Okay I don't know what is up with that age thing but right now I am 14 years old. Anyway Mr. Spillane is THE BEST teacher I've ever had. He makes learning fun and explains things clearly and in detail. Also unlike some teachers Mr. Spillane gives us fun assignments that we need to complete by a certain date. With Mr. Spillane I will never fail my English exams. :)
Pat was an amazing teacher back in the late 80's when I was at Glendowie. I have very fond memories of him and glad to see over the years he is still greatly valued. I just hope he is still teaching in the next 10 years so that my children might have a chance to experience what a wonderful teacher he is! Donna (Nightingale)
Mr Spillane is a pretty good English teacher... not the best I've had though... He's a VERY easy marker, and tends to have favourites and talks a lot throughout the lesson which detracts from productivity. He's very wishy-washy about deadlines and stuff like that... not exactly helpful when trying to balance homework from 7 other subjects!
OBVIOUSLY the best teacher EVER. Everybody loved him so much in our class (10dr a few yrs back), so understanding and compassionate. I learnt so much from him not only about english but about how to be a better person. Everybody in his class are extremley privilaged to be taught by this amazing man.
Mr Spillane was the best teacher! If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have topped Year 12 English!
Mr Spillane was the best teacher I had in High School. I'm old now and have a child of my own, but I'm thrilled to see that hes still there inspiring students the way he inspired me.
He's a hero to us all. He was a great form teacher in 2007 and surely must be an amazing English teacher.
He is the best teacher at this school (in my opinion) i mean, he makes you enjoy English SO MUCH!!!! Its just.....FANTASTIC
Mr Spillane is such a cool teacher and the book that he wrote 'ANIMAL FALLOUT' is fabulous...

hes pretty much the man id say .. yer.. the man pretty much sums him up . Not much else to say.

Wow can't believe he is still there. I am from the class of 94 and in my schooling I had him for 2 yrs for english and he was always a great teacher whom I loved to learn from. Always had a smile and even when unusual students like myself were in his class he was still so nice. A great teacher and inspiration. Only hope my kids could have a teacher as good as him when they get to High School level.
He's the best teacher I've ever had, over all subjects over all years
The top English teacher in Glendowie. Mr Spillane taught me in the beginning of my english days, when i struggled. He helped me develop my skills and even gain some good marks. Im at Uni now, and its because MR Spillane is an excellent teacher. He put extra time into me, and read my essays during the holidays and exam breaks. He has the skill, intelligence and integrity and represents GD to the fullest. Thanks Heaps and By god you are a good bloke.
He's the best english teacher in the school. Great at teaching english, and also good at keeping the class interested. Only problem is he tends to have favouritism.
Unfortunatly I have never had Mr. Spillane as a teacher. I would like to becasue I respect him as a teacher and I hear his praises sung by all students taught by him. Scary when angered though :P - Anon Ymous
Go Mr Spillane. You were an awesome teacher. Much appreciated
the best english teacher you can get. From acheived to excellence
Sadly, I only had Mr Spillane for a mere two terms, 4 years ago. I still to this day remember how awesome he was at teaching and making the subject so enjoyable. Such a great guy, a real inspiration.
This guy is by far the greatest teacher in existence. He's the Jesus Christ of the English department
AMAZING. he is extremely helpful, will do whatever he can to help us to achieve with the best of our ability. I respect him for his awesome teaching and his accepting personality.
Wonderful, he teaches with a positive relaxed teaching style.
one of the best english teachers, awesome sense of humour
