Jun 09, 2010 I have had him for two years in a row and I am on the brink of throwing myself off of a bridge. He is a disgrace to all teachers. He imposes his opinions on people and beats around the bush when he is challenged. In his mind, the student who doesn't agree with him is always wrong, though, in most cases, we are right. He gives pointless homework that does not prepare us for AP and his class is so boring. It is officially my nap time. I haven't payed attention in 3 months and I have an A ...somethings Flag Rating

Jan 27, 2009 He's an amazing teacher. Definitely a best i've had in history. Never loved history till I had him, not once, but twice and really enjoyed his class. Surely he gives a lot of notes but they help u prepare for his tests and exams, which you can easily pass as long as you pay attention and take notes. Not very hard and an does not grade harshly either...unlike many others. Doesn't give too much work, compared to others at TG. Very nice, respectful and has a good sense of humor as well. U can learn a lot! Flag Rating

Jul 29, 2008 Sheehan has issues not impressing his political beliefs on his students. Not a great teacher and a bit of a jerk as well. Some teachers are to be loved and learned from, others you must simply endure. Hes is surely the latter. Flag Rating

Mar 06, 2007 You don't really have to pay attention as much as you have to LOOK like you're paying attention. Also, do the work, and you'll get a good grade. Flag Rating

Mar 18, 2005 Abviously people who have rated are the ones who are failing his classes. If you actually paid attention, you would like him. He's the best history teacher. He's awesome! Flag Rating

Jan 06, 2004 Mr. Sheehan is the best teacher ever! He gets his point across. You probably hate him cuz he gives lots of notes, but those are the notes that always help us!:) Flag Rating
