Mr. Connolly is probably one of the nicest if not the nicest teacher in the school! Always there after school for help, and always cracking jokes. However, Mr. Connolly, is very confusing, and hard to learn from. This makes tests a bit hard.

Great guy; genuinely cares about his students succeeding, very dedicated, and knows A LOT about biology. Without a doubt the funniest teacher I've ever had. That being said, he really needs to work on teaching the material.

Mr. Connolly knows a great deal of information about his subject matter. He also has no problem going into great detail about seemingly unsophisticated topics. Contrary to what some people have said, he *does* in fact teach the material. However, it is your job to separate the meaningless info from the important stuff. It's wise to take notes, especially when he previews upcoming tests and quizzes with the class. Lastly, READ THE CHAPTER AND CHECK OUT THE LINKS HE POSTS ONLINE.

One of the funniest and nicest guys i know. His class is fun but the material is difficult to follow in between the random videos and jokes he cracks. Love him as a person but not the best teacher.

Wicked nice and friendly but he simply doesn't teach. He spends the last 15 minutes of every day putting funny videos on the Smartboard. His tests are impossible because he doesn't really teach us....

Dedicated teacher, watches out for his students & helps them. His "drawn-out answers" are detailed if you listen, and he preps you for college by showing you how to teach yourself.

leaves the teaching/learning up to the student. to really learn the stuff u need to teach yourself. if u ask him a question, expect a super long drawn-out answer.
