A good teacher if you are doing the right thing, but he gets pretty angry at the tiniest of things

He can sometimes lose his temper at minor things, but as long as you follow his rules and respect him, he'll respect you back.

I unfortunately encountered Colin Stead in engineering class. He has a terrible distrust of students, he is unreasonably strict and his teaching abilities are questionable. His competency is questionable and some of his acts are serious enough to be a discipline issue. He will not give any students his email address for an unacceptable reason, and then puts all his faith in the bug-ridden Moodle freeware which is notorious for deleting assignments. He has avoided the Moodle issue entirely.

He knows his stuff, but then he assumes that you know it as well. Has unreasonable standards for assignments, and thinks that everyone should be amazing at computers without him having to teach us anything. Assumes that I'm some sort of computer whiz just for being in one of his senior classes, which means he doesn't teach very well at all.

Had him back in 93. He is completely incapable of inspiring students. Some of the year 9 students in the class knew more about programming than him. Learn programming by yourself instead. :) Stead sux
