Very hard marker. Extremely knowledgeable, makes sure to thoroughly explain and make students think about all of the content that is read. lengthy tests and exam, a lot of long answer. Funny guy but would recommend taking english online especially if you are a procrastinator lol.

Super knowledgeable guy. Likes to get off topic with things that matter. Tough, tough marker -- gives out exemplars of your peers' work that is only a 4-, which seems to be the highest grade you could ever achieve in his class. Most grade 12s opt out of in-class English and take it as an online course during their final year, as his strict grading can leave a dent in your transcript (especially if english isn't in your post-secondary plans). Good guy though, always knows what he's talking about.

What a great teacher! Challenging - made me work for my marks and opened my brain to new ideas. I had him for many different classes gr. 10-OAC (yes, OAC was a while ago). Sticks in my mind as one of those teachers you hope your kids will have

Mr.O'Connor was strict. I didn't get my work done due to a loss of inner fire. But by the end of the year, I was trying my hardest. If I had any other teacher, I don't think I would have even tried.

Cares about us individually, and knows what he's talking about. Can be blunt, but not in a mean way. Not a hard marker if you do your work. None too bad looking, either!

This was my first year with Mr. O'Connor and I finally got to see first hand what everyone was talking about when they said he's awesome. Class was always interesting, especially when we talked about real issues. Ball was fun!
