Mr. Sarris was hands down the best foreign language teacher I've ever had. First off, he has a great personality and keeps the class entertaining and exciting while still maintaining a solid level of learning. He explains all of his content beyond well, is insightful, and provides tests at a fair level for the class. Remarkably enough, he is one of the only teachers able to turn learning into an enjoyable activity. Everyone should be grateful to have him.

Sr. was the best ever...he's funny, speaks perfect Spanish (I think he's a native speaker) and really gets along great with the students...when he throws that ball around, watch out...it's the best part of the class...and you know, he once lent me $5 and never asked for it back!...Sr., I owe you! :)

I took Senor Sarris a while ago. He is the best Spanish teacher known to man. He is so funny and he will make you learn the easy way. He treats all people fairly and he looks like a superhero.

I remember when I had Sarris his first year teaching HG. He spent too much time trying to "be cool" and not enough time focused on teaching. We became friends the following year and he was a nice guy, probably just made a few rookie teaching mistakes.
