I graduated in 2003 and Mr. Cleary is the only teacher I believe I learned anything from. Some people don't understand him sometimes because his humor is a little...well...actual? I was one of maybe 3 people who participated in class. That was just because no one else seemed to care. I enjoyed every day of his class. Mr. Cleary kept me interested in everything he taught.

really interesting, if you aren't a thinker, don't take any of his classes, he will make you think, he has a real dry sense of humor, so slow people wont enjoy his class. easy to talk to, if he likes you

Definitely great at public speaking and literature/philosophy. Very laid-back. Sometimes boring if you are shy, but it's comfortable to be in his class. Wouldn't say I learned a lot, but he definitely knows a lot.

He is pretentious although you probably won't realize it if you're mindless like half of the students who walk into his class room and instead you'll see him as generally likeable.

If there is one teacher that I will remember during my four years at Watchung Hills it will be Mr. Cleary. Brilliant, compassionate, and thought provoking are just a few words to describe him.

Cleary is an amazing teacher who respects his students as people, not children. He is very crypic in his communication, but leads students to be independant thinkers.

Cleary gets a bad rap because must high school kids are not sophisticated enough to get him. I appreciated him a lot then, and love him even more now. Give the guy a chance because he's actually got a lot to teach.

Mr. Cleary's Philo class was a waste of time. All he did was rant about his life. There was maybe half a real class in the whole semester. So boring.

Mr. Cleary is one interesting individual. He is extremely analytical, but then again he is a philosophy teacher.

I had him back in 95-96. This is one of the few teachers that actually had an impact on my life. He doesn't teach out of the book, he teaches about life.

Cleary was a really fun teacher back in 1995. He would tell us how he used to work on a fishing boat in Alaska.

Cleary is a god amongst men...though I wonder if he wouldn't be better off as a university professor. And he doesn't teach geography.
