If you do your work and you show effort in your work, then Calabro will reward you with a high grade. The kids who promote easy A's are the kids who put effort in their work. Calabro offers a unique personality as a teacher and is always fun to talk to. Calabro's unique personality definitely makes it easier to go see him if you ever need help and I've even gone to him for writing advice during a year I didn't have him as a teacher.
He's amazing and I had a great year in that class. I would love to have him again next year!
I feel that he is definitely a great guy that can truly teach the subject well....it sure beats the alternative. Also, i actually learn something in his class instead of complaining about how hard it is, and while other students can get other more difficult teachers...it's the luck of the draw!
some students taking the same course but with a harder teacher complain that it's not fair that calabro's students get easy a's and that's true. but still, he has really helped me develop a passion for the subject and i've grown used to having to do a timed writing on the spot based on the reading i did last night
The man, the lagend that is Joe Calabro was one of the best teachers i've ever had. Turned a science kid into a legit reader and writer. Def one of pomp's best.
Truly an awesome teacher. Genuinely nice guy and very knowledgeable.
One of the best teacher's I ever had. One of the funniest too. I remember during the early fall and spring months he would trick people by yelling out, "HEY LOOK IT'S SNOWING!'. Half the class would immediately turn their heads to the window and see nothing but sunshine and 70 degree wheather. He did this ALL the time. It was hilarious!
Mr. Calabro is probably the coolest English teacher I've had! He frequently makes us all crack up with his funny phrases... I really enjoyed his class!
Calabro is awesome. His class is so easy. I haven't actually learned anything in his English class. The quizzes are easy and he doesn't actually read them; he just skims down and puts checks. This is the same with his papers. He grades only on spelling and grammatical errors. Dicerolls are a big waste. He assigns a lot of "crapwork" to do which takes a long time to complete and is usually never collected. Therefore his class seems like a waste of time and energy.
CALABRO IS THE MAN!!! soo cool and a very skilled teacher!
Mr. Calabro is the best teacher at Pomperaug! You actually learn things in his class!!! W00t Go Calabro!!!
He makes creative writing more comfortable as a class and gives the school a better learning environment. By far, the best class ever!
cool guy, yet hes too easy. i cant say i learned all that much in freshman english
CALABRO IS THE MAN!!! Extremely helpful and clear. Very fun and brilliant.
This man is brilliant, and rocks. Callabro dominates English.
Best teacher EVER, he even lead me to my job... Thanks for everything!
I could just sit and listen to Calabro talk for hours. "I'd rather eat glass" Ugh what great wit!
by far the funniest and the best english teacher at pomperaug...he's hilarious!!!
Mr. Calabro's the best! He's the coolest teacher I've ever had second to my science teacher in 8th grade!
