Strict because he has to be. Actually sound once you get to know him. He stops the school from descending into chaos. He's the hero we need... not the one we deserve.

Very disrespectful to students, very intimidating, no interpersonal skills. Personally I don't think he should be principal.

He is a fantasic man despite what many believe. I originally found him unapproachable, but what many forget is that the role of vice principal made him the disciplinarian. Good cop bad cop, Mary and Pat - fantastic duo! They mademy school days some of the best of my life! I believe he'll be a good principal in the new year, only time will tell.

One of the keys to being a good teacher is trying to get the best possible result for a student assuming the student puts in the effort. In my experience he was only interested in A students and demeaned students with less ability. Not surprised at his rating here.

His hobbies include shouting, acting like has important things to do when he CLEARLY hasn't,shouting,and wearing the most expensive of pinstriped suits. School wouldnt be the same without him ,though.

Very dry sense of humour, now that I've left school I appreciate it even more. He was very amusing, made students want to impress him with doing better work.

In my experience: no time for those not interested in learning the subject, lots of time and patience for those who do. In 3 years at Nessans, one of my favourice teachers.

Cares more about Adult Education than PSN. Why else would you close an entire base when there are teachers without their own rooms?

Mc Kenna's a good man. The people who are moaning about him are most likely those who arrive in school at 09:30 every day...
