Mr. D was more than your average teacher. To me he was my mentor, my coach, my friend, a second father. I would not be the man I am today if it wasn't for this man. He treated me like a son and instilled me with confidence and courage something I didn't have growing up. Grade 7 and 8 were the best years of my life thanks to him. Taught me along with my 6 brothers and now a life long coach, mentor, and friend. Love you lots Mr. Desclouds.
P.s. I was the best volleyball player during that year
Mr. D is genuinely a nice person, even if you don't talk to him he still respects. I have seen him around the school but never talked much, but he always says 'Hi dear!' Or something sweet. You're the best!!!
Awesome guy. Easy to see why the gym is named after him.
I met him after he retired as a teacher and I can tell that he is a genuine person who respects the sport of volleyball and he will never be forgotten. Mr. D, you have lived an amazing life and did nothing but good things for glashan and its community. -Kyi Lin Aung
One of the best teachers the city of Ottawa will ever have! A great leader and role model. A
Best teacher I've ever had, very inspiring and great teacher
I had Mr Desclouds as a teacher more than 30 years ago. He was a fantastic teacher who really related to the kids. I learned so much about sports from him and was so proud to be on the volleyball, football and basketball teams... I used to live right across the street from the old school....what a blast. Have a fantastic retirement. Frank Caruso

Not true at all he was a nice respectful man who was an idol for all
In terms of legacy and life lessons, Mr Desclouds was probably the best teacher I had between kindergarten and high school - that was 20 years ago. Good luck in retirement.
