Mr. Incorvaia has changed my life, before I actually joined his class and I was a 10th grader watching this intimidating man give a speech on the million requirements he has for his class I was terrified. But after you actually spend time with him in the classroom you'll realize that he is kind and always there when you're confused about something (you just have to communicate that to him!). Many people judge him based on his intimidating shell and sophisticated manner but he is so much more.

amazing teacher, but not the type of teacher that is necessarily your friend. he can be condescending, but rightfully slow as he is very intelligent. sometimes it's a bit too arrogant, but a small price to pay for the one of the most intellectual classes at hf

I personaly think Mr. Incorvaia is an amazing teacher. He is extremley brilliant and has a good way of getting things across to people. I can not wait to spend the rest of the year with him and learn lots of new ways to be a good student.

Horrible teacher ! He hates most kids. I couldn't stand the way he talked to others and the things he wrote on others papers were demeaning and not constructive criticism. The only thing he did well was read parts of books out loud in character voices. I can't believe he is allowed to be in contact with students.

I believe that Mr. Incorvaia is the best educator in the Harborfields School District. His class inspired me and many of my classmates, and made me into the writer and the person that I am today. Mr. Incorvaia does not only teach about English, he teaches students about life, and continues to inspire and teach students far beyond when they have him as a teacher. If you have the chance to take his class and are willing to work hard, it will be completely worth it in the end.

Yes he is a good teacher, but I don't think that he is one of the nicest teachers to walk the face of the earth he can be nice, but he usually is not.

Honestly one of the best teachers I've ever had. He doesn't sugarcoat anything, and he seems to know at least something about everything. I'd take his class again, and I'd probably learn even more.

Truly a great English teacher if you're willing to work. He's often brutally honest but don't take it personally. He's only trying to make you a better student. Take the class!

One of the few teachers that makes English (or any subject for that matter) interesting. I was never bored in his class and he often brings up good discussions. A little conceited but aren't we all?

He encourages creativity and If you have a problem with his grading or methods he actualy listens and takes it into consideration. (his humor is a little week) but he means well and is a great teacher

One of the worst teachers I ever had. He judges writing based on whether it agrees with the "right opinion" (his), instead of encouraging free thinking. Educator of the week! HAH

He is arrogant and self centered. He has little appreciation for other opinions and holds his in the highest regard. He is a pompous community theater 'actor' who views the world as inferior to his intelligence and wit.
