Good but difficult teacher.
Mr. O is a teddy bear at heart :)
Hands down one of the best teachers at interlake. He doesn't treat you like a baby, but he totally gets when you make a mistake. Keep up with your notes and you'll be good. I love love love Mr. O and his humor, but don't underestimate him and take him seriously!!
Graduated now, but Mr. O was the best teacher I had at Interlake. He cares about his students and want them to succeed. His lectures are informative and entertaining. He is a guru in US History (AP and IB). He is respected by his students, and really makes class enjoyable, even if you don't like history.
The best teacher I've had. Hard grader, but a great teacher. Lectures are very interesting. He might joke around a lot and poke fun, but he truly cares about his students and wants them to succeed. What makes him such a great teacher is that he is a genuinely good person. Anyone lucky enough to have him should appreciate every minute they get!
He is the BEST teacher ever because he really makes the class interesting unlike other teachers would. he makes the class fun
Mr. O manages to be strict, respected and appreciated. That is true of very few teachers. His class is a lot of work but he makes it worthwhile. His lectures are the funniest and it is really easy to get hooked and forget to take notes.
Ending the day with his class is pretty awesome.
One of the best teachers I've ever had.
BEST teacher I've ever had. Super funny, makes class fun. I wish every teacher was like that.
Very funny, very helpful/resourceful. Just have to ask him if you have any questions. Difficult class, but as long as you do your hw and pay attention in class (and ask him for help when you need it) you'll be fine.
If you don't get "the big O" for US History, consider yourself at a LOSS! HE IS THE BEST HISTORY TEACHER EVER! Get INVOLVED as much as you can in his class, you WILL NOT REGRET IT! If you need help, go in and see him during tutorial, he WILL help you! And don't take things personally, he has a teenage sense of humor. He's a really funny guy, so if you treat him ALMOST like one of your friends, then you will enjoy the class.
He is a freaking awesome teacher! It was always a joy to go to class, but watch out for his tests!
To sum it up about Mr. O, if you can't stand lecture, then his class is going to bore you. But, if you can get engaged in his explanations and actually listen, the energy that he exudes and the overuse of hand movements will keep you entertained AND help you learn. Just don't mention anything over a PG-13 rating or he turns into a tomato. ^_^
You have to have his class, you will never regret it .
russian history was actually interesting with mr. o. i'm a republicrat! hahaha! go stalin!
I loved having Mr. O as a teacher because he actually makes the lessons relevant to what happens around us. I took many lessons from his classes and was able to apply them to real life! Thanks Mr. O!
