Mark Devine

Fine Arts Teacher at Cherry Creek High School

04/17/13 - There's a lot of controversy over Mr. Devine. If you're looking for a fun class to take, I highly recommend taking Beginning Acting. It doesn't take a lot of effort to get an A in, you meet a lot of people and make friends, and you do learn some about acting (more stage directions than technique though). However, he sucks at directing shows and isn't fun after Beginning Acting. My advice: The class is only fun if you want a period out of your day to joke around. Show More Show Less

02/24/13 - I have absolutely no respect for him. He is hands down one of the worst teachers I have ever had. He doesn't respect his students at all. For example, rehearsals never start on time, and then he is hypocritical and gives his students lectures the importance of punctuality. As stated in previous comments, Creek talent is what makes the shows good, not the directing. Show More Show Less

02/19/13 - I hate this man so much. I have zero respect for him and he is one of the worst teachers ever. I have learned nothing about acting in his classes. He is incredibly unfocused and not organized at all. As a director he is okay, but I believe it's the talent of the students that makes the creek shows so great, not his directing. He often shows up around an hour late for rehearsal and does not respect the members of tech at all. Show More Show Less

02/10/13 - This guy is an idiot, I got 100% in his class without even trying, and along the way I learned nothing. As a matter of fact, Mr. Divine made me lose my enthusiasm for acting, and his class was a joke. Take this class only for a FA credit, it's useless otherwise. Show More Show Less

06/06/12 - I took beginning acting and intermediate with Mr. Devine and he is a super nice guy! He’s a great actor and I think he works really hard to give everyone lots of chances to direct and act. The shows he puts on are great! Mr. Devine made me really want to learn more about acting and I love taking his classes. Don’t be mad at him just because you don’t get the part you want in a play.

05/13/12 - He has no idea what he is doing. He does not plan ahead, relies on the students to carry the class and talks about nothing the entire class period. He teaches nothing about acting and though I love acting I have learned nothing from him. I would tell people to take beginning acting for FA credit or go through to advanced acting if you love acting so you can work with student directors-who know more than him. He is an imbecile and still thinks he is the best teacher, which he is not! Show More Show Less
