Apparently Mr O`Connor is a highly educated man. I think he is dedicated and well meaning, unfortunately many people like him lack common sense. Burying students with homework is not the way to go. He needs to understand that there are other things in life besides school work. Guys need to socialize and be involved in sports or clubs. Students do not get enough sleep which then makes them sick and they miss school. Can we find some common sense somewhere?

Mr O'connor is a genius- by far one of the smartest teachers in the school. He has the largest vocabulary out of any individual I have ever known. Vocab tests and grammar tests are very straightforward. Most of your grade is essays, so you HAVE to do well on them. He gradelocks people on their essays, but he gradelocks some people at really high grades (some people are gradelocked at 100!). So do well in the beginning of the year: use complicated grammatical structures and vocabulary.

O'Connor is the man. Reading quiz once a week. Ask fellow students if there is a quiz. Rambles about politics regularly. You can sleep if you want to. Take him.

Great teacher with a good grasp on course material. A little boring at times, though he tries to relate current events to the class. Always approachable and a fairly decent grader on essays.
