He's probably the least strictest teacher I've had in my life. He's very chill, barely gets mad, and the fact that he lets you play games from time to time in his class is great. He understands that school can be stressful and he wants you to loosen that tension but at the same time, get some work done as well. I hope to be in his future classes when I continue with computer studies.
I'm sure he was knowledgeable, but you wouldn't know it
MacKinnon was, hands down, my favourite teacher when I went to DO'C, he made going to school worth it for me. The 3 semesters I was able to take his classes, as well as my time in his robotics club, cemented my love for computer science and drove me to study it in university; I'm down to my last few semesters of my BCS, I'm prepping for an MCS, and I hope to eventually earn a PhD in CS, none of which would be possible without MacKinnon's inspirational teaching. Thank you so much Stephen!
One of my favorite teachers as I was at DO'C
Ammmmmmaaaazzziinnnngggg, Best Teacher in DO'C :)
He is so sweet and funny. I wish I was planning to further studies in computers , just to have him as a teacher. Mackinnon comes across as very laid back. Though it seems he doesn't teach you much , he is very helpful and is always willing to explain and give you feedback. I would love to have him a again. :)

Great teacher, helps at anytime, explains with upmost clarity. One of the best teachers ive ever had.
He is a very intelligent teacher but doesn't actually do anything during the class besides sit in his chair with his phone.
MacKinnon. Tech. Tron tourneys. 'Nuff said. Honestly though, a really laid-back guy. Kinda quiet. Extremely helpful.
Best teacher at the school! He's great to go to if you just need to talk to someone, and he knows his programming. All around a great guy! We need more teachers like him.
so so so nice, when I was in HS lent me money so I could get dance tickets since someone had stole my money.. greatest times at Doc in his accounting class
Really carea about the success of his students! Best teacher I've ever had. Could make the dumbest person grasp the most intricate concept. Great guy!
Mr.Mackinnon is the BEST teacher,he is soo nice and helps out a lot,I had him and he always helped me cause I am incapable of doing it myself!way2go MACKINNON!!
THE best teacher ive ever had!!!!!!! Hes the coolest teacher ever!
A very nice and cool teacher, and definately not an eyesore!
Never had him before, never even took computers. but he lets me come in and play computer games, so he rocks!
Good teacher, very flexible, always willing to help and debug your code even if it takes an hour.
He is amazing coach and teacher, he always is lookin out for the best interest of the students, and not himself
this guy is awesome, he plays it cool and very understanding and fun to be taught by, recommended that you take programming!!!
