Everyone in my class seems to have a problem with him not sure why he's has the best intentions for his students and is really helpful and explains the assignments really well :)
Never had him as a teacher, but he's been an inspirational dean. Very intuitive and understanding, though he can ramble.
He taught me English & changed my attitude toward literature. He instilled in me a love of interpreting & analysing text. About to start my PhD & he's still one of the best teachers I've ever had
Mr Steel was and is an amazing teacher with a great passion for journalism. Without his support and guidance during my time in his classes at Wellington High I would not be working full time as a journalist now. It took me just two years to begin working in the industry and I thank Mr Steel for this.
He's often quite overly elaborate in his lesson speeches, but otherwise I think he's a pretty on-to-it dude. He's quite perceptive of the youth he teaches which makes him understanding but unable to fool easily. His teaching method of great trust in students is good, I think. We grow more responsible that way. RB
Best teacher I've ever had. I was in Mr Steel's class 2 years ago, and thanks to his teaching I got a job in journalism straight out of school. Laurie the lank is the MACK!
One of the best, although with a distinct tendancy to ramble, his one-minute talks often talking half an hour.
He is not a bad teacher but he has to stop talking! If he wants to talk for one minute only, forget to get anything done that period!
you're great mr steel, you seem to know all your kids really well, got it sussed, enthusiastic as about the cup hell yes! but the smoking bro? not a good role model there.
great passion for teaching, or for helping students, very organised and approachable, awesome dean.
Best dean I could imagine. Organised, perceptive and helpful.
Straight up dean who really cares about and knows the students. Haven't had him as a teacher but he's done great things with the Flannel.
Mr Steel is an awesome teacher.. very passionate! He treats us like adults which is really good and is a very caring dean. You rock Mr Steel!
He was my Dean from 3rd form too 7th. He was cool, you generally felt that he was looking out for you. He Never spoke down too me, which i respected alot. - Taimana Edwin
MAD PROPS STEELY-O! keep up the sweet dean + journo work. you're a freaking legend mate. :D
Mr Steel gives us a lot of freedom, he treats students like adults, theres a sort of mutual respect. Awesome dean too! One negative: His ridiculous love of soccer and badmington. Find a real sport!!!
I was a student (he must be ANCIENT now) 15-20 years ago. I found his classes intriguing, genuine and perhaps the closest to uni lecturers. good warm-up teacher if you're doing tertiary. thanks!
Great teacher very helpful and funny, my faveorite teacher of my high school experinece!!
