I took Heelan's acting class this past fall and it was by far the best experience I've had at Andover so far! He is very passionate about theater and really motivates students to get into visual arts during their time at Andover. Every class with him is a riot and he has the funniest, wackiest sense of humor. He is truly one of the best and most inspirational teacher Andover has seen. :) Thank you, Mr. Heelan

By far, the best teacher I have ever had. Mr. Heelan is funny, brilliant, kind and caring. His public speaking class was the best class I have ever taken at Andover.

I'm surprised he doesn't have a solid 5.0 rating. He is the best public speaking teacher ever. He's hilarious, understanding, and his class will really help you enjoy an otherwise stressful term. Great teacher if you want to enjoy life and have lots of free cuts.

Hilarious. Down to earth. Easy to talk to. You MUST have him as a teacher before you graduate--playwriting, theater, anything.

In the 4 years I went to PA, this guy was the best english teacher I had. Playwriting (05!!) was fantastic! You work for the fun of it and you learn a lot too. A genius. Take it.

It is obvious that Heelan is into is own stuff more than he is into teaching. But hey gotta respect that. Really enjoyable though don't take him too seriously!

I have Heelan for public speaking. He's a really good guy, his classes are a lot of fun, and he obviously knows what he's talking about, I mean, he's a pretty prominant playwright. I can't emphasize enough the fact that he really knows his stuff.
