Wow. Mr Byron. I wish I could have been in your class for a thousand years- two wasn't enough. You are hilarious and knowledgeable and concerned and intelligent, and an absolutely incredible teacher. It is impossible to compare you to any other teacher. Your high expectations have taught everyone invaluable lessons, and you truly embedded a love for history in all your students. We will do great things one day, and it's all because of you. Be proud! You will never EVER be forgotten! Thank you

Byron's one of those teachers that you will never ever forget in a thousand years. A great guy, passionate and concerned with the world, endlessly knowledgeable -- there are very few people, let alone teachers, that can be truly called Great, but if anyone can be given that title, it'd be Byron.

Byron is wonderful. I'm so sad he is retiring. I had him for a year and he made my life. His class was a lot of work and you had to stay on top of it but he was so smart and funny and he made me understand everything. He taught me how to write amazing essays and he is so wonderful. I die of happiness whenever he smiles at me in the hall. My favourite teacher of all time. He made me love History.

HISTORY IB=TORTURE! although he is such a funny and a smart, articulate person that you will admire, it is such a huge mistake to take history if you are in IB diploma and not willing to give ur all!

Hardly easy, but don't be afraid. He's probably the best teacher I've ever had; he makes history really interesting and pretty much taught me how to write. Pretty sure he could be a stand-up comedian.
