Mr.Dossena doesn't prepare students for tests very well. He just stands in front of the class and yaps the whole class expecting you to understand him. Also, he doesn't give many worksheets which would personally help me understand what were learning better. Also, he definitely picks favorites.

A great guy. Class is super fun if you've got the right kids that don't tick him off. Also a great track/XC guy! Don't misinterpret his jokes for being mean -- he's just a goofy, friendly guy.

In my opinion Dossena pick his favorite students the first day without even getting to know them and he assigns labs that take two days to complete but wants it done in one day not to mention he snapped at me for being out sick and not understanding the work I mean who does that and he's so hot headed and got an extremely short temper
