He made school bearable every day. He was the best teacher I have ever had. Makes learning fun. Also knows almost everything about life.
This man sparked a passion for learning in me. Amazing teacher...cares about what he is teaching and is extremely passionate. All around and amazing experience having him as my teacher, one I will never forget.
Mr. Fili is the greatest teacher on Earth.
Joe Fili inspired in me a love of learning, and a love of my fellow man. He took me under his wing in a way that no teacher has done before or since. He was a genuine scholar of the human condition, and taught me how to study, question, and love my fellow man and the nature of our lives. He was a sage as much as a classroom teacher. Today, after two degrees in history and a decade in education, I can credit Joe Fili as my greatest teacher and as a great example of how to live a life well lived.
I went to an elite liberal arts college and a top tier law school and Mr. Fili is still my favorite teacher ever. Just about every word he said predicts opinions that people have almost twenty years since I graduated CBA. At the time my parents thought I was crazy.... At least until my brother had him and they met him....
By far the most influential, thought provoking and funniest teacher in the department. The man was brilliant and showed an unparalleled love for teaching.Such a shame to see him leave the way he did.
I took "Advanced Philosophy Seminar" with Mr. Fili in the spring of my senior year back in 1982. I still recall him as the best teacher I ever had! He inspired a love for learning and seeking.
hahahahahaha fili is the funniest man on the face of the planet
his MDC and English classes are great...nothing that is so is so!!
sophomore english was the best class ever. Yeah Buddy!
MDC is just an awesome class. I was excited for school every morning because of that class. I'm pretty sure I learned more there than in all my other classes combined.
sophomore english with fili was probably my most favorite class ever. one of my sentences was put in th fall lineup, but i still got a 95.

Although it's been over 30 years since I attended Mr. Fili's class at St. John Vianney HS, it is clear that he was one of my finest teachers throughout 17 years of education.
Easily one of the best teachers around. He can make any topic interesting and informative. A smart, intelligent, funny guy.
Mr. Fili is a great english teacher he brings the subject to a whole new level.watch out on the tests.Or your parents will be a getting a nice present. From the one with 9 lives.
