Mr Rowly was my form teacher for all of my years at Hawera High. He would get grumpy at kids that mucked around in his classroom which is totally fair enough!

I wonder about the age and maturity of some of these comments, mainly because I know Mike can be much more authoritarian with younger students. Personally he was the best English teacher I ever had (1999). As for being marked down for not doing homework... did you read the text? Cause that's homework. Also despite what you might think, teachers aren't there to make you do anything. That's your choice.
Rowly can be an aight teacher, when he wants to be. But usually he's on his lil' 'ol laptop rambling on about nothingness... And to all ye students who complain 'bout his bad temper.. /shrug. Dunno what ya'll on about. He seems nice enough, pretty learned too. =D
Ur Classroom used ta be messy but nw its really clean, im suprised. but u dnt even giv us hmwrk nd den wen it seys on our report dat we ddnt do it hw culd we hav dun it if u never gave it??
Rowly is one of the rare people in the school system that will teach you lessons relevant to life in the big bad world, rather than how to pass an exam that has no outcome beyond student gratifacation. He is a brilliant mind with an enviable work space of CREATIVE CHAOS! You dero's that need to be spoonfed education deserve more than a tin thrown at you.
Had Mr Rowley as a form teacher for 5 years - and as an english teacher in 3rd.4th form also. We enjoyed being in his class even if he did teach slightly off topic
Never had him as a teacher but involved with other things. At least he Mr Rowly will say hi to you to this day.
He does set work but he just doesnt enforce it. If you need help you need to go to him directly and clearly explain that u dont understand.he does get very mad sometimes but he can spot a creative mind a mile away.
