Fantastic geography teacher, he know how to get the best out of you, and a relatively reasonable year head ;-)
This man, altho v scary was a great geography teacher. Apart from those v-shaped valleys, which were very hard! And those free hand circles - quality!
Despite a friend of mines struggle with v shaped valleys, i thought he was excellent. Listen in class and you never even need to open the book.
Very good teacher glad to see that current students still think highly of him as it is 20 years since he taught me
