Great teacher. Bit of craic, doesn't give homework, definitely a helpful teacher
Even though he is old-fashioned in some ways, he is still a good teacher for geography. Got me a B in Junior Cert.
doesn't give homework , great teacher everyone does well in his class
Bully is correct. Unnecessary arrogance for a man you is teaching PE
Never liked the man, thought he was a bully and I could never understand why he stayed in the job. Had no interested in actually teaching and enjoyed picking on certain students.
Very good teacher, but a hard man to get along with.
He's a good teacher but waffles on a bit too much in class...
very passionate teacher really motivates his class and gets the best out of them. what more could you ask for?
Sound teacher...and really good at his job. Makes everything easy to understand. Hated Geog before i had him -now its one of my best subjects
am left school now but rodger was over teams i was on.amazing ability to motivate guys.would go through a brick wall for him .got school teams on a winning path after being in a rut.passionate coach.
totally different to what i thought .class works well n discipline very good .am enjoying subject cos he explains it very well n my grades are improving .
A good dean, and also a good teacher as well, and always using sport language to express situations, e.g: 'there'll B a football final in 9 weeks' another words there'll be Exams in 9 weeks.
we have done more in a month with him than we did al year last year.makes subject interesting n sets very high standards.
thanks for the `A` in junior cert.he always said `A` was for atitude and he made sure ours was right .A GREAT teacher.
puts in huge effort in classes.expects same from us.people who doss in other classes made to work .passionate about subject n finds great ways to explain it n make it interesting.
if u listen n put in d effort this guy will get d very best out of u.top drawer teacher n genuinely interested in pupils unlike some .very sound bloke.
respect.helped me loads to get my best result in leaving cert.very motivated n really puts in d work.good sense of humour too.
dont know why hes getting a hard time .firm but fair.only d messers get a hard time n dey deserve it .one of best teachers in school. great hurling n football manager too .
deadly teacher.explains tings very well.best result i got in junior cert by a mile .cant speak highly enough of him .always tries to motivate u to do your best
He is a good geography teacher but takes up a lot of time talking about sports. He tries 2 get the best out of us and does not treat us like kids like other teachers.
Loves you if your good a sport, hates you if your not. Simple as that
hardworking,dedicated and driven teacher.tried to get the best out of all his students.personality wise found him arrogant & ignorant @ times.who needs to pay 6k for notes,genius!
great man.Expected us to act like men which made a nice change.Good fun and very funny
PURE LEGEND OF A TEACHER!!! SOUND MAN TOO. GREAT AT MANAGING THE SPORTS TEAMS, I LOVE THAT MAN!!!
Have to say I got on great with Rogder! sound man. Just doesn't like seeing lads waste their time when they're actually talented.
Hate to break it to ye, but he uses notes from the Institute!!!
Rodge is cool...we get along but i dont do any work,other than that we are buddies! Hopefully will pass geog cause of him....but i do miss Mr.C!!
Rodger was a legend! I played loadsa sport, and was the best manager I ever had! Got me a couple of GAA medals: U.16-1999, U.18-2001! Gr8 times!
Really puts in the work.Has dragged my class right up, as they are mostly toerags.Great laugh.Excellent teacher.
didnt tink he was as bad as evry1here seems2say.he cud b hard at times but in d end he made sure u learned ur lesson
comes out at least 10 mins late when we only have 40 mins for PE. other than that no complaints
Sound. grows on you. likes anyone who dont think they are god. great man
hated him from 1st year to 5th year.but when he came in to the class on the first day of 6th year to replace slim it was like a nightmare.but he grows on you
Always willing to lend a hand, always helpful, have met him several times since leaving and he's as nice as i rmber!
rodger ryan loved you one minute then hated you the next-seemed v. frustrated with himself/his job & took that out on everyone else
A little bit of power can really go to peoples heads. Unfortunately that was the case with Roger. He has an unbelievable boring job, and I think he takes his frustration out on the
HE IS A MAN WHO OFTEN GIVES GREAT ADVICE,I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT AND TIME FOR HIM.A TOUCH OF SPORTS PSYCHOLOGIST,IF HE ASKED YOU,YOU'D GO THROU A WALL FOR HIM
I'm out of Oatlands a few years. After-school study was well worth doing, I wasn't good at sports but have no complaints about Mr. Ryan. I found him a nice man.
My big problem was he never varied the classes, it was soccer or basketball, there has to be more dont you think??? Also After School Study was a knightmare!!!
Ok PE teacher, sometimes did'nt make it fun though. Its true that he favours the talented sports people.
Tried way too hard in my day, hope he has chilled out. no middle ground - loves you or hates you
A good teacher but favours the sports person! But all round great guy. Best advice u will ever get, listen to this mans words.
Nice guy, deserved a bit more credit. He was a decent bloke when on his good side. If u were a lazy git, he hadnt the time of day for you, fair enuf really.
Favours the best sportsmen - no interest in helping pupils who are not good at sports
He has his moods!Either a good laugh or a pain in the hole!
Class man. Only have a problem with him when he comes late for PE! But he is a legend.
Not a trustworthy individual. Did not in anyway inspire me.
