RIP in peace Mcdermott, hope all is well.
i will never forget this teacher, one of the funniest teacher i've ever had in my life. when i had him, he use to take us to the cafeteria and buy us stuff and he even gives students money but now i can't believe he's gone
He was amazing. He was my English teacher at Westwood between 79-83. I had him for 3 of those years and he was one you would never forget. All the best to you Mr. McD! I will never forget your eraser story :)
hands down amazing teacher! I learned a lot of REAL WORLD stuff that opens one's minds he was exceptional always looked forward to being in his class best class in all of my 4 years in AHSS
so what has happened with him, nothing else known have not heard what happened to him
He is an amazing teacher with different techniques of teaching.
Best teacher ever. #freemcdermott #freemcdermott #freemcdermott
He is the best teacher I've ever had. I miss his lecture and I am really upset with that whole charge... Great mentor for all teachers.
Amazing. I have experienced my very first epiphany in Applewood because of you.
LISTEN. he is the BEST teacher you will EVER have in your life. he's funny and you'll get a gooood mark. he might seem intimidating but to get a good mark,just participate in class,thats what he wants
I think Dennis McDermott is a great mentor for all teachers. I started out as a young teacher at Applewood and had a horrible experience, but looking back on what Dennis said to me, I still carry his advice with me and am glad that he was such a great mentor. It's awesome to see you're still around!
Awesome teacher for history, great at pulling you into his lectures
I would often skip Ms. Gabrielle's class to listen to his lectures. The students in his class have said they are learning about WWII, but I hear him talking about Evolution. Not one person was fidgeting or being distracted, everybody stared and listened to the deep conversation.
Such a mystery man. Hes the best teacher you'll ever get. he so filled with knoweldge. a very intellegent man. He's a bit usual when teaching the class, but that's what makes the class to deep, and fun to listen to. Hes number one out of every teacher in this school.
Doesn't teach any of the course material very well, but you learn about stuff that you'll actually use some day. Definitely one of the funnier teachers in the school, too.
unforgettable! great teacher and man who has been shot down by his higher administrators on more than one occasion and i think has lost interest... a man who really wants to retire and be with his family! i love him to death! hes a great great guy!
moron,hasnt taught us anything all year, hasnt marked any of our assignments, worst teacher eva
This man taught me everything about how Applewoods new policies work, now I will crush them from the inside. I thank you, you are a great man.
hmm he is such i nice teacher i knw that he taches in a diffent way but they work ....and i always enjoy in his class .....
i have not learned one thing from the curriculum, but so much about everything else. i have to read the newspaper so that i can know what he's going to talk about next.
He is amazing. He will put the same note up on the board for 2 weeks in a row yet kids still copy it down. and every class he will tell you that he has been putting up the same note and yet people will still write it down. He is actually a teacher and an educator. You are a blessing to applewood
A phenomenal human being. A phenomenal educator. He teaches the curriculum - the Curriculum of Life - something the Ministry seems to have forgotten. Mr. McDermott, you are a wonder. Thank you for all your help. You are the reason for my passion and success in education. May God Bless you:)
He never talks about what he should be talking about but his class is always interesting.
One of the best teachers out there! The problem is that people don't seem to be able to grasp how his analogies and lectures reflect the lessons. too bad
Great teacher, nice guy, but tends to get off topic a lot. Quite odd too, but always has something semi-interesting to say
This dude was awesome! He really encourages active teaching with his lectures. Had him 12 years ago and his teachings are still alive today in the real world.
cool teacher but didn't really learn much about economics
Haha the only class you won't fall asleep in. He's confusing most of the time but one of the best no doubt
Good guy, but talks about issues that have nothing to do with the course.
taught a lot about everyday issues and nothing about the course! NOTHING! Failed university Econ. because he didn't prepare us at all!
Great teacher, makes everything enjoyable and interesting. Teaches many more important life skills rather than just the course.
