From my daughters experience he's an absolute bully, especially towards female pupils. Heard this from a number of people too.
Took me for PE around 1980-1982, he was fresh out of university but was keen. I liked him and his youth did get many of the female students liking PE
Nice bloke, but has a tendancy to pic on people who are below 4foot
GREAT pe teacher!! dead on and very good at making you do your best!!
its been awhile but what i remember of Mr.McDowell was he pushed you in a good way. loved him , made PE enjoyable. thanks Mr McDowell for pushing me.
has a short fuse..but is sound!! needs to cool down his temper at times....but cool guy
A bully, If your not fit and interested in PE then id recommend skipping the class!
very well known for his temper but is a sound enogh guy when he wants to be
Nice guy, and as long as you took part, he did his best to make pe enjoyable
