This man is the only reason I come to school. Literally everything that comes out of his mouth is gold.

The guy literally fell asleep in every class not even exaggerating. The fact that he is still a teacher is beyond disbelief. Many students would record him sleeping and he wouldn't even notice because he is in such a deep sleep. I respect that he served in the war but that does not exempt him from the act of failing to teach due to falling asleep. Ironically many teachers talked about how good of a teacher he is. Maybe in his prime like 20 years ago? He needs to retire for students sake.

He's a good guy maybe a little lazy but there's nothing wrong with him he has a good sense of humor and I remember looking forward to all his lessons just because he's a bit old school and makes you write notes instead of simply getting a sheet doesn't make him a bad teacher. Overall good guy but wouldn't particularly recommend him for teaching classes at the very top end.

Always tells the best stories, however be prepared to learn absolutely nothing. Dictates notes to the class that he blatantly copies off the first Google result for whatever text you're studying.

Used to the best period of the day, never learned anything though and once he actually fell asleep and I got some mean close up shots on my phone. Gets so easily off topic

Only reason people don't like him is because he makes you write a lot. They're usable notes and he gives you a great deal of context, people who don't like him just expect him to spoonfeed you.

Great teacher. Was personally devastated if he asked a question the class couldn't answer. "Not one boy!" Made you do the learning yourself. If youre lazy, expect to fail.

Mr Thom is the king. I've been out of the Grammar pen a decade now and he's the only teacher who's stayed with me. The eccentricities bring you in, but you stay for the teaching. The world needs more like him.

Loud BOOMING voice. Gives heaps of notes to write down. He will criticise your essays constructively outside of class hours if approached. Also makes some random comments during class and a bit picky (Shirt in, boy. Socks up)
