I don't have this teacher, so I'm basing my judgment on the comments of other students (and perhaps I shouldn't), but it seems to me that talking about politics and disrespecting the Vice President of the United States--if these allegations are true--has no place in a public school. It's not professional, and it's not fair to students with different opinions who become reluctant to voice them for fear of alienating or angering the teacher. Politics have no place in a public school, period.

Cocchiarelli is the worst teacher to get because he can really hurt you emotionally. He can make you feel inferior. It would help if you are indifferent.

Definitely picks favorites, TLA people. Not very clear, makes great observations. Knows when your AP English essay is bad. Not great preparation for the AP.

He's a brilliant man, I'll give him that. All the books he mentions in passing is evidence. He's more on lecture than teaching which is good college prep.

he doesnt always speak in away that people can understand what he means and he thinks that we will just know. He can be nice once in a while, but for the most part he's too hard and critical on people.
