Absolute best teacher I've ever had. I hate everything about high school and can't stand going, but having Mr. Brown all three years made it bearable, I don't know what I would have done if it weren't for him. Truly amazing guy, you get the feeling he actually cares, he treats students as equals and is a very nice and funny guy. Not to mention he knows the subject matter so well, and I learned more in his class than any other. Great teacher and person. Thank you Mr. Brown.

Mr. Brown's class is incredibly fun to attend. First English class I've ever attended that has and meets a challenging curriculum. Nicest guy you'll ever meet.

This man changed my life. A true homie, he is one with the student body. Who else would have exposed me to the wonders of T.S. Elliot or the beautiful Czech tongue of Franz Kafka? Much like Harold Kyte, he knows how to rock a yellow dress shirt. Can always count on him to flip a water bottle or lecture us about Julius and Brutus and their bro-dynamics. Truly a good guy. I wish him the best.

Probably the best teacher I've ever had, teaches me for IB English, he makes school enjoyable when otherwise I wouldn't be able to stand going. Many thanks going out to him.

Treats his students as equals and it really makes a difference. Intelligent, understanding, and most likely to be crowned King of Deadpan Humour. Just don't slack off.

He's honestly just such a friend. Even though I dread his class (because I can't sit still as is) It's still fun, no lies.

Mr. Brown is the man, however he does tend to put students in grade brackets and it is hard to move out of a "bracket" even if you work your butt off in his class.

He's a very good teacher, but when I did my own work all by myself, but in the start of the year, he is doing like we were at the elementary school, like spelling and definitions. But later, every week, we do newspaper article, and he read 2 novels, but anyways, I don't need help on him, for on my own.

The best English teacher ever!!! Not only is he always available for help with school, he's also great to joke around with. He is very knowledgeable and explains things very well. Not only that, but he has a great sense of humor which makes going to class so much fun. I honestly looked forward to each English class, and the days I had English were the best days. He was one of the highlights of high school.
Words cannot express how much I loved being in his class.

Exceptional teacher. He would always encourage our English class to get to the meaning of a story/poem, and really expanded my outlook on the world. His class is better than a philosophy class!

By far, my best experience at Sydney Academy was in Mr Brown's English 12 class. He is bright, helpful and very dry. My only regrets - not being in his grade 10, 11 classes.
