My favourite English teacher. When you show an interest in literature he really picks up on it - and will lend you mounds of books! And who can complain with poems by Ferlinghetti?

Very dedicated and prepared. Loves his subject, which he conveys while teaching. Allows his students to get quite a bit out of his classes.

MacKinlay was also my sax teacher from grades 4-12. It's been a while! As a teacher myself, I appreciate teachers like Bruce. He expects your absolute best. Thanks! S.W.
