Worse teacher I had at this school. If you don't kiss up to him he won't like you. Self centered and egotistical and not the least bit respectful although he thinks he deserves ultimate respect. Borin

I have never been more bored or more turned off by a teacher. Personality of a rock but and attitude to match. Can't wait to be done with him and his obnoxious personality.

Just hope you don't get him more than once, it is miserable enough to have him once.Seems he became a teacher because it was the only place he could control lives,not because he wanted to educate kids

Absolutely the worst teacher I had at that school. I don't know why they keep him.Most of the history teachers are pretty cool and interesting and you learn a lot, not him. Unfriendly and unhelpful.

Not a good teacher. Completely tore apart an excellent paper because of its conservative tendencies. He only sees one side of the story and doesn't know what things are like in the real world. Bad

I disagree. I did hear that he was tough but I found him to be a good teacher. Not a bad guy either.

I don't know how anyone could say this guy is ok. He was the bane of my existence and was the most uninspiring teacher I had while there. Clearly the worst history teacher there.Also mean.

Seriously, he's not as bad as what some of these others said. Can be tough at times but overall he's okay.

Guy has a huge ego and if you play up to it, he will like you and give you a break. If you don't play up to it, he will give you a hard time.Does the same with baseball. Awful coach and teacher.

Arrogant, yes and can be mean at times. Seems not to like a lot kids. Hard to talk to or get help from. Needs to lighten up some.No one likes him as a coach either.

Very boring and not a good teacher at all. He's very arrogant. Class isn't too tough, but has way too many pop quizzes. Very inflexible when it comes to his mistakes.

Agree with everyone else, he's boring, mean and unbending, which would be tolerable if he was a good teacher, but I am learning nothing. Heard he's the same kind of coach, so lucky I don't play bb.

One of the worst teachers at the school. He is too arrogant to be helpful and tries to be an authoritarian and tough guy when its inappropriate. He just doesn't get it. Boring and mean.

Not a good guy or good teacher. You learn nothing, he is not helpful and is, as everyone else said, really boring. No one likes him.

I have mixed feelings towards Mr. Kelly. You can tell he really wants to help you learn but at the same time the class is really boring and repetitive. Sorry...
