I started out the year hating him completely and now I miss him. He's extremely concerned with the why and where did you get that from, and can be funny in a mean way. Overall an excellent teacher.
He was hard but an excellent teacher. Make sure to do the homework.
most amazing teacher i've ever had. definitely one of ignatius' best. he's hard, but you will never learn more math in one year than if you have mr connelly. and he's the greatest guy ever.
Prepares you extremely well...I don't know about the 'liberal' label he seems to have gotten, he is a native New Yorker but a midwestern for quite a while.
He's a scary guy, esp at first, but a wicked good teacher.Learn from him
Libral??? but definitely the greatest history teacher in the world and yes, do go to him for extra help and talk with him after class. It really works.
You will love having Mr. Connelly if you accept that he is tough. He warms up to students who seek outside help with him. And he is a great teacher!
