Thanks Collin. Do you know who are the best teachers for Chem, Spec and English (I just want to know who to put on my preferences as teachers for these subject)

Thanks Again


Chemistry: Jacinta or Byron, IMO (they are very different styles, if you prefer the funny relaxed woman, choose Jacinta. If you prefer the hard-line authoritarian British, goto Byron. They both have interesting things to say, but if you cannot stand a TSFX class without breaks, don't goto Byron -- he won't have breaks in his classes.)

Specialist: Try to get Charles Coleiro (spelling? ask enwiabe, he teaches at his school!) Otherwise, try get Chris Ireson (if he still teaches). No one else there really stands out, I think.

For English, I don't know?

lol... Roger Centofanti ... i dont know where he wroks now, but he taught me unit 1 and 2 physics.

Lol, when we were learning about capacitors... he brought one of those balls things in ... and electrocuted himself fro the sake of education ... like... badly lol :P .. like standing on a plastic chair holding it until he was really really negatively charged, and then puttnig his foot out towards the metal table.

it was brilliant.

Thats devotion for ya!


Lol, my yr11 teacher got me 2 electrocute myself XD
It was 1 of those static ball thingys that makes all ur hair stand on end. I have long hair and I wore it out that day, so him and the student teacher thort that'd b a bit of fun, lol...

Someone revealed my love-life to Jacinta Fox, and she thought it was cute that people still wrote those sort of HS-ish sort of messages on whiteboards/slides during the breaks :-[

Charles was semester 1, and everyone was much louder than me in his class. Jacinta's class was different, because I knew everyone in that class.

I'm lucky to say I was in her actual day-school class, and dare I say it, this year I think I was reputedly the best in her class  ;)
In our school we also have the contrast between the two chem teachers. One's more disciplinarian, yr11 co-ordinator after all, while fox is more fun. LOL - she fears the other chem teacher as well as that teacher's sister, who happens to be an ace methods/spesh teacher and uni maths helper.

Who is the best physics teacher at TSFX?

Geoff Davies.
coblin...how could u possible reckon he's the best? he teaches at my school, and he has absolutely no class control, he doesn't cover the correct material (and not to mention, is very slow at covering said material), and, whilst being a friendly guy, doesn't seem to have much passion for the subjects (especially when he teaches chem and bio). he must put on a decent facade at TSFX...
