If you dont understand what hes teaching , is your fault not his .
Thats the only bad thing I can say about him .
It was straight forward maths and logic to him , so he didnt tolerate much misunderstanding .
Not good to be afraid to ask a question .
Apart from that he was a walking computer with a personality
A true gentleman.it was an honour to be thaught by him.a consummate professional who had great pride in himself and inspired others to do the same.i will be forever greatful
He had a passion for maths i haven't found anywhere else. Come on paddy, take up a job at ITT already.
I had the pleasure of having Mr Canavan as my class master for 5 years. He saved my life. Literally. Sometimes teachers do alot more than teach subjects. Now get out to the line!!!
Tough Teacher but i take my hat off to him he is one hell of a good teacher,we need more teachers like him!!!
Sad to see you go paddy. At least we are leaving the same year as you, so don't have to put up with an unlively school. Well done paddy on your countless years
"what the bloody?" PJ was a bit of a legend... there were far worse!
Really hard to talk to. If you try and explain why your late or anything, he'll just pass it off and put you down on report or something. I don't like him!
Used Fear to teach. But will always remember the way he cleaned the blackboard with one hand and the other hand would repeat the action in the opp. direction
Got me a B in honours, great teacher. Laugh at his jokes or u will be suspended.
Threats for the Inter and the Hawk for the Leaving. I had great maths teachers.
Scary but effective. I stared out the window for three years and he got me an honour in higher level JC maths. So long as you don't tick him off, he's not such a bad guy.
Sarcastic, destructive of belief that a pupil should have in their abilities. In his own words to me, is capable of doing much better.
This man saved my life.I was on the verge of suicide when I went to him about bullying.Now, having achieved a Bachelors Degree I am travelling the world.Class.
Rather aloof and unbending - did not convey any joy in teaching/educating
Watch out whacker is on the prowl.....very good maths teacher
