Mr Jacobs was a fantastic teacher.
mr jacobs was my history teacher during my time at Balerno high (91-95). I consider him to be one of the best teachers at the school. I was classed as a foundation level student and at times unteachable, however the one class i enjoyed the most was Mr Jacobs history classes. The way he taught his students was inspiring. i remember the class in great debate regarding many events in history such as ww2, highland clearances, roman empire, and beyond. I LOVED IT and i wanted to learn in his class.)
Okaay yes Mr Jacobs isnt a very exciting teacher, yes he is boring, yes we dont like his classes, yes his teaching is unclear yes he doesnt always know alot about the course BUT he does the job! He's
Mr Jacobs was a fair, kind teacher. Decades on he's still sticking it out - that proves he's a legend!
Seems to enjoy just getting by, has a very poor understanding of the actual course, and has no talent for sparking imaginations.
only likes the preps, doesnt care for anyone else. boring teacher
He is worse than ever now he has come back nobody learns a thing
Best teacher at Balerno. Modern Studies 6th year kept me at the place!
Jake used to take a ripping from us all, i agree that he only knew half the class .. the bad ones! haha
He's ok but now he's been mugged and won't come back for ages!!!!!
An absolute legend! can't teach but an auwsome sense of humour. rock on Mr J!
not 2 bad. but only knows half the class mainly the ones that don't behave. but can still have a laugh
Hilarious and with a good sense of homour. He put up with some nonsense, the poor soul. But he tended to get a lot of respect.
This man is a teaching God, one of the funniest human beings I have ever met.
hes rool cool and a very good person .he always helps you when u dont understand and makes it easir.
A good teacher. He explains the work .He understands how to get you to learn and be funny at the same time .He made me want to do history.
loved him, fantastic teacher, helped me with alot. So he's not the best teacher & some may think hes a walk over,but i found his way of teaching less harsh that others..which ment i took much more in!
He's a cool, laid back guy. Not the best teacher in the world, but certainly not the worst!
A really nice bloke seems to get a hard time from his head of department in the past. only had him as teacher for a few months.
