Had him my freshman year of high school, which was 14 years ago....and I still think of him as one of the greatest teachers I ever had.
He definitely scared me as a freshman, but he always stayed after to offer extra help, and I'll never forget when I saw him at one of my soccer games. Rest In Peace, Mr. Farrelly.
REST IN PEACE MR FARRELY--- we wont forget your quote "you can always tell a freshman, you just can't tell them much"
Great teacher, great man. We will miss him but forever be inspired by his teaching. Rest in peace.
Mr. Farrelly was not sapposed to retire yet but our favorite math teacher has sadley passed on. we will all remember him. he was going to turn 56 on 4/27/05 this wenesday. im sorry
One of my favorite teachers ever. He is amazing. Hilarious and very good at teaching. While he pretends to be mean, he is actually very caring.
Looking back (in college now), he's the best math teacher I've ever had. Sense of humor requried--but come on, he's so funny!
Yells a lot and uses word "understand" in all it's forms in every other sentence +] I start drifting off a bit +] But other than that he's a good teacher.
My fav. teacher my freshman year. Great personality, funny jokes and stories, and really good teacher. Luckey to have had him. Sad to see him go
Having been traumatized by his math and comp sci courses, there are a number of nice things I can say about Farrelly. But that would ruin his image ;)
An amazing teacher! Despite his joking around-pretending to be mean he is the nicest guy too. His classes are fun and interesting, and he teaches great.
His class is tough, but he's the man so it's okay. Tells good stories/jokes. If there was a face that said very cool I would have clicked it.
he's a cool guy but sometimes goes WAY too fast, i can't understand what he's teaching when he's working so fast on the overhead!just wish it more interactive.
he's the man. his grading...don't complain. he's doing it since the regents or whatever other test won't be any better. lessons are well structured, funny
thanx soooo much! ur class is great and ur stories keep it lively
Has alot of hype surrounding his teaching, but in the end is a excelent teacher. He will teach you more than you would want to know on topic and life. A must.
takin 12pts off a 2pt problem because i wrote that angles are congruent if they look congruent was not cool, but you still my fav teacher:)
It's the explosive combination of shouted lessons, sarcastic jokes, stories, and - oh yeah, teaching - that make Mr. Farrelly's classes so incredible.
"You can always tell a freshman. You just can't tell him/her much." -great personality, some unfair grading, but we love him in the end!
Farrelly is the coolest teacher in the world... I will never forget his class and how much fun he was and I'll miss him
I'll never forget his class. He helped me more than I could have ever asked for. Thank you for speaking at my graduation, and have a nice weekend.
Definitely my favorite teacher & story teller! Tell us the one about the ... DUCK! =)
I had him as a freshman. I didn't realize how amazing his class was until after I left. I look forward to having him as my graduation speaker. Welcome back.
I miss the jokes that i always expected in math class when i had him, and he's a great teacher!
He once took 10 points off a program in CompSci for naming all my variables after him. But he was a chuckle nonetheless.
Mr. Farrelly is the man..... after you get past the mean part he's awsome
most definetely the best teacher on the planet.his teaching method is soo effective and i will definetely miss mr farelly.keep up the classic jokes and stories!
good teacher and him yelling duck helps me stay awake first block ;)
Hands down the best teacher i had in HS, after my first class i wanted to cry and i laugh now looking back at it.
his AP Computer Science class is hard but its AP... so it should be! he is cool
OMG! Farrelly is soo hilarious... his jokes are soo funny u all are just Froshs!
I love Mr.Farelly's class even though he want's us to fail.
should consider being a comidian rather than a teacher
He's a good (but hard) teacher and really funny. I like his hearing his stories.
grumpy, mean and pretentious - didnt like him at all
