I graduated from Branksome over 20 years ago and to this day he is still my favourite teacher. He made learning fun and would nurture individual interests and bring out the best in his students. He had a great sense of humour but could be tough when needed. I have a huge amount of respect for him. He was the best teacher ever! I'm sorry for writing Bono is God on the board for all of Grade 11. :)

Great teacher, truly knows everything there is to know about modern history. He is also honest and opinionated, something I really appreciate.

Lovely man who is more than capable of teaching the courses he teaches. Which is more than I can say for the rest of the lot at Branksome.
