Was in his first ever class in 1971, at the old prep in Williamsburg. Biology, next year Chemistry. Always helpful, yet able to control adolescent males well. were fair, and honest. He prepared us by saying 'this is important, you never know where you'll see it again'. He started the first ever Advanced Placement course in Biology, with really meaningful material. Several of the few students went to medicine or even aerospace. He was at most nine years older, now I'm 60! Many Thanks Mr.B !
I might be aging myself but Mr Barricelli was my sophmore chemistry teacher in 1974 when Bishop Reilly HS became Prep. I thought he was great and have fond memories from....yikes...42 years ago.
He was easy but he didn't prepare us for the final. It's no surprise they got rid of him after my year...
Really cool teacher once he let loose a while. We had a fun class even though we all did pretty bad. He gave us the same test over and over again and it ended being the final. That was awesome. Miss h
AB was one of the funniest teachers I had at Prep. Loved his dry sarcastic humor. He's still teaching. Impressive!
he was tough but in the end we learned evrything we needed to know and he had the occasional fun class
I LOVE MR BARRICELLI EVEN THOUGH HE"S A LIBERAL he is hilarious
i like him but i dont understand him. he doesnt clarify that well.
BEST TEACHER EVER!!! THE FUNNIEST MAN ALIVE! Be good and ull pass his class
BAD teacher ever if you are taking physsciencetey NOT to take HIM
OMG!! Uncle Barri!! lolz ..he's awesome! i didin't like him when i had him, but now he's aiight ... he stops by cor evry day and we all talk 2 him about how funny class was last year .. gud times!!!!!
best teacher ever. went from an 84 to a 93.. im bound to pass the regents with this guy. he makes things light, funny, and clear. not boring and comlicated
best science teacher i had in this school. he taught me biology in a way that i could understand it.
Craziest science teacher ever, but in a good way. Made it memorable and interesting. Easy marker. 2nd biggest sci-fi nut I know.
very easy, and very nice, if your planning on taking chem at all, take honors chem so you have a shot at getting him for chem, mr ciafa is cool too
Mr. Barricelli can be funny, but he's a terrible teacher. He never explains things clearly and he rushes through things a lot. He doesn't often answer question
IT'S CAPTAIN CHEMISTRY!!!! Oh man Chemistry was great. Fuzzy wuzzy
hes the man he will just start talking in a southern accent outta know where i love you dad
I had Mr. B in 1975 and I honestly can say he was the best teacher I've ever had. I still remember not to combine Na + H2O. Keep rockin!Chris Gabriel(McKnight)
I'm warning anyone who's thinking of Honors Chem to back out now because you could end up with him. I hate him so much and I'm soo lost!
Why do his honors classes know less than regular classes of other teachers!! Grumpy, miserable old man.
He is the worst ever, we learned more from Ms S and Mr cC in a few days then with barry all year!!!!!!!!!!!
i think hes a great teacher! at first its hard to understand him but everyone in his class always does great on the regents. Plus, the class is always fun!
Mr. Barricelli is the worst teacher i have ever had. He doesn't teach and refuses to explain anything!!!!! What's wrong with you people?!
Mr. Barricelli was the best! Thanks for Honors Chemistry you are the man!
has tendency to yell at students when asked about their grade
Mr. Barricelli is without a doubt the coolest and most experienced science teacher at Prep!!!
