Mr. D'Acosta is one of the most down to earth, honest, and humble people out there. His personality greatly reflects his career as a U.S. History teacher. He is by far one of my favorite teachers and knows exactly how to each a class effectively. Aside from a teacher, he is one of the most heart-warming, entertaining, and seriously content men and he learns to appreciate what he has and makes the best out of it.

Aw man how do I describe Jimmy D, alrighty so this dude screams at random points in time and constantly comments on what girls are wearing, no good. He makes TOns of sexist jokes and honestly I wonder if the reason he teaches sixteen year olds is because he still has the maturity of one. Peace out

Hrm is all I have to say about that man... Most of the answers to the Chapter Assignments are on Quizlet- took me a while to figure that out :/ also ask him good questions on "Ask Anything Day" as in start thinking about them in the beginning of the year it's worth it. He's funny sometimes I'll give him that. Always stay on your toes you never know when he will randomly scream- I'm surprised I didn't have stroke in that class.

Mr D'Acosta is the best teacher I've ever had such a funny great guy. He gives a lot of work but it's manageable espically because he gives a syllabus with every assignment on the first day of every marking period

I had Mr. D'Acosta for US History and Economics and he is one of my favorite teachers! He gives a good amount of work but it is definitely manageable. He is also a very fair teacher and doesn't just give away A 's. You really have to earn them.

He gives you all of the assignments on the first day of class. If you do the work at a steady pace, and do not leave all of the work to the last second, it is impossible to fail this class.

He is the oddest teacher that I have had. And he does not teach. If you have him for AP, be prepared to study hard for the AP exam because he did not prepare me
