Signor Cassara was no nonsense, yet one of the nicest and passionate teachers I ever had. Graduated in 2001 and even though I went into healthcare, his professionalism still speaks to me. I hope he is doing well in retired life!
He was magnifico! I had him from 1987-1990. Honestly, he was THE BEST part of massapequa high. I became a teacher partly because of this wonderful man. The matching socks and his LOVE for tennis made him SO much fun. He truly cared about us and was ALWAYS there for me. I won the Dante medal because you inspired me signor Cassara! I miss you to this day! Charles P.
Simply the best!
My favorite teacher. He would say "Ciao Bella" to me a lot. I remember little Italian but will always remember Mr. Cassara. I loved the International festival in 1977 I danced the Tarantella.
One of, if not the best teacher on the planet. He needs to join Facebook so we can all tell him how much we love him. All your students are dying to find u. -J. Aiello
Class of 1984! He was the best teacher I ever had! So energenic and fun. Always said "Achipicia!" & "chow Bella!"
I had Signor Cassara for four years (1983-87...the last graduating class at Berner High School)and he was one of the best. I still know all my Italian today!!! Molto Grazie!!!
