What an amazing teacher. Our daughter was in his Coffee House. It was wonderful. She is not in his class, but she speaks so highly of him. He is able to organize the other staff and students to create a magical evening. May the 4th Be With You!!!!

My daughter is in his class. She is a good student, but struggles. I can's believe the way he organizes his class to get them to do assignments in steps. The encouragement and comments on all of the projects are amazing. He let her re-do her assignment 3 times, until is as at a level 3. She is so happy and wants to go to school now.

He was the best teacher I ever had and now I am in university and I wish I had paid more attention to him, instead of being worried about marks. My profs do not believe my essay skills but that is all thanks to Rowat. Miss him. Remember the Athenians!

There are some great teachers at St Joes but there are alot that could learn from Mr Rowat. When I was sick and missed tests, he was so nice when I came back. He let me write the test when I was ready. My other teachers just said tough luck you were absent get caught up. and I aced the test. Great teacher. Very funny. I would rate him an ELEVEN.

I HATE history and always have, until I had mr rowat as a teacher. He has amazing teaching skills and he is so funny. He makes history fun because of how much he is obsessed with it. It makes you want to know as much as he does. He truly cares about your education as he always tries to talk to the class one by one after a test/assignment. I wish I had him for every class tbh

I didn't like him at first. But I missed a week of school and he gave up lunch hours and MADE me get back on track. He wants you to know a lot of stuff, which is sometimes unrealistic, since the guy is a walking encyclopedia, BUT He really wants you to LEARN. He got me to learn and think for myself. He gets so passionate about history, it's hard not to join in. Now I even laugh at his jokes sometimes. Great teacher.

One of the most wonderful teachers I have had in my entire school career. He is extremely knowledgeable and witty. He comes up with the most amusing references (Lord of the Rings, etc.). I will truly miss him as a teacher. Treat him well. :)
