Mr. McConnell was always more interested in being treated with respect (meaning students should fear him) rather than teaching. He never asked to see homework meaning it was too tempting not to bother doing it.

He is strict but only to people who aren't willing to make the effort, he is not half as bad as people make him out to be, he's acctually a really nice man and if you just try in his class he will help you as much as he can, the only people who he doesn't help are the people who aren't trying to learn. Great teacher

Spent many years trying to decide if he was a great or an awful teacher; I think on balance the former. Advice: speak more, you're worth listening to!

When he's good, he is great. But he does not suffer fools & someone teaching teenagers must have a min. level of patience & tolerance. Needs to be more balanced
