Mr. Despard is THE COOLEST teacher I have ever had. He likes to joke around with his students, I should know because he picked on my sister and a I. He actually makes you try at P.E unlike Mr. Young. editi

Best 8th PE teacher! He didn't make us run a lot and tried to make PE interesting! But he likes to lecture a lot about your health. Hey, at least he cares what will happen to us! Very funny and... COOL!

My favorite teacher out of the 3 years I attended FMS. He actually talked to his students because he wanted to, not because it was part of his job. Out of the 3 male p.e teachers he was by far the best, and he graded you based on how much you tried to do things not on how many pushups or crunches you could do.

Despard was probably my favorite teacher at foothills. He was cooler than Mr. Young, funnier, and just all around better. He was cool towards me and my friend, and helped whenever possible. Best P.E. teacher, and best digital photography teacher (although that aint sayin much).

Average teacher. Doesn't know the least bit about computers (even though he is our school's tech). His class is moderately hard and we do lots of exercise.
