Although I have not had him, I base the actual review off of siblings & other's word of the legend of Dattolo. He holds a record of only missing a couple of days of school both as a student and as a teacher, and had a direct relation with Bruce Springsteen. His class is hard, but he is incredibly skilled in his profession.

I only had him as an "assistant" teacher for my Spanish II class freshman year (which was the last year he taught). Through such little exposure, I could still sense the genius of the man. He is extremely kind, extremely helpful, and an amazing teacher. I wish he was still teaching at Glen Rock.

I realize now how valuable Mr. Dattolo was to me when he taught me. I am in college now and I am doing extremely well in my Spanish class all because of Mr. Dattolo. Glen Rock lost a great teacher and man when Mr. Dattolo left to pursue college teaching. Like he wrote in my letter of recommendation- "He deserves all the best that life has to offer." My parents and I thank him for how he helped all of his students during his 42 years of public school teaching.
