Class of 1979. The first year Mr. McGrath taught at KHS. He is an "icon". Best English teacher ever. In fact, my brother in law was coached by him when he attended a private school in the 70's. We all loved his teaching style too. Glad to know he is still teaching at KHS in 2016. Thank you Mr. McGrath!
Even after making it through university, I still believe Frank McGrath is the best teacher I've ever had. I learned more from him in one year than I ever did in all four years of college English. You changed my life, sir. I will never be able to properly thank you for that. -Lorna Y (Kempsville High, Class of 2007)
Honours English 12 is my favourite class this year. :)
I am taking his class now. Not surprisingly, he is one of my idols. Before you begin to think to yourself, hopefully, if you already haven't, "this student is loco iodolizing his high school teacher," let me explain. Because he is wise, incomparably merciful to his students, and laugh-out-loud witty, I look up to him. I also admire him due to his morals, he and I both Christians. He's not a phony and cares about whom he teaches.
excellent teacher, is not nitpicky like many english teachers. Also, we read some excellent stories in his class, he also actually emphasizes skill in writing, instead of giving reading quizzes alot.
I really like him although I resent the fact that he doesnt assign essay tests until the day before they are due. But i love him all the same!
Some people dont like him, but it is only the people who defy everything, he is great
had him 20 years ago...very cool and great teacher...great books we read!!! He made reading fun!
