Dr. Connolly is a very good teacher. The negative reviews are just from students who are lazy and do not put the required effort into studying and preparing for exams. Anyway, it's an easy class.

I don't even know where to begin Dr.Connolly is a very smart individual but he is socially awkward and can not teach he would be great in a research setting but not in a classroom. You will end up teaching yourself everything his idea of making you do a chapter outline each week is prehistoric. His class is very distracting because kids mess with him all day he has no idea he gives detentions randomly so if he gives you a detention you don't honestly think you deserve tell the dean of men.

The most unintelligent teacher
I really question how he has a job!
It's not even 1/3 thru the school year and I can't wait till I'm done with him
He does not teach
He's boring
He uses power points made from the text book and makes us copy it down and does a horrific job explaining it!
Step it up with your Biology Dept. SHP

one of the funniest teachers ever especially when he starts talking about his relationship with his dog charlie and diannna ross' entire family. he constantly tweets at everybody remotely close to dianna ross but over all he is a great person.

Great teacher, kids will make fun of him or impersonate him, but he is a genuine heartfelt guy. Loved his class. Class was hard, but if you pay attention and do the homework you will defiantly get an A. One of my favorite teachers in the school.

Great guy - kids will rip on him/mock him but he just smiles or ignores it. If you have Dcon expect half of your sophomore year to consist of kids making dconn jokes/impersonations in the hallways. Do all the homework and you will get an A. Very helpful and willing to work with you, rounds up grades usually, projects/hw inflates your grade.

Dr. C may be a little different, but he knows his stuff and is a great teacher. As long as you copy the "Overlays" into your notes and "take a look" because "it's in the book" you will do very well.

Mr. Connolly was my favorite science teacher of all time. He was very helpful and he even let the class look at our notes during the hardest tests. I thought that it was ridiculous that all these kids would make fun of him and take advantage of him. He may be a bit odd, but he is a very nice guy who cares about every student. I would only recommend that he builds some more authority and sends more kids "down to the front office" more often. 'That's why the door swings out.'
