You can tell that Mr. Alisna is a passionate teacher and loves what he does, but sometime he lets his mood rule his teaching. That not only stresses himself out, but also his students and freaks us out about our grades. Harsh at times, he never stops pushing us to be better. Can sometimes, though bring out the worst.
