My name is Reuben Metcalfe. Derek Rufus-Ellis was my maths teacher 13 years ago.
Over a decade later I'm taking the time to give this man the highest marks possible - not because he was an average teacher who did his job - but because the man is a damn good teacher. He makes genuine connections with the students, and has an acute understanding of the nuances of humor, discipline, and how to get results from a roomful of young ego's. WBHS is lucky to have him, and the credibility he brings.

Rufio! Great guy. Doesn't take his job too seriously , always cracking jokes but a great teacher too. Some of the best quotes and nicknames I have ever heard came from that man. Not sure if he knows the definition of "PC" which is a refreshing change!
