I found Mr. Cole to be very knowl;edgeable. He is highly intelligent bordering on genius. That said he does not relate well to teenagers .He flys off the handle at the slightest thing. He is like a temper time bomb.Maybe schizophrenia ?
Although Mr. Cole did have a very serious temper issue, he wasn't completely useless, he was passionate about the subject he taught. He wasn't the best woodworking teacher though, when he had his little anger outburst, and he ahem... Retired Mr. Theissen came back to replace him for the rest of the year. When Mr. T came back, none of the equipment was properly maintained, all of the blades on the majority of the equipment needed sent out for sharpening. Overall 3/5
The only reason why students don't like him is because they intentionally make him angry and then he flips his lid. If students just treat him with respect they would see how good of a teacher he is.
Honestly, in his first year of teaching, Mr. Cole presented a backbone that is rare in the teaching community. Coupled with the fact that he actually wanted to see us succeed at IT; I say he's cool.
He's pretty scary! You never know how he's going to act
He knows a lot and is usually quite cool but sometimes he flips his lid, aah.
