He's different from other English teachers. Usually, they all teach in the same way, eg. go into groups, talk about the theme or setting or whatever, stand up in front of class, talk about what you found, teacher agrees or not and points some things out. But he just let's you work independantly, gives us lecture-type lessons (he talks, we sit, copy and listen if we want to or not) Explains NCEA systems well, like what to do and what not to do. Humorous :)

She is always grumpy with our class, she treats us like we are 5 year olds that know nothing about drama. She is very rude sometimes!! I think she is used to being a director and that shows when she is teaching. She does not listen to you. Ever since i was like 10 i wanted to do drama at high school, next year i am considering not taking it because of her. She is occasionally funny though, and she seemes like she's a nice person. But, i just dont like her as a teacher

I really enjoyed Mr Johnston's classes. He's straight up, chooses interesting texts to study, and is quietly encouraging.
