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!
All i can say is Dan the man will stay in Rockridge history as the best teacher i had him 2 years in a row and this year after he retire truly found myself appreciating him.
Mr.Conner is an amazing teacher and he will be missed next fall when he retires this year :(
he's a great teacher
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 new me and Dan were real bros, when we hit up a phatty j after class one day. Dan is the man and consistently bros down.
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.
best social teacher ever! kind, understanding, love him!
One of the most knowledgeable teachers I've ever had. I used to hate history but now I love it!
pretty much one of the chillezt teacherz at RR. Real nice. Hope he never retires
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.
best teahcer. smartest person i have ever met. he knows so much and is such a good teacher. he has a guilletine in his closet. but hes AWESOME. he won the govenor generals award for excellence in teaching, one of the best teacher in canada. JOIN AMNESTY INTERNATION FIRDAYS AT LUNCH IN ROOM C203
Whoever wrote that comment that he wasn't that great, well you don't try and fail at socials. He is my favourite teacher ever and frankly, I find his lessons very interesting.
he's awesome!!!! i actually understand SS! very easy, but have learned alot this year... abit too smart :P
mr. connors is an awesome teacher but talks too much and is realy boaring. i think he is one of the only teachers that realy cares about his students!he only gives like 2 tests a year but there hard!
Mr. Connor is amazing!!! He's too good for highschool, though, should be teaching in universities. He's too cool for school!!!!
He knows everything! he is like a living text book...wouldn't want to play trivia with him!! BEST teacher ever!!
KNOWS EVERYTHING, NOTHING HE DOES NOT KNOW, PRESENT OR PAST OR FUTURE
Dosn't belong teaching highschool. Should be teaching at a University.
mr connor is by far the best teacher in the school!! he helps us understand history by showing us modren day materials! he keeps things interesting!he is understanding and is one of the only teachers who genuinly cares!
Mr. Connor is one of the sweetest teacher up at Rockridge. Although, his classes are quite dull. (mono tone lectures.) BRING COFFEE TO HIS CLASS! ;)
mr connor is an amazing teacher. although his classes are composed of hour long lectures, he teaches history by making it a story. he also gives you unit tests ahead of time (but doesnt give u the answers). he is incredibly fair and considerate
best teacher, Ever. Very clear even when he starts talking about completely random stuff.
This guy must have been a University teacher in a past life. He tends to drone but his work is fun and he really knows his stuff. Hope I get you next year!
best teacher ever. seems to know everything. he always knows how to explain things in an interesting way, but his tests are hard
mr. connner is super cool! take notes, and u'll do fine! his talks are accurate, but can sometimes put you to sleep! lol we like making him walk the plank!
Sooo good! (If you can keep from falling asleep as he drones on all class)
great guy, easy class. do the work, ask lots of questions, act interested. its all about the class participation. do notes for first term he may collect them
Rambles alot, but a good teacher if you can make yourself listen.
teaches a pretty easy class, but a really good teacher
