In the beginning of the year, he seems very strict and hard but he is an overall good teacher. He's always available for help and is very good at helping you with anything

He really needs to stop teaching his opinions as fact. Take what he teachers with a pinch of salt

I didn't know how good he was when I had him. Now I miss his classes. May seem hard, but you really learn something from his class. Great guy too.

Mr. Colandrea is awesome. He is hysterical when he's fooling around, yet teaching you something you'll remember only because he did something funny. It NEVER gets boring. Gotta love his classes.

Great teacher. He makes a boring subject interesting. Very helpful in-class on answering questions. Uses lots of video clips to reenforce class topics.

I had him last year. He always managed to call on me when I was spacing out so I think he thought I was stupid ha ha. Pretty cool guy but a better civics than world issues teacher.

Mr. Colandrea was pretty much the worst teacher I have ever had. Let's just say he has a degree in recreation. I learned more from the person sitting behind me rather than him.

A teacher in a civis class should be more of a moderator, and keep his opinions out of it and encourage talk amongst the students. By pressing his views he abuses his position.

Mr. Colandrea is definately an awesome guy. I didn't like him at first- and I still think that he shouldn't talk about his personal political opinions.
