Mr. Perrota is definately amazing. Although he is very laid back, he is not strict. He has his rules but all teachers do. Thankyou for being there for me Mr. Perrotta. Your exams were difficult and simple, and i loved that all the homework was all year was notecards and video and notes. I will come back and visit you!! Your amazing!

He's fine but he teaches us very subjective stuff and but can be funny. I think hes layed back but can get stressed out a lot about the smallest things. He is not lazy, he seems like he spends a lot of time preparing each class. I forgot to sign his student contract and he talks to me after class about how its 8th grade and GT and that its not acceptable. I told him that i would bring it in tomorrow, even though i promissed him i would bring it in the same day.

He is the best, most awesome, and knowledgable teacher I had ever and will ever have. He deserves a award for all the time he's spent doing things creatively in class. He teaches in a different way that anyone who's had home will understand. Love the class. If you do get him, embrace every second you have with him, you will regret it if you don't. -Joseph Kinney Class of 2016

So far, this guy has said really inappropriate things in class. He explained the origin of the 'f' word to an eighth gradr class, and told them that evolution is a bogus theory. What's up with this
