I believe that Malchiodi is a great teacher. He actually talks about stuff that matter..life. He talks a lot about aspects of life and tieing it to the books that we read in class. He pretty much, talks about what we need in life, not just regular english stuff. He jokes alot but is very strict on deadlines. He gives you a good amount of time to do the projects but he doesnt accept late work unless you have a valid excuse. Overall a great teacher. 10/10 would take his class again lml

His class was interesting, but his workload was unreasonable. I feel like I was in an AP English Honors class and I certainly did not sign up for this. If I knew the amount of coursework beforehand, I would have never enrolled in his class.

He'll make fun of all the students who has a low grade in his class which is below 85. The latecomers miss out some quizzes and end up not feeling like coming to school anymore. He seems promising and nice in the beginning of the school year, but his workload is extremely long. He always gives you unnecessary work that takes all night to finish. I have a friend who skips his class because that person found it pointless in going since he's just going to make fun of that person in some way.

His workload is moderate. I just personally didn't like him. He has favorites, which I absolutely hate about teachers. He always makes fun of the "bad" students, which always discourages them. He's extremely strict with deadlines and latenesses. He gives pop quizzes which are super annoying and doesn't let latecomers do the questions they missed. His attitude is off-putting. The good thing about his class is that his talks are super engaging and will prepare you for any tests or assignments.

He purposely ousts students for their mistakes. He doesn't accept excuses like absences either - at least not for me. He fakes being a good person, but he's horrible. His work load is massive too. But, he does have easy tests and he is great in regards of colleges.

He tries to be a good, caring person but honestly just comes across as overbearing and annoying. Needs to lay off his ego and whole "being there for the students" persona because at times it is just completely inappropriate. You cant pressure students into revealing their secrets and personal life to him and way more often than not we DONT want to. Theres a line that teachers shouldn't cross, and although you have good intentions, seriously stop.

This is not regular english. His workload is insane and is more intensive than an AP class. His work requires 10000% precision. The workload is outrageously excessive. Your assignment will take you hours to complete. His tests are the bane of your existence. Overall, if you get into his class, just transfer to AP english so you can at least get a 1.1 curve. This class is more demanding than any other class.

one of my favorite teachers of junior year, was extremely helpful in college applications and everything else! his tests are fair to hard, comparing how much you study and understand. make sure to read books every night so you don't fail the quizzes. i love his class, one of the best in tech :)

Probably the best class I had in Tech. Very influential teacher who cares a lot about his students. Class work isn't crazy hard (he goes easy with the seniors)and for the most part, I found to be enjoyable. He goes out of his way to help with college applications and was personally a huge help to me. Class discussions were always interesting and thought provoking. He himself is very knowledgeable and worldly and has an interesting persona.

Oh what I would do to have him back as a teacher. Sadly his mother became ill and he had to leave us :'(. He was very good at teaching and he went beyond teaching. Everyday in class it seemed like a different setting. He had his own style of teaching which was to help us. He really cares about students and their successes. Although he does make fun of some (not entirely offensively) because of their unwillingness to learn. Also, the quizzes almost everyday made me get an 85 :( READ THE BOOKS!

Absolutely the best. I have literally nothing bad to report about his class. It was fun, I learned a lot about English and about life. He's a great teacher, as well as a great person. Definitely superhuman. He made the college process so easy for me, and I have no idea how he gives his kids such individual attention because... seriously? Have you been to the college office?! It's a zoo in there, but he is super friendly and organized and knowledgeable and just amazing.

I don't know how anyone can say anything bad about Malchiodi. He is one of (if not the only) my favorite teachers. He poses a lot more thought-provoking questions than other classes I've had and I enjoyed putting in the effort to complete my assignments. (This coming from a tv/internet addict.) He's approachable and somewhat naive about people. If you're applying to college, make sure to visit his office often and to use his services!

He was my brother's guidance counselor. My brother learned a lot from him, he gave my brother very helpful tips, because of Mr.Malchiodi, he's going to be a doctor in 4 years. Thank you Mr.Malchodi for enlightening my brothers future with your advice! Everything my brother learns goes to me, and if i can make my dream of being a bacteriologist, or a taxonimist, or a lawyer, all the credit will go to Mr.Malchiodi. Once again, thank you. If anyone needs help anytime, don't be scared to drop by Mr.M's office.

Mr. M... I had him last term, but I have the other honors teacher now. You have no idea how badly I'm dying to transfer into Mr. M's class. So many people complain about the workload, but just do it, and you'll be fine. It's not that hard. And TRUST ME, the discussions in his class are most definitely worth it. I miss your class, Mr. M. I feel as if I'm going to explode if I stay in my current class; seriously, my brain is racking... :-(
