An absolute gentleman. I can sill remember the sound of his voice as he read years September 1913. Superb
Wonderful appreciation for words. He managed to instill this in students and that's an amazing achievement. Not a brilliant teacher, but a great critic of literature and that made him the best at CBS.
Matt had his bad days but who dosent, he had an interest in his subject & his students and in a school full of below average teachers Matts class was a welcome break. A genuinely nice man.
he had his moods at times but generally a good teacher with genuine interest. He told some great stories about life and living in the day.
If want to give a negative comment about Matt it might say more about you than him. Top class, Tough, Fair. Teaches as a vocation not as a job. Thanks Matt. You made it bearable.
Sound out great craic didn't get too stressed out mad into the hurling
Sound guy who gave every one a chance and made learning very easy
Funny guy who could have a laugh and still be a good teacher
