unique. hilarious sometimes, scary other times. Dreaded english first year, couldn't wait second year (though i'd never admit) Lucky to have had him,sad at his recent retirement. never will forget him
A funny and hugely informative teacher, actually cares about his students well-being beyond results, always looked forward to his classes
i really don't know how his class is so easy and his exams seem simple but you get the results and go what
Quite possibly the worst teacher of my life. Leaving his class got me my A in LC English and improved my education drastically. His 'wisdom' is one that he inflicts on his students.
i miss this man so much... he has an ephemeral yet endless aura of wisdom & clearly that is "wealth"
had the man for three years unfortunately this is no where near enough time to gain from his true brilliance. Legend of a man best teacher in the school and loves his tunes.
Scary at first,but you'll grow 2 understand that he is a brill teacher and dat der is a hidden houmor 2 him
in first year u would fear him but u would leave school realising that u loved him. a great character and a fine teacher
best teacher ever i love ur english class, thanks 4 everytin!
its over 10 yrs since i left this school but i always regret giving mr leyden such hassle. i loved him really but he was funnier when berating you.
brilliant teacher makes gave me an interest in english again,unbelieveable the way he can find the true meaning in poems dont no were he gets it but pure genius
Used to terrify me but now he teaches me English and he's a brilliant teacher and comes out with the funniestand bizzarest sayings and has a word for everything
A brilliant teacher, not just in religion or english, but in life. Thanks Mr. L for the laughs, tunes and inspiration.
he scared me in 1st yr im in d skul4yrs now and i've grown2love him he really nos his stuff...ya hes odd bu dats wat makes him interesting!
leyden makes me cringe. he is not a good teacher, just confuses you to the point you think he must be. many would be put out of their misery if he just left.
The best teacher ever!!So dynamic & passionate about his work, the funniest teacher in the school wen u get 2 no him
a shame,i used to enjoy english until this man taught me,very bizarre teaching methods,was very unclear in his guidelines for lc
Great teacher, takes a genuine interest in the class.
However odd the truth is schools and education gains from teachers like this.One of the oddest and best men I've ever been taught by.
those who had him know. best teacher since socrates. your wrong about nietzsche though.a student does a teacher no justice by remaining always a student.
Had Layden for religious Ed. He'a a Legend!! Prob the most interesting teacher I will ever have!!!! The bloke likes his tunes.
a smart man and a great teacher.bit of a legend really
those who had him for religion seem to rate him bad if u had him for english you would think different a great man
this guy was the man demands respect for student and knew when to give it back. misunderstood by some. but love others,
I have been out of the school for a few years now and still have so much admiration for this man He taught us more than we ever realised at the time. Thanks Sir
Wonderful guy, can understand some peoples dislike, but i found him inspirational, cheers YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN!
im finished school for the best part of 5 years now and i will always remember michael as the best teacher i ever had
Brilliant teacher,really gets involved with da class
I only had this guy for Religion, could be funny/interesting sometimes but usually it was just time to go to sleep.
One of the biggest influences in my life and like you know..i mean that. Thanks Sir.
fantastic guy, he really gets involved and actually cares!!!
