As a person, Mr. A is an amazing guy. But as a teacher, he lacks a lot. In class, any teaching of the lessons is almost non-existent, but that is what the homework is for. And for any of you that lack in the category of homework, he will work his rear end off to make sure you come in after school to do retests and make-up homework just so you pass. Other than that, he is an awesome and nice guy. Super respectful and will definitely be checking in with him after my academic career.
Mr. A is one of three teachers that inspired me to become a teacher. His ability to connect with students was something I hope I can emulate. As a classroom teacher, he is not the best. He often times is multi-tasking while he should be teaching his class and just makes you read the textbook instead. He is very by-the-books when it comes to wearing an Id and tucking in your shirt, a little too much. Despite some flaws, he is one of the greatest men I have ever met, let alone teachers!
Honestly Mr. A is the greatest guy around. He's kind, caring, and overall a wonderful person. But he definitely picks favorites,
luckily I was one of them. Not the best teacher but a cool guy love Mr. A!
Aqua is by far the nicest guy you will ever meet. If you pay attention in class, and I mean really, you'll be fine. If you're struggling, talk to him. He's fairly good about helping you out and extra credit for him is a huge plus.
Amazing mentor and friend. Couldn't ask for a better teacher.
Here's the deal. Mr. A is very polarizing, you will either love him or hate him, and if it's not immediately, the feeling will be mutual. He plays favorites, issues demerits like candy (I'm pretty sure he enjoys it), is incredibly religiously bigoted (And I'm Catholic!), and has on a few occasions made up rules (Like requiring us guys to tie a double-Windsor knot, even though I explained that in the handbook it stated that it only needed to be correctly tied.) So yeah, I'm not a fan.
One of the best at Shanahan.
One of my favorite teachers in all four years. He's very passionate about his faith, but that's why he's a theology teacher. He's always willing to help and that's what makes him amazing.
Great teacher who loves the faith. He is always in school and willing to help. Will miss you Mr. A.!!!
Good guy overall and a great religion teacher but needs to work on the teaching aspect.
Mr. A is pretty much never in class because he is doing something student council related. His quizzes aren't bad, and you can basically bribe him to get the grades you want. The only annoying thing is that he always thinks he's right, there's no arguing with him.
Mr. A is very nice and super funny. He knows his stuff, and I look forward to his class everyday. I love CD on the DL's.
As a theology teacher Mr. A is one of the best there is in the aspect that he is always willing to discuss a subject. Unlike some teachers who shoot you down immediately, at least he gives you a chanc
Mr. A isnt the best teacher in the world, mostly because he is so busy taking care of EVERYTHING for the school. He is really passionate about what he teaches and it shows in his work. Very good perso
I have trouble bashing this man. He's a good guy, a little nuts - but hey, he teaches theology. Being nuts is almost a job requirement.
The best teacher at Shanahan. I learned more from him than all the other teachers combined.
As a teacher, you rarely learn anything from his class.His quizzes are purposefully ridiculous, but by the end of the quarter you can easily get the grade you want. He's an great guy, fun to work with
His class is rough, as he isn't around most of the time. I love him outside of class though, he's a really cool guy. His class, however, is not so good.
Don't learn anything in his class! But it can be funny at times.
way too unorganized not the best guy to be in charge of so many things in the school he doesnt know how to organize. he plays favorites.. he doesnt teach ANYTHING all year.
Mr. A is different. He isn't really on time, and he usually doesn't go over all the material in time for the test. I guess he's nice cause he gives EC. his CD are nice too (cookie days rule!)
dude, i did horrible in his class, but hes the nicest person you will ever meet. I didnt do bad because he was hard, i just didnt try and he gave a mercy points, hes such a nice teacher!
He's definitly not a great teacher, but he's a really good like mentor and you'll learn alot about life it just won't be on his tests
teacher who will not listen to reason and must always be right. insufferable at times. most of the time. all the time.
Aqua is one of the best teachers i have ever had. He is a good mentor in and out of the classroom.
Really stubborn and only teaches what he believes. He refuses to argue with students on points and just immediately shoots you down because he cant support anything he says
Mr. A. is the most awesome teacher. He knows everything about what he teaches and can answer any question. He makes class fun, too. There is never a dull moment!
Mr.A is a great teacher and he is always fair and very informative. I have become more religious because of his class. PTL
Aqua is the man! He's a great teacher. He's fun and spontaneous. He practices what he preaches. He lets you argue. He backs up everything he says. PTL!!!
Dude, like Aqua stands up for Catholicism and thats standing up for what the truth really is-hes not afraid to speak the truth, even when some ppl don't get it
great guy but don't even think you'll ever win an arguement about catholicism. only if he could lighten up about being a hard core catholic he would be better.
One of the few religion teachers that will let you argue with them about faith, and thats a good thing
Cool guy. There's always EC in case you start failing quizzes.
Aqua was one of the worst teachers i have ever had he had no room for your opinions or beliefs and truly had no opinions of his own just what the church said
Aqua is a great teacher, lots of fun in class and great to argue with, I have him for lunch this year, Woo!
I loved Mr. A!!! im in college now and i miss him!!!PTL for life!!!
Fun to start arguments with in class, has lots of characteristics to impersonate, easy teacher, easy going, fun loving. You'll either love him or hate him.
