ok so i'm in his class right now and one thing you have to understnad about him. He may make some jokes and stuff but.... HE is no funny buisness. He also doesn't like when you help other students. But he's a good teacher but not personality wise

It is nearly impossible to stay conscious during his powerpoints - although, he is well-conserved and fairly intelligent. Although, he persistently picks on one student. I advise he should stop that because it gets quite annoying and I feel pity for that student. While DeFarno is moderately competent, he is quite aggressive and irritating. Best of luck.

My Story-
I have had a 4.0 GPA throughout all of middle school, until 4 quarter came along. On a final essay, and clearly I missed the point. I got a 72%, bringing me down to a B+. Asked him multiple times "what did I do wrong? How could I have fixed it?" I even asked for extra credit MULTIPLE times. Not even a thought. Acted inhuman and unforgiving through the whole process. It was the last grade of the year, so I was set at a B+ killing my 4.0 GPA. Ruined my whole view of him and his class.
