I wasn't at Aotea for very long and since I didn't start the same time the rest of my year group did I felt like I didn't bond too well with the teachers... that was until I met Mr Pryde. He is such a great teacher. 11/10

Derek Pryde makes every lesson a journey into wonderland. He is hugely entertaining and the topics he chooses to study are always interesting. Even though he has come to Tawa College from another school, and switched from teaching economics to History, he is evidently very highly knowledgeable in both areas. He is calm, approachable and makes every students relax and enjoy the ride. Every time I walk into Derek's class, I know I am in for a good time, with lots of learning and lots of fun.

Mr Pryde has been pretty much my favourite teacher in the last five years. He actually cares about his students which is something so rare in teachers. In history i do the work because i dont want to disappoint him, because i want him to be proud of me. He is fantastic, and i am so grateful to have had him as a teacher.

My Pryde is absolutely amazing, he is constantly trying to help his students through both the internals and the externals. If he doesn't know the topic that you are writing about in the external (we're allowed to choose what we want) he'll endeavour to learn about the topic to help you. Mr Pryde is a fantastic teacher and is open with students about most things, he furthermore is there for his students both with the school work and outside of school. EG he helped me with my Uni Applications.

He is a fantastic and supportive teacher who believes in absolutely everybody.
He just needs to improve the way he disciplines people and personally I think he should be stricter.
He has taught me a lot and I love coming to his class.

Mr Pride is such a great teacher! He always explains things more then once and in ways that we can understand. He always has fun learning to do and uses rewards such as chocolate or funny movie clips at the end or each lesson.
