Mr. Daly goes above and beyond. Academics-wise, he gives a ton of work (in 9th grade honors, it was 11 essays plus exam versus Ms. Christian's class's 4 or so). But having to write all these essays improves our writing! Mr. Daly makes an effort to get kids involved and interested in English and reading. And, as people before said, he's a great man; he's always joking around, but he seems to really care about all of his students. Do yourself a favor and take one (or all) of his classes.
I took an elective course with Mr. Daly. He is a very good teacher who improved my writing. He was very knowledgeable about the material and he offered a lot of extra credit opportunities. You can't have a true dwight experience without taking one of his classes.
O MIGHTY ONE... That sums it up pretty well. Fred Daly is just too fabulous. He's definitely a hard grader and expects a lot from his students, but he is also such an understanding and compassionate teacher (and person for that matter). My English skills have improved so much this year, and Mr. Daly seems to genuinely care about his students. I can't wait to take another one of his classes!
Amazing. He never gets mad and is funny
I've had Mr. Daly my first and third year at Dwight and, in my opinion, he is the best teacher here. Even though his classes include a very heavy workload (nothing even comparable to Frankel), my ability to think and take risks as a writer have improved considerably. He is very kind, funny, and insightful in class, and he encourages his students to be relaxed about grades. He also offers extra credit, which I am thankful for because it allowed me to experience more books.
Mr. Daly is hands down the best teacher at Dwight-Englewood. He's knowledgeable, caring about his students, and one is guaranteed to learn in his class. I always felt if I had an issue -- either academic or personal -- that I could go to him. He's a trusting individual, and is a prime example of what gives Dwight its history for great teachers.
Mr. Daly knows everything. I have never met a more intelligent and emphatic English teacher in my entire life.
He's the man, but he's a red sox fan... Daly is awesome
I love him to death, but a paper due the day before spring break?
Fantastic teacher. Very clear, very easy to work with
omg i havent even had him but i've met him and he is awesome!!!
Best English teacher I've ever had. Tough grader, but he teaches you a lot.
One of the school's greatest teachers. With his humor and knowledge of the material, he makes me want to go to class every day. A truly great man.
Mr. Daly rocks! He'll make a joke about every other sentence, and he actually made me want to write in english. He's motivating and if you don't always get something in on time, he's understanding.
Mr. Daly is a great teacher! I don't know who these people are who are calling him boring, but they're nuts.
Mr.Daly is the man! I really enjoyed english with him, it was a great experience that really changed the way I thought about the language. thanks mr. daly
great teacher who really cares about students... can get boring though, but usually just because he teaches boring stuff. quite lenient
Mr. Daly is a fair and very good teacher. he made Latin enjoyable and really cared about his students.
