By far the best teacher presented throughout my high school career.
Daniel Sabatini makes the false irony that, despite how smart one is, that person may not think. Sabatini paraphrases J.D. Salinger and mentions how Holden Caulfield says a particular person is smart but that he doesn't have any brains. Sabatini doesn't really count certain thoughts as thoughts, and it is often made out that a person questioning this doesn't get irony. Students often get disrespected by Sab making it questionable as to whether or not someone in the class is a "thinking" person.
He's a really good teacher and he makes you question things, but not everyone can handle his class because he makes us think a lot about everything. I'm glad I got to take his class, though.
Daniel Sabatini asked a question to his tenth grade students to be answered in a graded essay. It was about whether mental illness is real, or if mental illness is a constructive explanation in reaction to human processes. We watched "A Beautiful Mind" and read quotes from Roger Waters; later, the majority of the class rejected science while nevertheless claiming to be more free-thinking. R.D. Laing was mentioned frequently.
Sab happens to convince students that very peculiar interpretations of events are facts. He claimed that at least some of those who do not do all of the written work for class are "owned by culture" and cannot "unplug" from the social matrix that is supposedly dictating their lives. He counted only three of twelve students as those who did the work, and he mentioned social Darwinism as he called them the survivors of his class. He also talks of the spiritual and psychological deaths of students.
Best teacher I've ever had. My favorite class of the day. The only class I can stay interested and focused the entire time. The only thing I don't like about this class is when my friend tries to talk to me while he's teaching.
He made us all into hipsters. I had him like 10 years ago. Still a hipster.
Mr. Sabatini isn't for everyone. His class is about learning to question what you believe, not because what you believe is wrong, but to better understand what you believe. There are many people who don't like him because he challenges people to think for themselves or because many people take his class and then just become his disciple. That is the opposite of his intentions. He is a very intelligent and opinionated man, but the goal of his class is to be open and think for yourself.
Daniel Sabatini was the worst teacher I've had throughout my entire education.
My son kept talking about this teacher and he couldn't wait to go to school every day.
I finally met him face to face at parents night at the school and was blown away.
I have never been so impressed by a professional and a hardworker, the way he explains things is very different and very easy to follow and I understand now why son loves school finally.
i am very grateful for what he does and how he makes things so interesting and gets the students to work so hard.
Daniel Sabatini is an interesting character and brings that into the class room. He only makes things as difficult as you think they are. The easiest way to pass is to forget you ever knew anything about everything. Simply states the obvious.
my older bro said he once made a kid cry in class. that didn'yt happen in my class, but he acts smarter than EVERYONE i don't know whos writing the super good reviews all in a row (suspiceous much?) but trust me he isnt all that. i had him 2 years.
boring unless you believe that you are superior to everyone else and deserve to be part of his stupid cult
There are loads of teachers that are handed these 5/5 star rating's like it's nothing. This is the only teacher who's ever actually TAUGHT me something. All these reviews don't exaggerate when they say he's a flawless teacher. He challenges us, but we benefit so incredibly much from it. Greatest teacher I've ever had, and no doubt in my mind, the best teacher I'll ever have. He's THAT teacher. If you're reading this, Sab, thanks for waking me up.
Mr. Sab is the best teacher I ever had and one of the greatest people I know. He not only teaches an Honors English class but he teaches the values of life and the best ways to live life and achieve your full potential. Happiness is the key to everything.
If you're semi-intelligent, then you'll probably walk away with more than any other English class in your entire life. I can honestly say that he's the best teacher I've ever had. Thank you, Mr. Sab.
I've learned so much this year with him and you actually remember what he says, he also helped me with personal things too, he changed my outlook on life,and he is probably the best teacher i ever had
He changes lives. Teachers are supposed to change lives. He makes you believe in yourself so that you might find a meaning in life. It seems like he does this every day.
Sab is incredible. He is an unbelievably cool guy who makes things -big things- make sense. I think he knows it, but he really is the best.
sabs a good teacher even tho we dont get along very well. im glad i had him last year and again this year as a teacher because he teaches more than just english
His teaching changed my whole perspective on everything! Hands down the best at BCTHS. Will probably get a big head after reading all these.... but he's great!
Mr.Sabatini is unbelievable. He said one good question is enough to change a person's life forever. I finally understand everything.
