06/09/10 - 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 Show More Show Less

01/27/09 - 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! Show More Show Less

07/29/08 - 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. Show More Show Less

07/12/07 - hated his class!! loved having a student teacher 3rd quarter. after student teacher left, sheehan tried (& failed) to be our friend. i found him annoying & i thought some of his teaching techniques were horrible.. particularly, 1 time that he gave us a pop quiz on material we did for hw 3 days ago, then after the majority of the class failed this quiz, gave us notes on the material in paragraph form. and i'm not one of those kids that hated him cause i failed, i got an A- in his class & still didnt like him Show More Show Less

03/06/07 - 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. Show More Show Less
