He kicked me out of class on our second day...yet over 15 years later I think of him fondly. A brilliant teacher on every level, a paragon of the profession. If you read this, Mr. Farell--, Ilia, the Russian-Jewish kid from Palo Alto who came to visit you and the other teachers at the English department so often between 1995 and 1997, sends all his love. :-)
Mr. Farrell is by far one the greatest English teachers I've ever had! He is so knowledgeable and shares his passion for literature with all of us. I am considering to major in English because of him. He genuinely cares about his students.
One of the best teachers in the school. It's a shame he only teaches one or two classes a year.
the most amazing teacher you could ever hope to find in highschool! THIS MAN IS A TREASURE!
Awesome, sincere, contagiously enthusiastic, caring, knowledgeable
Mr. Farrell was my teacher in the late '70s. He was certainly the best teacher I have ever had during any stage of my education. I couldn't possibly thank him enough.
The best teacher I ever had, and I went to an Ivy League college. I was lucky enough to have a class with him each year in high school. I remember so much - the man taught us how to think!
He knows so much and he's eager to share it all with us... I love having him as a teacher!
Mr Farrell is by far one of the BEST english teacher i've had.
A memorably good teacher. He made me want to be a teacher too.
