He is an expert on American history and has a strange passion for Lyndon B Johnson. In general he's pretty chill and a good teacher who makes History a lot more fun than it actually is.
His doppelganger is Mr Stringer, who apparently is quite chuffed by this comparison. Some classes speculate that his first name is also in fact Pete, therefore making his name Pete Peat and that the first initial of ‘R’ on his email is just a cover.
Mr P: stop talking or you'll be sat here on friday lunch doing lines
Student: What type of lines though…?
Mr P: I swear your honour I meant writing
“Animal Farm… that book is fantastic.”
“It's difficult to write with a pen, ok?”
“Any other questions other than when you lose your first child to the Holocaust Education Trust?”
”My dog’s fine thanks for asking… I mean he just threw up a pig’s ear.”
”Is she on strictly come dancing? Or is it just me who watches it?”
“We'll get going in a minute when everyone else rocks up.” “Thanks everybody for rock-in' up.”
“Do you know how to shut up?”
“The only other words that have come out of your mouth today are ‘aegakdhawjalsh’.”
Mr Peat - "Do you enjoy having pens thrown at you?"
Student - “Well, sir, it happens enough at break time, so I'm actually quite used to it.”
Mr Peat - blinks “Just shut up."
