The guy knows his stuff, but he doesn't really teach much. His classes are project after boring project. I was dreading going to class because I can't stand him as a teacher. Made me hate ss.
He has truly changed my perspective on global issues and opened my mind up extensively. Amazing teacher and person.
One of the best teachers I've ever had. Constitutional Law project was amazing and the AP Gov class really got me interested in politics and current events. You can talk to him about everything and he's always there for you
Mr. Devine is amazing! He's really interesting and really knows what he's talking about. Plus, he has a sorting hat. What's not to love? :D
Take his AP Government class even if you're not into politics. The Constitutional Law Program is so worth it - great preparation for college writing.
Though his quizzes and tests are hard, he is an amazing gov teacher. So experienced, caring, and intelligent! Very willing to help you out in school or have discussions about non-academic things.
I love Mr. Devine! I have him for World Studies and while he isn't easy the assignments are manageable, meaningful, and fun. A genius who has a great connection with his students and genuinely loves his job. A great teacher.
Mr. Devine is a genious! He told us that he's never gotten a B. He's like perfect in every way and he's a great teacher. He loves what he's doing and its great to see him get into a topic. His class is really hard though.
Best teacher at Northside. Knows how to make difficult ideas easy to understand.
The best teacher and the best human being. Truly magnificent!
It's obvious that teaching is his passion, and he's really good at it. He's someone that you can always talk to even if it's not school related.
Cool and funny and really knows his stuff. He's willing to help even if you're not in his class anymore and it's fun to have a conversation with him about things not school related too.
An amazing teacher, i have learned so much from his class. His opinions and lectures in gov show his many years of experience. Tests and quizzes are sometimes hard though.
Couldnt have asked for a better World Studies teacher. He's one of the most intelligent men i know. Props Mr.Devine.
he's a great guy and gov isnt that hard until the 4th quarter
i love mr devine! he is definitely the best teacher at northside
It's no coincidence that he is ranked extremely high here. Wonderful teacher and very helpful teacher who always seems to be availiable.
Mr. Devine is probably one of the most successful teachers at NCP. He's fascinating to listen to, very supportive, enriching, refuses to be a "by-the-book" teacher; he's one to step out of the regular boundaries of teaching.
He's the best teacher I've had at Northside. He was always available outside of class. Funny and smart. Really wants his students to do well.
hes a really good teacher, but you have to try in his classes.
Mr. Devine is the best teacher I've had at Northside. He's clear about assignments, is ready to help, is responsive, and supportive. He's funny and his class doesn't get boring. You have to work really hard in his class, but it's still awesome ;-)
Mr. Devine is probably my favorite teacher at Northside. He;s extremely caring, funny, and very very smart!!
he's a great teacher because he really made us think
i think he is one of the best teachers in school.he introduced new creative ideas which made me understand history better.very helpful
Congrats on the Golden Apple, Mr. D! Don't know anyone who deserved it more. Best Teacher Ever.
greatest teacher i never had but wish i had. run for president.
Mr. Devine is a very effective teacher, and a great person. His class requires more than any other I've had, but I actually look forward to class.
Mr. Devine, you helped me to see possibilities in my learning that I could have not imagined! Thanks. You are the greatest!
I love his teaching even though he might be the hardest teacher in the school. I love his consumer ed. class.He is very clear and very helpful teacher in school
Mr. Devine is an incredible teacher with a strong knowledge of his subject and a keen interest in the success of his students. An amazing guy.
Really cool teacher... kinda hard tho but you learn a lot
He's a nice guy, gives too much work, and expects too much of his students. But overall he's a caring hardworking guy. Good luck freshman...
Really nice guy, really tough teacher. High expectations, wonderful at his job. Clear, helpful, and I've learned a lot. Do Not Miss Assignments.
Altough he's pretty hard when it comes to work, he's a really cool guy and a good teacher to have.
He is helpful. He is really hard and probably the hardest teacher in the Social Science department
Great teacher, absolutely brilliant man, hard working, makes us think. Keep it up!
The hardest-working teacher at Northside. Extremely friendly. Interesting topics -- he doesn't just focus on the AP test. AP Gov is the hardest/best class at NS
He is a cool teacher but he is really hard when it comes to giving homework and tests.
By far the best teacher I had in high school. Definitly the best teacher at Northside.
Best teacher I ever could have hoped to have in a Social Science class during High School
