Oh man, where do I start with Mr. Adamo? Let us just say, if you are looking at this review for one reason, you are about to be on Team 81 next year... HAVE FUN, MATE!!! Mr. Adamo will work you hard a, and you will be thankful in the end. Stay on top of your work, and do more than he asks, exceed expectations and you will more than easily pass this class.
Nice but a bit confusing. He is one of those teachers you are scared of but once you get to know, love. I rather like his grading style. He doesn't believe in state testing and letter grades so that's cool.
He honestly was a good teacher. The things he teaches actually stick. Before his class, I couldn't even write a exceptional essay, and now I can write an A+ essay in about 2 hours. So grateful to have him as a teacher. He totally doesn't favorite lax players. He is mean at times, but only if you don't follow directions and he has kinda a short temper. Other than that, he was a good teacher.
He is hard and nice and gives you what you NEED not want but NEED to hear! Which to me is good but others not so much.
He tries to act all cool but he's not. Don't think he's cool on the first day...
Not only my teacher, Frank Adamo is a great coach and teacher. Always making us hardworking and he deserves the most respect out of any English teacher in our school
He 100% favors lacrosse players and dislikes everyone else. I was an A+ English student until I got into his class, and, trust me, I do NOT blame myself. His little "assistant" Mrs. Carol was a total witch and her scary legs distracted me all class. Worst English year EVER!
Amazing Teacher! He does NOT just like the lax boys.
Had favorites didn't like that didn't get anything done... Ever
He had favorites - he loves lacrosse players. He taught how to use a comma.... Do your work.
Mr. Adamo is strict, even mean, but he teaches you about the real world
He's a good teacher, he's just too full of energy and is very impatient. I don't HATE him, but I wish he was never my teacher. It would make my life less stressful. :) Luckily I have Mrs Morehouse for most of English and she is sooo much nicer and easier to talk with. :)
he is a really funny teacher, i was glad i got to be in his class last year. he really helped me ouut.
Although he is a great teacher and knows how to teach I feel that he does not grade fairly. For some kids english is not there strong suit and he does not understand this. For them it is almost impossible for them to hold a steady grade in the A range because he grades everyone like they are or should be english geniuses.
Says he works hard but doesn't finish grading assignments until 3 months later. Made us read Romeo and Juliet on our own and write an essay with no help from him at all. One of my least favorite class
I love Mr. Adamo. His multiple portfolios throughout the year sucked but my writing and editing skills improved sooooooo much.
very good english teacher! some of my best writing was in his class..stay on his good side
a great guy... he really helps you improve, and when he's not mad at you for following directions, he's really funny. Also wants to help us appreciate what we have in life
as a former 8th grade student/ lacrosse player for him, he is a strict grader but when he tells you something it sticks...he also has your back if you need anything at all!
He is tough to deal with, but he really helps with essay. Overall he is a good teacher and he can be funny at times.
Overall...Good guy, hard yes, scary, indeed, Would i poop if i saw him running at me, most likely
I had him for two years and I loved him. He gives a lot of work which is often annooying, but I learned the most I have ever learned before with him. His class is never boring he's so funny!
Not the greatest teacher, but knows what he's talking about.
Even though his drafting method is hated universally. He is actually one of my favorite teachers. He is very hard, but taught me a lot. The only thing thats a little weird is when he randomly rants...
He is very tough, although he can be cool at times the drafts that he assigns can be too much. I actually didn't like him at all.
Mr. Adamo is easily one of the best teachers i've ever had!!!
hes awesome. he really helps students to get ready for high school english
He's awesome i don't have him, but 1 day he came in 2 my classroom and broke every rule that Ms. Farina (my English teacher) left for him to follow, in reverse order. He's DA BOMB!
he'll respect you if you respect him, he gives a lot of homework but always gives a lot of time to finish the assignments, portfolios are hard
If he assigns 3 projects at once, it's ok. if you stay up till 4 in the morning to do work for his class, you'll be rewarded. The bad news is that 8th grade english doesn't matter.
Mr. Adamo is an excellent teacher and I hope he teaches for many more years. One of the coolest guys I have had the privilege of knowing.
This guy is great. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had.
Mr.Adamo is a great teacher. A "c" isnt a good grade but he makes u feel like its actually a good thing. His classes are hard though and I hate the portfolio!
I had him last yr and it was a great yr. My average was a A-B+. If u work hard and it shows u will get a good grade. SHOW THAT U CARE!!!!!!!!!
he is not a good teacher at all. He is not clear and not fair, He is not even cool.
I am upset about his grading system. I do not think it is fair. He is holding me backfrom reaching my tre potential and I do not have much respect for him.
Mr. Adamo is alright, it's just that he doesnt explain himself, i think he needs to be more prepared for class, and not focus on being cool
Some times doesnt know wut hes doin hes my lax coach though hes is way to strict especialy when he says this is a serius problem
the cow was a bit too much, but other than that he's good.
