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.)

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.

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.
