At St. Francis High School in La Canada, Calif., there’s something to be said about math teacher Jim O’Connor. The question is, what is that something?
For whatever reason, none of his students would tell me what they really think of him.
“Oh, what’s the word,” one student says.
Jim O’Connor’s students thought they knew him — until last November, when senior Pat McGoldrick learned they didn’t know the half of him, or what he does in his free time.
