Best teacher I have had so far in high school. All of his lessons are interesting and he often makes present day connections to help us understand. He is always available to help his students and you can tell that he cares about his students. He greets us all at the door every single day :)

Mr. Gannon inspired me to become a teacher. In fact, due to his exemplary performance in teaching AP World History, my dream is to one day teach the same subject. No teacher prepared me better for an exam, and no teacher in DHS will work harder to help you improve. He has a great sense of humor, and delivers the material in ways that allow students to retain a large amount of it years afterward. There isn't a better teacher in DHS. It was a privilege to have been taught by Joseph Gannon Jr.

Yes, he is a great teacher. Made things very fascinating, made connections unlike many teachers. But his arrogance, his opinionated attitude, his continuous references to himself just ruined the class

He is a good teacher. However, he is extremely opinionated. He often fails to realize that many of his students have excellent ideas. A different idea is not necessarily an incorrect one!

Mr. Gannon is helpful but if you are too sensitive you can take some of the things he says personally bur he's jk. He knows when you are trying and is a great guy and if you try you will be rewarded
