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.
if you cant get along with Mr. McKenna then it's your problem! He was a GREAT teacher and im sure he's a solid principal too
very bad principal... to strict.. Ms NÃ AnnrachÃ¡in is much better
lovely man once u dont get on the wrong side of him he loves the 6th years
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.
hated him 4 three years but if u actually get to know him hes really nice!!!! (i know hard to believe)
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.
Great personality. Tells terrific jokes. Made me laugh so hard I almost had a bowel movement right there in the hallway!!! Undoubtedly one of the best. I think he is great.
INDIANNA JONES is all i have to say on this matter.You all know what i mean!
brilliant teacher who was totally dedicated to his students regardless of their abilities. it's a shame he doesn't seem to teach anymore
Not bad when u get 2 know him. He can actually be a nice man. And I ain't even in 6th year! :-)
Will hold a grudge and can be "difficult" to say the least sometimes. Good Teacher though, but does have downfalls used to throw marker lids at me.
any chance of 3mins in a ring with this mean arrogant individual?
Excellent teacher. Gave us extra classes during the ASTI strikes - genuine commitment.
Marenna! ye have to pity this guy, a very lonely, bitter, sour individual. Poor form Pat!
used to make me even later for class by making me stand in a que and wait for a late note.the irony.good teacher though.
just get to 6th year and your sound he doesnt care then he talks to us as people . really a sound person
Cares more about Adult Education than PSN. Why else would you close an entire base when there are teachers without their own rooms?
Makes everyone nervous even the teachers sometimes. Can hear him a mile away when he is shouting at someone
honestly,i think mc kenna is sound. once you get to know him,he's easy to talk to and have a laugh with. its just that sometimes he has to show authority, otherwise students will j
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...
took a complete dislike against me.tried to make my life hell.i got good grades though.
brilliant teacher, made me really passionat about science
he knocked my confidence completely.only interested in A students.a big chip on his shoulder.
obviously the students making these comments know nothing! otherwise they would respect McKenna and realise that he is a great teacher
Never thought me a lot - places a lot of pressure for no reason.
Bring McKenna back to the classroom,the best teacher i have ever had
he is a nice guy but has little or no respect for many students.if u cross him once he never listens 2u again even if ur in the right
Has bad attitude 2ward underacheivers, but knows his stuff and has a remarkable ability to explain complicated course material.Gud teacher IF ur willing to work
Since becoming vice principal we have lost the most obliging and helpful teacher ever
