Wow. I'm really gonna miss Mr. Connor. Hands down the best teacher I have ever had. Honestly he should have been a college professor. He was very kind and knowlegble, and never rose his voice at any student. Wish I knew before that he was retiring cause I would have gotten him a gift. Dan the Man!

Although he has a deep pool of knowledge, Dan is extremely uninteresting and very hard to focus on when he's speaking. We rarely do any work in class or for homework, which is why we call it the phone class. His marking is also heavily based on class behaviour so even if your works good your in class behaviour will usually heavily impact your mark.

I had Mr.Connor for Socials 9 six years ago and I still remember him being a great teacher, a true influence! He is knowledgeable and not the type of teacher that sticks to the textbook.

If u think he doesn't like u it's either because
1. You're rude
2. You talk
3. You never read anything he gives u
4. You never pay attention
Avoid those things and you'll be in his good books, he's a very forgiving and wise man

I have had Mr. Connor two years in a row. If I were to judge by last years experience I would give full marks to him but this year was a different story. I found him extremely unmotivated and unhelpful and at the halfway point of third term he managed to fail most of his students across his classes including a number of straight a students. This year was a real letdown from Mr. Connor

Mr connors is so interesting and an amazing teacher. Some kids find him boring which i absolutely disagree with because if you follow the discusstion from day one, you really feel involved with the class. He seems to deal with kids who act out in an appropriate way instead of yelling. Everything in his class is carefully planned out, and at the end of each class, I feel like everything he has said connects. "A"s are recieved easily by following along and i learn so much in his class

Simply set on making sure we figure out the answer for ourselves, all he does is leave clues and help us follow making him an excellent teacher. His tests are rather opinionated though.

Sometimes, it is very hard to hear him and then you do not do as well in his class as you want to. But otherwise, one of my favorite teachers. I also like when he tells the guys in my class off because thats absolutely hilarious.
