I did well at Maths, Mr. Scannell was one of my maths. Teachers. I could not put my good result down to him, he did help but I had better teachers along the way. He could be quite errattic, maybe his changes in mood could be down to his life outside school. He liked to be one of the boys but I am not sure if this attitude was good for all pupils in his classes. He prided himself on a few roth learned sayings.
The best teacher I have ever come across
Ska! used to cycle from cross haven everyday still remember catchphrase :WAFFLE: a gent and a marvellous teacher
A brilliant teacher. Got an A in inter cert maths due to this man. Many thanks!
Outstanding, on another level altogether. Should be a professor of maths. He could tear apart a theory lay it out bare and explain it in simple terms so mind numbingly obvious. Fantastic
Met Mike in 1975. Amazing mentor!! Have the priviledge to know him. Hope the sofa is ok. Let me know when you need another one. Best regards and thanks.
i think that he is a very nice teacher and you can have a laugh with him and a very understanding teacher
the scan-man gave me grinds in Achill Island, i knew from just a few grinds that he was a LEGEND.. he should ave been a comedian......
I have been to 4 secondary schools and sca is the best teacher i ever had what a legend
After 24 years, I still have very good memories of him. Could be sarcastic at times but a great teacher and good fun.
Genius!Truly.Taught us not only about Maths but about life.Amazing stories,parables,euphemisms,the lot.Loves his rowing and used to cycle to school.
Mr Scannel has been know to be a bit eccentric, but any one how knows him will say that he is one of the best teachers you will ever meet,
a bit eccentric, but very good,and dedicated. helped me get an A in the LC
50 years from now i will still remember mr scannel, he was one of the most unusual teachers iv ever had the pleasure of learing from. thanks for everything.
lol i still have my notes and everthing from him he completly rocks, got me through the JC what a man!! hows the algerBRA coming along?? hehe
Word to the Ska. A legend in his own lifetime.Respect. One of those guys who makes an impact on your life.
Mick is a very good teacher with lots of experience. He has a very good method of explaining mathematical problems.
Teaching method was bizarre but the crazy stories made the class bearable! Knew his stuff alright!
