Class of 2005 here, had Mr Bright for a couple of years as an English teacher. Lacks the spark that most teachers have, seems to go through the motions as a teacher, treats it as a job more than a car

It's not a feeling. He does smoke and I know it for a fact. Not that it bothers me nor does it affect his personality. Likeable and helpful, but haven't had him as a teacher. But from what I've heard, he knows his stuff and knows how to teach. But he is a bit egocentric, to be honest.

Thinks he can intimidate students. Told our class that "he was bigger than most of us". Seems to be stuck in the old days where size did matter, not that a teacher should be concerned with fighting students anyway. Good teacher when he teaches and doesn't spend his time picking on people and making generalisations. His past experiences in life appear to make him stereotype teenagers into being "druggies" and "waggers". If you want to pass, he can help you. If you want to learn peacefully, don't have him....

Unique style where yelling and throwing his toys out of the cot seem to feature a lot. Interesting though that it seems to work. Shows Shakespeare film before reading text, much easier to understand.

Definately believes in making students work for themselves. He's hard, but he's fair. Has some interesting methods of extracting effort from his students.
