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.
This man is the worst teacher i have ever seen in my life... What college would even give him a doctorate? He is the dumbest man alive. He doesn't explain anything and when you try to ask questions all he says is, "okay son, settle down now or you'll be going to the detention hall." He also has no idea how to teach and uses power points from the textbook and random youtube videos. 90% of time spent in class is him checking the absurd amount of homework he gave us the night before.
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 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

if you want a laugh ask about the following: the chlorine pool story, his dog Charlie, Diana Ross, Motown, and his favorite anything (personal bias )
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.
He is probably the most unintelligent "teacher" ever. If you want to teach yourself biology, then this is the class for you!
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.
his class made my sophomore year so much more bearable. So honestly if you are having trouble in his class. Thats pretty bad.
One of my favorite classes I have ever had. Doc is a really nice guy and a good teacher. The kids who say he doesn't teach anything are the same kids who spend the whole class trying to take advantage
Doc was great, he constantly kept the class laughing with his rhymes and his attitude. He always knew what he was talking about and kept grades and other matters completely confidential so nobody got
two words Diana Ross. he is a great teacher and funny with his rhymes definitely one of the best classes.
Great teacher. Funny, and really knows Biology. Do the homework and it'll boost your grade at least half a letter.
He seriously is the man; his rhymes and overlays make class fascinating, but he could improve on teaching some concepts better.
Dr. Connolly is a bit weird, but he is definitely a knowledgeable man. He presents the class with a lot of information and is very helpful with explaining the work.
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.
I love this man, he just got a PHD in Teaching. Doc Connolly good times and great class.
Mr. Connolly is a very strict teacher, but he is extremely fair in dealing with the students. If you do all of your work, you will be fine and earn a good grade in his class!
Mr. Connolly is the BEST teacher ever! Do your work and you will be fine in his class.
Mr. Connolly is an excellent teacher, and he knows his material. He is very strict and often sends kids down to the "Front Office." Do not misbehave in his class. Do your work.
Mr. Connolly is a really nice guy, and it is absolutely horrendous how some people treat him. He knows a lot about Bio, but very little about class control.
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.'
The guy is a good teacher and is unfairly taken advantage of.
ok guy but extremely slow and boring class. push over. fun only because every one cracks on him
I did well without ever doing work. You can get away with ANYTHING in his class. It's a great class to play pranks. But don't be too rough on the guy.
Hes a little out there and his class isnt that easy but hes so funny and his class was the most fun ive ever taken at seton hall just b/c he was teaching it.
He doesn't make much sense and is too organized. A little bit of a germaphobe but he knows his stuff.
If you're taking bio, get Connolly. He's easy and you can usually just relax in his class
Really hard, his word in final, but some events in his class made it the funniest class I have ever been in.
Mr. Connolly is mad cool. He is one of the coolest Homeroom teachers i ever had. He basically let us do what ever we wanted as long as we did not get in trouble
Connolly is mad easy and if anyone is taking BIO they should definately take his class. HIs class was the highlight of my soph year. It was the most fun.
