He's really knowledgeable about what he teaches and he's got a lot of hilarious stories and jokes (mostly about people but oh well). His tests and quizzes are pretty much just from the homeworks and notes from class so make sure to actually do them!! He's really easygoing and doesn't collect homework too often but if you don't do it when he does your grade's probably gonna drop a lot. Overall he's one of my favorite teachers and made my senior year more fun and memorable.

Easiest and most straightforward teacher ever. His class is kinda boring but it is SOOOO easy to pass. The whole year consists of just notes, quizzes, tests, a term paper, and daily lectures. Gets straight to the point, doesn't make you participate, and wastes no time doing other pointless bullcrap like group work or tedious projects. Also extremely chill and easy going and has a good sense of humor(loves to make fun of bush). Definitely knows what he is talking about and I was lucky I had him.

His class is really easy to get a high grade in. All his tests are based on his notes, so make sure to copy them. All of his quizzes are pop-quizzes, so just cram in those 10 minutes before he tests you. Just do the homework because they're seriously short and easy. His class may be mostly talking, but he makes them interesting.

He is an amazing history teacher, he knows his stuff and class is fun. He lets you sit wherever and as long as you do your HW, project, and do good on his tests (which are easy). You're getting a 99(:

Mr. O'Shea is the man. I got a 100 on all of his tests and dominated in the Aquire. He was a great mentor and sparked my interest in economics. Me and my friend sat next to each other and won Jeapardy

he's a very cool teacher, easy but DO NOT be late , and DO HW since he takes off points of rc for being late and only checks hw like 3 times the mp and if you dont do them, you screwed. got a 65 instead of 90 for doing those

He's a great teacher. He knows what he is teaching and does it really well. His notes are excellent and they completely cover anything on his tests. Aside from that, he will make you laugh until you bust a gut. Take advantage of his laziness (I mean that in a good way). Plus, he is always willing to go off topic and talk about other things that are actually interesting and relevant. Mr. O'Shea rocks!

He's very self arragant. He thinks he's funny and his classes are really boring. Its hard to stay awake in his class. He's also unfair with his grades, some people he takes off 1.5 points for lateness, while others he takes off .5 or 3. i dont see how teachers like that get hired at tech.

O'shea is without a doubt the best global teacher you could have! He knows wat he is talking about and if you listen you could actually learn something. Just do well on your tests and occasionaly your hw and youve got a 90!
