Mr Norrie is an awesome teacher. He kept us engaged in his class anddes is pretty fun to talk to. He appreciates puns as well X). Mr Norrie can be a tad scary when he's mad but that isn't often. Also, don't talk loudly to your friends too often or he will snap. Anywho, I would love him to teach me again!

His hilarious and often sarcastic humour and wit can have a sharp edge at times, but honestly it's all in good taste and if it's against you, you probably deserved it (I know I did).
He knows the course well, is an excellent teacher, kids improve their ability well under him.

Summarises clearly and knows how to keep a class focused. He is not so much easy-going, and is fairly mean but great to learn from, and certainly knows what he's talking about. My scores have greatly improved since I've had him as a teacher. Chemistry could only be more fun if he dropped the scary side a little.

A quirky man, however he needs to understand that ice sculptures will become liquid-water eventually anyway, and that chipping or using methods to melt it by such actions as touching it many times, only speeds up that process.

Should stop organizing river cruises and "Frozen wonderland" balls, and realize that school is for learning, and that socializing can be done outside of it. He also needs to refocus on physics- chemistry is distracting him.

Once he heard our maths teacher saying we should be working on either the sin or cosine rule ONLY; he said as a punchline: 'Is there a tAN rule? Or is that just not lying in the sun to much!' *dadumch
