Mr. DeFazio is my favorite teacher. He is the reason my writing skills have improved as much as they have. DeFazio is the most focused and dedicated teacher that I have had the pleasure of learning from. He is very diligent and prepared for which ever turn our class discussion takes.

To put it simply, Mr. DeFazio is the most hard-working and intelligent I have ever encountered in my academic life. His knowledge of the course work, fun lessons, and organization are just a few of the many qualities that make him an outstanding teacher. One gets the sense that he truly cares for his students and encourages them to do well. When I am older, sitting with my children looking at my yearbook, and I flip to Mr. DeFazio's picture; I will tell them, "He had a huge impact on my life."

He's a really awesome teacher. At the beginning of the year, he puts on an attitude, but after that, his classes were really fun, and the work he gives you is definitely relevant towards developing/practicing skills for the AP tests.

I had his AP class last year. He greatly improved my writing but his attitude has changed. This alteration may be caused by his new classes. However..he seems self centered and even jaded.
