Mr. Gowan was my teacher in 9th grade for English/Literature in 1980-81. I am 51 years old,& attended a showing of "Hamlet" last night at a local theater. What I knew in 1980 about Mr. Gowan's teaching-that his enthusiasm for Shakespeare was such a gift to his students-came back to me as I took in this story for the first time,36 years after being in his class. A very belated thank you, Mr. Gowan, for the gift of your love for literature & beautiful way of sharing Shakespeare with your students.
Mr.Gowan is a great guy. He teaches the curriculum but also teaches about life and shares past experiences. Although he sometimes has freak outs, he's an overall great guy. I would recommend any of his classes to anyone.
The best man ever
I love love love love LOVE Mr Gowan! He was my teacher for Creative Writing 1 when I was a freshmen last year. He's funny, witty, and his class vibe is cool. He always is playing music of different cultures, sharing life stories, and exposing us to new things. He is one of the greatest teachers ive ever had.
He was the best and so were his sea chanties
Love him. He's a fantastic teacher and he made me enjoy class so much.
Has some faults about him, but his classes are easy if you do the work, and he's a great guy.
Creative writing 1 and 2 and shakespeare on stage were amond the best classes ive ever taken
He can barly laugh and his tests are beyond impossibility
Shakespeare was cool, almost impossible to get over a 95 unless it's a test. Otherwise, cool, loud guy.
He is on of the reasons I am going into the profession I am. What a brilliant teacher and an awesome human being.
best teacher ever. had him twice and they were my favorite both times. he has a hold over his students that make them want to learn, at least thats how i saw it
The best teacher I have ever had-has a lot of energy & really cares about his students. You actually have to work in his class but it is in no way a chore
Mr. Gowan is the best teacher that I have ever had and I am now a graduate student. He is just an awesome guy to make the learning environment that much better
I never had Gowan as a teacher just as a basketball coach but hes really nice, LOUD, but fun. His play acts are great. He gets you into what you are learning.
i had mr.gowan for three years and he is by far the best teacher.. he makes you think and he actually teacher but makes you want to learn in the same
VERY amazing teacher, makes each student feel special and takes extra care to get to know you personally. Take acting Shakespeare
great teacher if you want to learn english. Be sure to take acting shakesphere class.
Mr. Gowan has been my favorite English teacher. I will never forget the ways he has touched my life. I thank him for introducing me to Shakespeare and for a great four years.
Quite possibly the only English teacher that I have ever had to make grammar easy and fun.
