04/06/12 - He definitely had control of his classes. I remember that he won a lot of awards, and he deserved them. He never missed school and made sure we learned grammar and literature. So many teachers were there just for the paycheck, but that did not describe him. Mr. McUmar was at most of our extracurricular functions, dancing at the GAA formal with us and singing at graduation. He was respectful and kind to us, and that was what he expected of us in return. He was a GREAT teacher. Show More Show Less

03/28/12 - I disagree that Mr. McUmar's classroom was stressful. Probably the only students who were stressed were the ones who didn't care to try or do their work. Mr. McUmar was witty and had a dry sense of humor. He never raised his voice, but his demeanor told us that he demanded respect. He knew his subject matter and tried to transfer that knowledge to his students. He wasn't there to socialize with us, so to say that he lacked social skills is unfair. He worked hard and took his job seriously Show More Show Less
