Spends most of his time eating rather than teaching (that's when he turns up to class) he shouts at people for no reason he wasn't even here to tell us about what are exam was going to be and then he wasn't there for the exam and shouted at all of us when we dint do well

This has to be the worst teacher I have come across in two decades. He spends his time ranting at the pupils and not enough time teaching. Oh and reading from the textbook does not constitute good teaching practice! He also rants to parents how they should complain about the examination board. Get over it and teach what is on the curriculum for dear sakes.

He never turns up for class on time and when he does shouts at the class for not turning up on time. He spends most of the time ranting about the music department, I got through year 9 tech by past knowledge from a different teacher

When you're in the junior school, he's really intimidating and hard to have as a teacher... But once you make the transition to the senior school, you realise that he's just being himself and can have a laugh (unlike a lot of otber teahers). Also, not many people notice, but the guy is really knowledgeable in his field.

Terrible teacher. So lazy, and doesn't bother with anything (teaching included). People say he is ok when you get used to his 'ways', but I disagree.

i think mr dermott does not care about the school pupils and he does the very least on the grounds of helping the pupils.

Seems to hate the aspect of teaching. When you don't do well in your exams he is 'shocked'. Hates pupils who ask questions, however, he can be funny when he rages.
