The only teacher to have ever climbed onto a desk, swung an electric cord around his head screaming, then jumped and knocked himself out for ten minutes. Thanks for the laughs T-bone

I still remember him climbing onto a table to read --- eh, I forget what, actually. I just remember the table. But, as a maths and science guy myself, he was the only English teacher I had who gave me a shot at enjoying the class..

I am a parent and I can vouch that this teacher single-handedly brought my boy into line and gave him a reason to start learning. My wife and I will be always grateful for Mr Calder and his magic.

He is an ok teacher if you listen to him but his inability to control the class really lets him down. Often studies texts at junior levels where the ideas are to high intellectually.
