He is honestly one of my favorite teachers of high school. He's old but still has a passion for teaching even if his instructions are unclear and confusing at times (he sometimes would forget to give our class homework assignments that he gave other classes but that's not exactly a bad thing). He knew I was reading Kerouac so he gave me a CD of an original recording of Kerouac reciting jazz poetry. Such a cool guy who cares for his students

Everyone loves this guy. He really cares about teaching, otherwise he wouldn't have been with us for so many years. You need to work for your grade in the class, but I think even if you had an F you'd still like him! I find he has helped students with writing better than anyone in the school. We really need our writing classes back! Stupid budget cuts!

Mr. Corcoran is one of the best teachers I have had. He genuinly cares about learning and not just doling out tests. He loves to talk so give him any subject and he could tell you stories all hour.

Class of 2006. He is the best teacher WBHS has to offer! It is upsetting seeing some students that take his class and not take advantage of the knowledge he has. Amazing stories and personality!

Corcoran is amazing. I took his class two years in a row and wish I could take it again. I was not a fan of High School but he made my day enjoyable.

Class of '91, I took World Lit. class and he was the best teacher I had in WBHS! College-level range of material, and a great inspiring personality. Wish I could go back and take his class over again!

Corcoran is one of the best english teachers in the school. His class is good in understanding stories and books, but not so much in writing essays. Go with Palizzi on that.

Mr. Corcoran was my favorite english teacher in high school. I took his Points of View class and I loved the way the class was structured and how you had to think. He's great.

Mr. Corcoran is easy and "cool", but if you want a college-level English prep class, he's probably not the best. His stories are funny and he's always a hit with the students.
