He definitely scared me as a freshman, but he always stayed after to offer extra help, and I'll never forget when I saw him at one of my soccer games. Rest In Peace, Mr. Farrelly.

His class is tough, but he's the man so it's okay. Tells good stories/jokes. If there was a face that said very cool I would have clicked it.

Has alot of hype surrounding his teaching, but in the end is a excelent teacher. He will teach you more than you would want to know on topic and life. A must.

It's the explosive combination of shouted lessons, sarcastic jokes, stories, and - oh yeah, teaching - that make Mr. Farrelly's classes so incredible.
