He spends too much time complaining about the amount of work he volunteered to do, and not enough time teaching. His class is overenrolled, and we spend more time on the syllabus than the coursework.

He's rude and arrogant, and treated me badly because I refused to worship him, or devote my life to his class. I managed to get an A, a 5, and learn a lot without groveling. he's a good teacher, and very smart, but he needs a huge attitude adjustment.

McGurn is the baest teacher I have had. That man actually made me appreciate, enjoy and remember history. He takes the time to make it real. I loved how'd he tell us the most random history facts so that we would then remember somethin' else.LOVED HIM

Its hard to describe a teacher that puts so much passion and dedication into his work. The best teacher i have had yet, this type of teacher makes you wish some were paid more, some less...

If you have anything negative to say about McGurn than chances are you a) have never heard of him or b) failed because you didn't pay attention. McGurn is without a doubt the best teacher at Albany High, probably one of the best in the country. LOVE YOU!
