Most entertaining teacher ever. Sooo smart and funny, super nice and really caring. It's a tough class but he will help you if you let him. He actually tries to connect with all his students. Enjoy his class while you can because I miss it
Nicest teacher. Very funny, and kind of a rough exterior, but goes out of his way to help you. Seems to really care about his students. Love him.
Not good at teaching. Very rude. Rather talk to other teachers then help you with a question.
He’s absolutely awesome. I didn't take his class seriously and that's among my biggest regrets from CHS. I graduated last year and wish I could go back just to do his class over and better. He's hilarious (I quoted him on a regular basis) and makes class fun. I found the how difficult at times (mostly because I decided to take a class that was too hard for me). My advice to any of his current students would be pay attention and enjoy his class. He's a great teacher and person.
Mr. Desmond is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the curriculum. His daily humor and sarcasm made the class actually enjoyable, for the most part. It's extremely important that you pay attention to everything he says, take good notes, and take the assignments seriously. If you work hard, he won't mind if you goof off a little in class.
Mr. Desmond is a teacher who can be incredibly serious in one moment and the next have the entire class busting a gut laughing. He's incredibly easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about the text. He's actually incredibly interested in what's going on in his students' lives and if you're upset he's totally willing to talk. Although I will say, he does have his favorites
Wow! Amazing teacher!
I had him this year, and he is honestly the greatest guy ever, so easy to talk to, I learned so much in his class, and if you love English and books then English with him will be the best part of your day. Funny, EXTREMELY knowledgeable and PASSIONATE about the material. Sometimes he goes semi-off topic, but he will always bring it back to the book. If you go to class, pay attention, and do the work, Desmond is your best friend; if not, he won't take any BS. He treats you like an adult.
Had a great time in English this year. One of the best teachers I have ever had, by far the best English teacher. He took the time to talk about things that were relevant. He is a deeply intelligent and kind person.
I honestly love this man. He never talks down to you and he's very patient. I think about the things he says in class all the time when I'm not in class. Best teacher in high school
Great guy and teacher. He keeps his class enjoyable and he is just a great guy in general. Got a 100 on my English Regents thanks to dezzz. Great teacher. You are lucky if you get him
He's the embodiment of a great high school english teacher.
The MAN. Funniest man, cool voice, runs like everything in the school. and he is easy to talk to.
He may be the best teacher in this school, if you get the honor to have him as a teacher, you may just love english after a year with him. He is a fantastic teacher and will go out of his way to help you as much as possible.
mr desmond. you're amazing. even if you dont remember my name at starbucks
Awesome teacher! Friendly and gave me a reason to reach for my goals. Class of 06
best teacher. funny. nice. helpful. made my english average go up :]
don't even have him and he helped me out with my world lit paper. much better teacher then what we got stuck with and i hope i get him next year, though i heard he gives a lot more work
Best teacher I have ever had. Also the funniest. Every class is like a stand up, but you still learn a lot
MEh, he's cool and all, but the weekly reflections and the whole Notebook thing is just plain stupid.
Best teacher by far...IB was so much better b/c of him. Learned a lot and he always cracked me up. Very funny man.
Should run for president. smartest person i know. kind of intense but in a good way. best class of the day by far
great teacher. very funny and entertaning. he is good at what he does.
amazing teacher. makes it possible to get by on sparknotes. funny and smart, a fair grader and upfront about tests very helpful on papers one of commacks finest (tho thats not saying too much lol)
great guy didnt make me feel garbage like the other english teachers i learned a lot and had fun and good good grades.
Probally the best teacher in th school and absolutly the fairest
Perhaps the best english teacher I've ever had. Desmonds a great teacher, but i didnt get my graded World Lit Paper 1 back or my Writers Notebook back until March of Senior year!
The best teacher I've ever had and an all around great guy.
Seems to be fake. Gives some students a very hard time and gives more punishment than actualy help. For others hes very helpful and many times can make the class interesting.
great teacher, great person. most dedicated teacher in school. always wants you to suceed and really cares
Mr Desmond is a Spectacular Teacher. Definitly one of Commack's Finest. =)
The best! Intelligent, interesting, very dedicated and generous with his time. He even helps you if you're not in his class
I really improved as a writer this year. Desmond always keeps it interesting and you always learn a lot. Always look forward to his class.
hes a big phony, never returns anything ever and grades on if he likes you or not. he pretends to be caring but he's only out for himself.
madd funny, helps out a lot and always tries to pass everyone...like every teacher should
He was the best english teacher I've ever had. He made class fun.
As I look back and think about my years in high school I can't even think about what it would have been like without him there to help me out.
AMAZING TEACCHER......ADDS COMEDY INTO TEACHING....I RESPECT HIM VERY MUCH SO I WOULDINT MIND DOING WORK FOR HIM
REally geay teacher, my favorite one in the hs so far, he mad me love a subject i absoultly hated before this year, but he really does need to get papers back f
One of my favorite teachers ever, without a doubt. He's just a great teacher in every way. And he's so funny...never fails to crack me up every (other) day...
Not in high school anymore, but Mr. Del was an awesome couselor and friend. He is one of the coolest people, someone who really relates to you. Awesome!!!!
Mr. Desmod is the best teacher. I didn't think I would like English in the high school but I love english the most!!! Thank you so much Mr. Desmod.
Mr. Desmond is awesome!! Funny, intelligent, not to mention extremely good looking
hes a pretty cool teacher. tries to connect with some students. lighten up on the projects though.
Inspirational. Best teacher I had in four years at CHS. Went the extra mile for me and prepared me for college and the real world. Very dedicated teacher.
We need more teachers like him. He really cares and he's excellent at what he does. Don't know why anyone wouldn't love him.
Mr. Desmond is a teacher that anyone can talk to. He treats his students with respect and as if they are on the same level as he is. Best teacher I've ever had
I think that he is a great teacher. He is so funny. He is the best.
wacky and too syrupy, so fake. Seems like he's putting on an act.
he never returns any papers. wonder if he reads them
He's the coolest guy. I hope he never lives our school.
def needs to pick up the slack or not take up so many new things at one time...
so understanding & a gr8 guy, the perfect counselor! he'll help you w/ nething!!
Del is definitely cool but some of his unhelpful side came out this year for me. He wasn't really supportive of my decisions that ended up working out.
The coolest person in the world!!! But is always late with appointments!!!!Ur the best!
I had him twice and I'm really glad I did. hez a great guy and a great teacher. he helpz me out a lot. he makez me feel better when I'm havin a trashy day.
Desmond is not only freekin hillarious but also a compassionate understanding person. He reminds girls that there are some good guys out there.best teacher def!
Del is the best. hes there for you no matter what or when. he loves his kids and he shows it
Great guy outside of class, but he plays favorites. He's a true teacher who teaches because he loves his job.
the best man ever he is so awesome! always running somewhere but always there when you need him too. He is very funny also.
hes by far one of the coolest teachers ive ever had, and i wish him luck in his career
Awesome teacher. After Murphy I thought I would neva like English again. His class is fun and educational. Who else can do good Gore impressions?
Mr. Desmond is cool, although not as funny as he thinks he is.
