he was the BEST teacher you can ever have. it sucked that he retired :( but he did teach really well and he definitly not boring. he was my faveorite teacher :) and if mr. rourke is reading this right now, everone misses you!!!! come back!!!
Mr. Rourke was an amazing teacher!! The day he left which was this year before winter break, was the saddest day for the 8th grade. The 8th grade including myself ( I am an 8th grader as well). Not a eye was dry when we were saying good bye. My Class had him Friday morning first period when he gave us the news. He started off with, I don't know how to tell you this.. but this will be my last day in school. From the next sentence on the entire class was in tears. We didnt handle it well. Love u !
he was an amazing teacher. he was loved by everyone he had. he was soo helpful and was a great man it was sad he had to leave us i loved him he was the best teacher at 209. we alll loved him the class of 2012 will shore miss him
I had him in 2006 to 2007 He is a great guy He was so legit im a freshy in college
Mr.Rourke is the Michael Jackson of teaching Social Studies. He gives amazing advice. Not just on passing tests, but also on LIFE. Listen to him. It will help you so much more than possibly any therap
Used to sleep during the summer at his class..a really great teacher but with boring notes to take at times.
mr rourke is fair. he talks alot, but it works in the long run. it sticks in ur head
He gives really good advice. I have him now. He is kind of boring at times, but he cares about everyone.
he is wonderful! he really inspires kids in my class (including me) to do good and stuff. he's also very funny and kind. I LOVE HIS CLASS!!! :D
His class is like a safety/check point between your classes. In his class, you take a nap and rejunuvate your energy for the classes ahead. Don't fret; his tests are pushovers, anyway.
he's mad cool he gave lots of good advice Mr. Rourke is a ery wise and intellegent man.
Mr. Rourke, awsome teacher !! very smart guy He knows what hes talking about!
i thnk his class is BORING! most of my class feels like falling asleep in social studies, but he's a good teacher anyway
some times hes just soo boring but really hes actually the only teacher that really cares
Very easy tests. Very easy classwork. Very few and easy homework. He can be boring sometimes though because he never takes a break while teaching except when he goes off-topic on the subject.
he has to be my favorite teacher because his life lessons were much more useful than his work and whether he knows that or not, he really was a big help for me
He is a great teacher and when he yells he only does it to teach u a lesson and to show that he cares!
mr. rourke is the best i think he should be president
hes okay and coll but when he talks it bores my brains out
He is a great homeroom teacher and at times can be very funny. =] I look forward to this school year with him.
Wow he is the BEST!!! his life lessons were a great help to me when i went to high school. I never had a teacher who actually cared about his students so much from inside.
Mr.Rourke is a good social studies teacher, also a funny one. He's a cool guy.
