This guy mentions his diabetes at least three times every lecture. He has an okay personality if you are not overly sensitive and are partial to hearing his same extremely long 5 stories on repeat. I wouldn't recommend to anyone over year 11. If you get him in year 12 or 13 switch. He wastes an IMMENSE amount of time on himself and gave up teaching us in the last semester and made us read from textbooks instead. Complete time waster who could condense each lesson by 30 minutes.

Didn't learn much. Had him for bio. Picks favourites within the class and ignores everyone Else. He knows his bio though. Goes on on irrelevant topics. Just scraped in decent grades but had to get tutoring

I will always remember the first day in Mr MacDonald's class, Calling out the role and assuring me that i'll be getting great marks in that class once he said my name.
It took me 6 months to figure out what he meant by this as i never learnt his first name till then.
Good teacher, he does like to tell a story or two but majority of my teachers did at the time.
I have never used what he taught me (Job vise) but they have been great use in pub quiz's
Cheers Colin form another Colin.

Someone likes the sound of his own voice. I've learnt a lot about his family and his life, little about science.
