*points to a nail in a block of cement* (teaching you is like trying to pull this nail out of this cement, it cant be done" way to encourage your students!!
Pointed to a poster saying "you are heading down a slippery slope" when I couldn't answer a question. Promptly left his class and never regretted it.
'what we gonna do right here is we gonna go back....way back' lol
One of the few teachers who make you think for yourself and not for an exam, dont let the catchphrases catch you out!
Still quote him even though I am nearly ten years out of school.. if you don't get his humour now you will dine out on it in later life. What an epic teacher. Appreciate.
really, really nice teacher, made our trip to Uganda a lot better
Mr Allen can be nice,but he will turn on you over nothing.He doesn't really teach either-his information quizzes and lectures about meaning of life are useless.
his favorite line is "thats right and bob is your uncle !!
Catchphrase - 'you're not really sorry - you might as well say grapes, it means as much'
loves the people she likes, hates the people she doesnt-no intermediate.
my friend had him for three years. she wont go anywhere near him now. shes terrified of him. a teacher shouldnt do that.
teaching is not about humour or being liked, its about getting the job done.he cares about respect, learning and self discipline
I didn't find his classes challenging or inspiring in the least. And I didn't get his sense of humour, either.
Makes the class so much fun. Really helpful always around when you need him. good work Mr. Allen
I loved Mr. Allen, he's hilarious...you all obviously just can't see the humour! I think he really cares about teaching too, I still OWN that information!
Really helped my confidence and wanted me to do well. Cool to talk to.
I thought she was really strict at first but now I think she's cool.
I still have nightmares about those information quizzes.
an okay teacher, but constantly insists on reffering to his family and how well they do in life! Gives good notes but can sometimes focus on irrelevant info
Mean??! What planet are you on? She was an amazing form teacher and got me through when I was having a major meltdown.
What have you all been smoking? Mr Allen is definetly one of the best teachers I've ever had and he is so funny. The guys a living legend! I love you mike
Is EXACTLY the same as Michael Douglas in the film 'Falling Down'. Quite a good teacher but goes nuts sometimes.
Cool if your one of his favourites.I used to be so scared of him in 1st year,likes you as you get older.Craics some good jokes
i wish he would actually teach us something..his jokes are funny sometimes except when he uses the same one over and over
cool teacher, actually wants to help u, and we have deadly conversations in class.
he is the sarkyest person in the world. dont find him funny
No sense of humour and never knows when to let the 'joke' go. Its like pulling a nail out of cement with you Allen. Its a slippery slope.
All of us who had him as a form master know the slippery slope Mike saved us from, "4 steps and then your gone! we will miss you we'll wave as you go"
loved it when he ripped it out of everyone in 4th yr humanities! have had my ups and downs with him but he's grand really
he does more for the school thru MUN than anyone could ask. tough indeed, but you need that. SAIMUN would collapse without him.
Thanks sir for an excellent MUN, what ever the rest say you have always supported me, cheers
Would it be possible for a teacher to be more rude? Not in my opinion anyway. Has very little respect for students.
One of my favourite teachers, love when hes ripping it out of people! 100% legend!
Leg End. Once threatened to machine gun the information into a wall in order to get a student's attention. Great man
since he's so intelligent he can think of great ways to explain things, good testing and teaching techniques too. can be strict or angry at times but is fair
not helpful. teases students, doesnt take them seriously.
Went down his slippery slope a few times but he's good!
allen is so fresh he's famous, probably the best teacher in the history of the world.
mr allen doesnt teach history well at all. he just tells u to do excercises and doesnt help you. and can be intimidating
top class teacher. really friendly and really helpful. one of the soundest teachers in the school.
Fantastic, will do anything to help a student understand. Explains something 20 times, in 20 ways, til everyone gets it, instead of just repeating forever.
