Unquestionably the most gifted teacher I ever came across. I ended up chosing a career path unrelated to physics, but I still think about Jim and his classes often. More than physics, he taught us how to think for ourselves. Thanks Jim. Hells bells.
A wonder. My head hurts just thinking of how anybody could be such an amazing teacher. The whole class bonds for this bizaare interest in physics,and when it comes down to work we show real motivation
his one liners are the best. makes the subject bearable while still teaching it. lord.
Abosulte Legend makes physics and enjoyable class and easier than what i hear other teachers make it. Practical pretty much every week, the best fun last 2 periods on a Friday
always takes jokes too far and then like rambles on without saying nething
really good, has helped me loads, but shud give better notes.
absolute legend he makes physics fun and is has the most interestin stories
Biggest hero in the world. You actually could not get a better teacher. Physics has been such a great subject for the past two years.
defeinitely deserves to be principle after sister ursula he's an amazing teacher and he has really goo stories and the practicles he does make you understand them more. i better get him fo r my GCSEs
He stood in for one of my lesson when doherty was off - was the only physics lesson I ever understood - what a legend!
Changed my life 20 yrs ago. Best teacher during my time in Rathmore. Now earning £200k p.a and it all started in the "new" physics labs "underneath the arches" with Woodsy. What a star!
Had him 10yrs ago for A-level physics. His classes and stories were both interesting and hilarious. Very helpful/thoughtful both academically and on a personal level. Great for careers advice. This guy should be principal. Best teacher I ever had.
Likeable man, really liked him, and although he neve let it show he liked me too! once shouted at a guy in our class cause he couldn't draw a circle, funniest moment ever!
Great man, cares about students, not just grades. Wish there were more like him!
Great guy, very funny. I went back to the school for work experience and he was a top man, very friendly, very talkative a good teacher to have.
Doesnt make the class interesting enough. Thought he was very boring.
Absolute legend. Made GCSE Physics interesting, I actually enjoyed going to his class. Felt bad about not having my homework done. Loved his stories. Would have liked to do Physics for AS but didn't get the grades. Fabulous careers teacher. He's the reason I decided to do psycology next year. Extremely helpful.
I had the good fortune of being in Mr Woods' class right through from the first day of school through to the end of my A-Level Physics. While he maintained discipline, he was universally liked (a feat that few teachers manage). An inspiration, and I fully attribute the PhD that I now hold to his advice.....wish there were more teachers like him.
Im 3rd yr ni n this is my first yr havin him..onli been in 1 of his classes so far but ther ageg! You can easily learn physics casue he just makes the lessons unforgettable! He's tells us really random stories that have nothin 2 do with physics! Great one Liners!! GO ON WOODSY!!!
Top man - should be V.P. Has a first in physics, but alas a bit weak on the old RE stuff!
WOOD-SEEEEEEEEEEEEY!!!! WOOOOOOD-SEEEEEY!!! Yeah a bit of Rathmore legend ould woodsey. He was always skulking around badgers hill looking for smokers. Bless him. Yeah a good teacher. Not up there with Henry McNally (sociology teacher and genius) but not a bad bloke all the same.
He is very funny and keeps you intersted in Physics. Not because of the subject, but because of his stories/jokes. Excellent and useful revision techniques.
Woodey is a legend, his notes are really confusing if your not in his class, but you end up learning everything and doing half the writing. His stories are the best.
He is just such a sound guy and a great teacher, if u need any help you get it and his notes r good, also the only teacher who on a friday afternoon who will tell you about the nice bottle of wine sitting in his fridge at home for after school, lol
He's funny at times but hisnotes are worrying...I think I'm failing my GCSE's
Good teacher, many of his lessons have stood by me to this day.
loved his bit of paper he used to always wave about in his hand
Mr one lung, his careers advice got me my EXAMSSSSSS
So funny but doens't take any nonsense, class is always fun but watch out, he can be very sarcastic,taught well and wore converse when he was a teenager
always walks about waving a piece of rolledup paper in his hand legend. EXXXCCCUSSEE MMEEEE. ONE LUNG LIFE SAVER
I liked Jim Woods. Never let the anti-smoking lobby get him down. Really nice guy. Taught me well.
He blew himself across his garage one day: Legend. Great at careers advice, very helpful and such a good teacher! Always had amazing craic in his class!
Jim "which one of you characters thinks my name is woodsy?" Woods. Brilliant guy.Great one liners and great teacher.
The only class i actuali enjoy listening in!his stories r hilarious and the guy really helps u relate things to ever day life!
The only teacher who asked how I was getting on after I went to college. Most interesting story-teller ever but has gotta lose the "MRI tale"
