Dennis was a great teacher. He is very kind and helpful. He actually teaches and as long as you read the assignments you will do well. As long as you don't have an attitude with him he is great.

I was Mr. Vellucci's student in his rookie season (1979-80). I showed my early '80s yearbook to a girl who is presently a Molloy student. Her face lit up like a Roman candle when she saw his old photo. I was stunned, just as I am by the glowing reviews here. He wasn't winning many popularity prizes back in the day. His lessons could be compelling and to the point, but he was prone to mood swings. Perhaps with experience he has mastered the art of chilling out.

I was Mr. Vellucci's student in his rookie season (1979-80). I showed my early '80s yearbook to a girl who is presently a Molloy senior. Her face lit up like a Roman candle when she saw his old photo. I was stunned, just as I'm stunned at the glowing reviews here. He wasn't winning popularity prizes back in the day. His lessons could be compelling and to the point, but he was prone to mood swings. Perhaps with experience he learned to chill out. Or maybe it's Prozac. (My money's on Prozac.)
