Mr. McKenna wins the prize of being my favourite teacher, as a Science student unsure of what electives to take I always ended up taking his classes. There is yet to be a teacher or professor that I am yet to learn more from. His teachings about history, the world, and life in general (intro to anthropology, sociology, and psychology) have stayed with me into higher education. He is one educator that has truly made a difference in my life.
Inspiring teacher. Very positive and easy to talk to. Really prepares you for university! Encourages you to be the best you can be.
Very opinionated and assumes students care about the material when sometimes they clearly don't. If you do not agree with him, be prepared to back it up because you're going to end up under fire. Asks
I hated history until I had his class. He's a good teacher; smart, opinionated, funny.
He is a very wise, helpful man who is an excellent teacher.
Mr. McKenna made me love history, he's teaching method made the class very enjoyable and created an environment conducive to learning. He gave excellent examples to illustrate his teachings.
best teacher ever! enjoysble class that you actually learn in, have an informed opinion and you'll be fine. i guess if you don't..either get informed or stay quiet.
McKenna once correlated a can of beans to the French Revolution...for an hour and fifteen minutes...no other teacher on the planet can do that.
I've already had him twice and can always count on him for a smile in the halls and a debating buddy. Can't wait for more good times with McKenna!
great teacher.. hey has discussions instead of the spray and prey method most teachers use. hes great
He was a great teacher for me and helped me learn alot about history and myself. I am glad he is still at CPHS more than 15 years after I had him as a teacher
Mr.McKenna is by far the best teacher I've ever had. I heard he was scary, but if you're a good student, you'll love him. He inspires you do go beyond what you'd normally do.
Both knowledgable and wise, he has my greatest respect.
mr. McKenna is an awsome teacher, he has the best stories to tell about his life experiences. thank you for everything you have done for me!!!!
He isn't a bad teacher, he dislikes me quite a bit but overall hes pretty cool.. he has some sweet BIAST stories.
Be informed before you step into a discussion with Mr. McKenna. He knows his opinions very well, and if you're unsure of yours, be ready to be torn to shreds!
Great teacher who is able to blend class discussion into his class, helping to make his classes both more interesting and more absorbable. He cares for us too.
enthusiastic... sometimes hard to follow. very valuable overall experience.
His lectures are great. Always willing to help students having trouble .
