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
at first I didn't like him and taking notes all the time was boring. but once you get to the end of the year he chills out and now all we do is watch videos. ( law and you ).
Cool guy, real cool. Boring class, but that's not his fault, it's the curriculum's
He really needs to stop teaching his opinions as fact. Take what he teachers with a pinch of salt
he probably remembers me as being his worst student, but he was the best teacher ive ever had. he taught my class to question everything but in a fun way and i had personal probs and he tried to help
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.
The best teacher u will ever have makes Social Studies more interesting then it actually is!
He's a good teacher, and actually can make learning fun on occassion. Also hysterical.
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.
GREAT civics teacher, good world issues teacher...he's not the most organized but he's a good guy and willing to work with you if you're having a hard time.
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.
i like mr colandrea. hes a cool & interesting guy. hes not a great teacher, but he has a lot of cool & funny stories
i think people who say hes the worst teacher just don't get his teaching style...its harder that it looks to educate little punks...he really cares about his students
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.
MR. C is the freaking man, I loved his class last year!
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.
sometimes forgets to teach stuff that the other classes learn, but has is priorities on his students.
he's a really nice guy and tries to make class fun but his test are kind of random(in all fairness to him...he's a first year teacher without a textbook)
