My inspiration to continue my ambition of becoming a history teacher. Simply put. Said and done. Great teacher, great coach, great friend. John Abbott has began its downfall as JAC and David O'keefe part ways. Only one of the two will continue to strive. One hint: John Abbott College never helped me with a thesis and field a ground ball.

Mr.Okeefe is the greatest teacher I have ever had in any school. He is passionate about what he teaches, knows what he is tlaking about (a welcome change from other JAC teachers). He is always available for extra help; inside and outside the classroom. He's fair, demands a lot but in a the way teachers are suposed to challenge you and keeps you always interested in history. Never has a man made me so compelled to excell in a class. Thank you Dave-ur#1-na mater what some say! Skritchy ;)

David is a great teacher. If you don't really like history, you will after you take his class. His modern history class is amazing. Make sure you read the book to follow up on clas lectures, and use the cd he makes. It gives you good insight on pop quizzes and the final exam. David is always willing to help his students out, just make sure your dedicated as a student and you show up to class and pay attention. Thanks for the trip to the war museum, it was fun and interesting.Thank you David!
