He's not easy because he's hard... like. VERY HARD. And we know now why he's the chair of English: he wants to be the chair. Students sit on chairs. All he needs now is a Santa outfit. Look out, Calooby is coming.

NOBODY knows the truth about what happened other than the alleged victim and Garraway himself. Victor Garraway was a brilliant educator. I had sat in his office alone many a time and had never felt threatened or uneasy for moment. He inspired, challenged, ridiculed, and raised the bar for teaching at Marianopolis, and I dare even say in Montreal itself.

Don't listen to that dude who rated three times. Garaway is actually the best teacher and person I've ever met yet in my life. Take him if you good in English because you will get the mark that you merit. But if you are not good in English, you still have to take him because I swear you will improve your English skills more than you do with any other teacher. But don't expect a mark more than what you're supposed to have because Garaway only gives the mark that you merit.
