Mr. Townsend is an incredible educator who influenced me beyond the scope of my ancient history lessons with him. He instills an intellectual curiosity in his students that is so rare among other teachers. Yes, he has high expectations, but these are founded on the belief he has in his students. The man is head and shoulders better than many university level educators, and I feel truly privileged to have had the benefit of his tutelage.

Very educated man, knows what he is talking about seeing that he probably has been teaching the same stuff since 1920. Don't get caught yawning in his class and what ever you do, do not play games in his class!!!!!
Don't be scared of him, he means well (he is good one on one)

Excellent teacher. Comes off as strict, but is actually a great teacher and can be funny when he wants to be. Despite all the negative reviews, he really is a great teacher. You'll respect the hard marking and strict teaching in the future when your grades improve. Great man and great teacher.

All these comments about him treating people "inferiorly" are ridiculous. He treats students as they are, which is students. Its a superior/subordinate relationship and for pissy parents to get all upset that he isn't treating their child as an equal is honestly laughable. I had him as a teacher for my last two years of high school; he is a truly excellent teacher in every sense.

Ancient history and English in final years. Great teacher and clearly on top of his stuff. He does run a tight ship but only because he expects the best. The reason he is strict towards some students

He is a good teacher, can be very strict at times. He is very knowledgable. Treats students as inferiors, not as equals, can be extremely cynical. Overall good teacher, needs to work on his attitude.
