The legend of Connor's Honors will live on forever as long as the BC High institution stands. You will be missed Mr. Connors. (Low key crying as I write this). Sad I didn't really get to say goodbye. You've left us too soon. Please keep watch over the science department. Those rugrats (yes rugrats, both teachers and students) are struggling without you. Take care until we one day meet again...

The phrase "Honors Connors" Was on the projection screen along with those other words and our fallen hero, A Bradley on that fateful Montserrat day. Let us all remember those who have been in his class.

He is a good guy, not a good teacher. It feels like he sort of gives up half way.

Mr.Connors is an amazing teacher. I bitterly disagree with the previous comments. He is a good teacher who knows how to maintain the class's attention through stories meanwhile teaching the content at a rapid pace.
Good Teacher

Connors really does not deserve such a bad reputation. I know from experience that Chem-H is one of the hardest courses at BCH. H/e, his difficulty and ridiculous expectations allowed me to attain

As much as I think Connors is a good guy at heart, he gets to be pretty unfair by the end of the year (grading SAT2's as tests, 1% accuracy on labs) and you have to teach the entire class to yourself. It's one thing to be hard...but he is just unfair.

Mr. Connors is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Didn't realize this untill I went to take a chem. class this year, 4 years after I took his class, and I still was comfortable with most of the material in the class. Just study and you'll do well.

Honors chemistry sounds about the same as it was when I had "honors Connors" 15 years ago: high expectations and no BS tolerance. He sets a high bar, but is an honors class. Beware if chemistry doesn't come naturally because there is no safety net.

I did supprisingly well in his honors class but it was very difficult. His class is not impossible but he expects someone too know every little thing he mentions in class.

Very straight-forward teacher. His theory is that if you dont get it, you never will. Not easy to find afterschool, but it is possible to do well if u try hard

His chemistry class is indeed very tough -- regular is comparable to honors, and honors to AP, compared to the other teachers. But He is very intelligent and knows probably the most about chemistry than any teacher at BC High. Hard class, but worth it.
