One of my favourite teachers I had at this school. He was easily the best teacher in the Geography department. Though his only contender was Ms Nguyen. All the tests he gave us were on Wednesdays, which are shortened periods, so we had 15 minutes less to finish the tests. He was really friendly, funny and an all-around good teacher. Unfortunately, he got moved to another school, allegedly for calling the other Geography teacher a derogatory term during an argument.

Tests were way too hard, but the guy is a legend. When you get puns, fishing trip stories, and emails with hip abbreviations, you can't complain about grades.

literally one of the best teachers I've had at mci. he was my homeform teacher for grade 9 and he was so helpful with making a smooth transition. He can help you with literally every question your bring to him, is super nice, not too strict and really clear with instructions and deadlines. He does get stressed and loses patience closer to exams and summatives but who doesnt?
