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.
excellent teacher...only teacher i had at bc high who gave out tests that were both fair and challenging. I know people might complain about his difficulty, but I think he has made an effort to grade
awesome teacher step off boys. its a hard subject and his practices only improve your understanding of chemistry
I FRUGGIN LOVE JIMMY! HES THE BEST CHEM TEACHAH EVUH â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥â™¥
ok based on these reviews u probably think he sucks. Im an average student though and I worked hard. He would always help me and if I bombed something I could take it over. GET ON HIS GOOD SIDE !
on the 1st day he said hes notorious for being tough and he wont be like that anymore and he really isnt, he made first semester easy, half the class got As on the midterm, but third quarter is hard..
he's aiight. Pretty tough but if you try in class (extra help) and do homework you'll survive.
Inside he is a nice guy and wants to help you learn, but he screws up your GPA, LIke really bad
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.
Listen. If you want to know what college is about, listen to Jim. Honestly, he doesn't hold your hand...stop crying.
One of the worst teachers I've ever had. Offers little help, tests are impossible, and even with an outside toutor I still almost got an E.
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
he knows what he's doin, but its just hard to follow sometimes....
OK teacher but tries to make fun of Navarette who is 10x cooler...
through material 2 quik,could never get help from friends, always behind us.gives tests on material hasn't taught yet, puts about half of class in summer school
It's definitely a challenge if you aren't prepared for one, but this class is worth it.
Hey, I got As from Mr. Connors. Believe it or not, it is possible. He's a heck of ateacher if you're not goofing off or napping.
Worst teacher I have ever had. Wish I had did the smart thing and transfered out when I had the chance.
hes a good teacher, just incredibly hard. i did manage a c+ this term tho. score!
Couldn't imagine Chem with anyone else. You're the best, Mr. Connors.
He's convinced of his superiority to his colleagues and tries to make his students think so...sorry, I ain't buying it
Definitely a challenging teacher, but that's what makes him so great.If students aren't up for the challenge, maybe they shouldn't take his class.Great teacher!
His method of teaching helps you actually learn the material, not simply memorize it and forget it. He should teach Chem AP.
Comes off as a nice enough guy, but in the end his I'm-better-than-you attitude makes him an awful teacher.
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.
A class not to be missed. One of the best teachers in the school. Very, very hard.
