Palermo is maybe the best history teacher I've ever gotten. If you try and study hard you can get an A. He's super lenient about lots of things and presents himself as an incredibly likable guy. I don't think I've met a single person who dislikes him

Engaging Leadership and Diversity class, great ice breakers, projects, and games that we could play. We learned to see the world on a different aspect of diversity in race and sexual orientation differences.

He was probably the best teacher I has in high school. So nice, SO smart, so passionate about his subject, and so clever in his assignments, he really made me love Government, a class I thought I would hate. Great great great teacher!

Super sweet and easygoing, but don't think that means he's soft intellectually--he knows SO MUCH about government, and whenever someone asks a question, he takes the time to go in-depth on the subject so everyone learns something. He's also a great debater and knows exactly what questions to ask, so you can't get away lightly with an unprepared presentation. At the same time, he wants you to learn, hence all the extra credit. He's a fantastic teacher.
