He is sometimes cruel with most students be we always seem to be able to handle him. Sometimes he does go kind of too far with his taunting of other students but he makes up his cruelness with satire. But you can see past all is jokes and is constant threat of calling you out on a question you clearly dont know, but the thing that just gets EVERYONE is his marking. It is ridiculous. You make one grammar mistake and he takes off 1 mark out of 5, ridiculous.He is a good teacher but horrible person

Again, another teacher with alot of unjustified hate. He may seem a bit aloof, but he knows how to teach. Not too clear though, and the way he teaches makes things seem hard.

nice teacher.... when he wants to be. I liked most of the time. It was really annoying this year when he said "grade 9 don't we love it" and grade 9 this and grade 9 that. Ok so grade 9s aren't perfect. Oh and he never forgets when you miss a class. Just to let you know mr.tannahill, just because someone misses ur class doesn't mean they skipped

Wow, he's been critiqued quite harshly. He's been a good teacher. Though I think it's impossible for him to completely understand the Gr 9 mind, he still knows what he's doing. And too much homework? He might give a page of homework at most!

Mr. Tannahill is to critical with gr 9. He's always telling us how bad we are compared to his other classes, saying we're the worst class in X years... He REALLY needs to retire. JEEZ! But, to be positive about him, he's an OK teacher, likes to make unessary jokes (expecially funny noises, randomly). He's a bit discrinative to certain races.
