Doc Egan - I had his history class my senior year in 97. Always dressed in his tweed blazer, pack of Benson and Hedges in the breast pocket. He looked like a teacher from the 1950s with his short cropped hair, his cunning jokes, his tough as nails approach to teaching. You either knew the information he taught or you failed. I vividly remember Doc catching me reading Ken Follet's book, "Eye of the Needle" one Friday afternoon. He threw the book out the3rd floor window. Lol - a riot. RIP Doc!
Doc was one of a kind. He was extremely knowledgeble in historical facts. but he was better at preparing you for life's tougher situations.
A truly fantasic teacher. The best history class I ever had. He could have taught the whole year without notes. He made you work for your grade. Also funny and quick whitted
Best teacher I ever had. The sole reason I went on to College and became somthing. Someone should do a movie about this man.
Best wishes for a happy retirement Doc! You were a great teacher! I am glad I had you when I was a student in the early 90's.
He's a gentleman and a scholar! :) Hardest teacher at the Prep in '95. Best Wishes!
One of the greatest teachers at the Prep, and inspired me to be a teacher along with Mr. Pucciarelli. He's retiring this year(supposedly; he says that every year), and so I wish him the best of luck!
he cool he cool, but he mad old yo and shud be retired like every1 else said. also his class mad boring yo but doc da man
I graduated from the Prep a long time ago, and there is no one person in that building who has had a more profound effect on me. Listen and you'll understand.
Eeeehhhhh! I'll explain it in help class(no pictures)
Even at his age, Egan's sharp wit and dirty jokes are some of the funniest you'll hear from any teacher.
Doc's the man. With his quick wit and robust constitution, it's amazing he's still teaching. Easy class if you just study the notes he gives you, and fun.
Tough, but if you're willing to do like 20 minutes of work a night, and listen to him, it won't be tough for you.
