An awesome teacher and person even if some of his jokes are kinda lame. Definitely one of the best teachers here at Oakland High if not the best. I am fortunate enough to have him as a teacher even though I didn't try hard enough in his class.

Legend has it that if you plant a seed in his mustache, plants will grow. By then you'd have enough food to harvest and feed your kids.

Arguably one of the best teachers at Ohigh. Cares very much about his students and their understanding of chemistry. Tries to teach it in a way that makes sense and is very easy. Regular chem was a blast! Tons of fun experiments! A sincere and hilarious teacher!

SOYIENCEEEEE! PSHHH, PSHHH, PSHHH! He's better than Bill Nye the Science Guy. Awesome teacher, awesome attitude, awesome experiments, awesome ties (he wears a different tie everyday, easily the highlight of my day!). He loves making fun of his students (in a good, joking way) and really tries to create a good class dynamic with everyone. TAKE HIM FOR CHEMISTRY, YOU WON'T REGRET IT.

Let's just say if we compared letsome to picillo, Picillo would be the better pick. He's helpful, takes hold of student's attentions, and shows willingness to help anyone.

Ahhh.. Piccillio. My second year. He's a great teacher but he's so busy so I rated his helpfullness quite low. However, that means he's a hard worker. So, he's an excellent teacher and does not waste time. I'll be taking his AP Chem class next year so it'll then be my thrid year. And yes, his 21-22 years of teaching experience pays off! 03-05.

He is an excellent teacher. I mean man, labs everyday, that is what students need. We need to deal with interacting not lecturing all day long. I think this is the reason why I leanred a lot from him because of all the labs we done. Most of the kids who gets F in his class still enjoys him because of all the fun labs and jokes that he makes.
