Hates foreigners coming into this country. Made students cram [after throwing 3 pop quizzes in a row]. Denies responsibility by saying that he doesn't remember. Wonder why his legacy is not erased. Any non-white person should be ashamed in having his name associated with the school.

Glad he's gone. Taught math like it was the most important subject in the school, and treated you like dirt if you did not get it right away. No sympathy for what happened to his feet.

Mr. Ryan is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Thanks to him, I now have a keen fascination over leprechauns and all things Irish. It really is such a shame that he retired. Whenever it's St. Patrick's day, I will always remember Mr. Ryan and his box of lucky charms. :)

Mr. Ryan will like you A LOT if you're good at math. He's extremely cool normally, and exceptionally awesome when he's not normal.. His jokes and his stories are very entertaining. Plus, he's an excellent teacher.
