I've never had an SS teacher like Doran. He is certainly a unique teacher with a personality.
I really appreciate the difficulty of his exams, his straightforwardness and his unbelievably thorough understanding of every aspect of his curriculum. He and Matheny REALLY prep you for IB. As one of his "favorites" he is definitely one of the best teachers that I've ever had, but I see why some others have a problem with him.
Great teacher, really wish I could have him again in Junior year.

I loved this class, and Mr. Doran had a great dynamic with Mrs.Matheny. I learned so much and more in their class. Mr.Doran is really funny, but keeps it mostly related to the topic at hand (the master of anecdotes you remember). He is super knowledgeable and explains things in an easy to digest manner (besides the fact that there is A TON of information being in honors). Always enjoyed it when I was down. I had a rough time with essays and tests though (I appreciate his feedback on the essays).

Doran is a great teacher and I wish I could have him as a teacher again. He's irreplaceable. He's LOUD. And he's hilarious. He's a great pair with Matheny; they are the best duo in the school. If you go to him for help, he's very very helpful. He will help you understand concepts, study, etc. His tests are no joke. I loved the class but the test were difficult.
