Mr. Paccione was one of the best teachers I have ever had at Prep! It's difficult to describe just how great he was in 500 words. Love that man so much! I'm so beyond grateful to have been one of his students (:
Mr.Paccione is possibly the most amazing man I've ever met. During the time that I had him, I was going through a very terrible time, and his words changed my life. There is so much to learn from him I only wish there was more time. Mr.Paccione, if you're reading this, I'm glad we shared our passion for the blues (you should know who I am now), and I thank you for everything you've taught me.
Mr. Paccione is not only the best teacher I ever had, he is the nicest teacher in the whole world. He cares about everything student. He believes that learning out of the textbook isn't as beneficial as learning from reading. His tests aren't hard if you read. I can not describe to you Mr. Paccione in less than 500 characters because honestly he is what every teacher should aspire to be.
Best. Teacher. Ever. Period.
I cannot put into 500 characters the profound impact that my 11th grade English teacher had on my existence. Yes, existence. High school was a tough time for this young introvert. As I went through the weeks/years, I saw my life heading into an anonymous factory, being just another soul on this planet. Mr. Paccione reached out and changed my trajectory with his passion for literature. I named my son Nicholas because this man changed my life. - Jesus Diaz Jr. (summer reading score: 3) Thank you.
By far not only the best teacher, but one of the most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. There are no words to describe Mr. Paccione.
Only a special kind of person can change your life in such a short period of time- but he makes it his job to, by inspiring you. He taught me that I was intelligent, creative, imperfect, and can be wh
I had only one year in St. Francis Prep and it was not very successful Mr. Paccione was the only teacher that got through to me. He was so engaging and passionate. An amazing teacher!
Probably the best teacher I've ever had and one of the best people I've ever known.
He is one of the reasons I am an English teacher! Thanks, Mr. Paccione!
How can anyone complain about this man? He embodies what a true teacher is- he brings the literature to life with his passion and he sincerely LOVES his job & his students. Pray and FIGHT to have him!
Always came in grumbling--If you hate your job, retire. Shows preference, which polarizes students. Grades subjectively. He made me & many others feel HORRIBLE, & we were honor roll students! Hate him
best teacher EVERRR!!! history is my favorite subject but my god this is my favorite class...junior year english will probably always be my favorite class!!!
By FAR the best teacher I have ever had. I've learned so much in English this year about literature and life...he's really cool and makes you actually want to read. I could stay in his class all day..

i have to agree, Mr Paccione is the most amazing teacher. He not only taught books but he taught about life. Junior year English class helped me get throught some rough times. <3
i have one thing to say...he is the man and cares so much about his work and students
Undoubtedly one of the best teachers in Prep, or any high school for that matter. So passionate a man and inspirational, and always a great experience during classtime.
awww! i have Mr Paccione right now and A period is definitely one of the best parts of my day. he's one of the sweetest techers ever and im gonna miss him soooooooo much next year
possibly one of the few teachers hat can break a sweat while teaching. he is nothing but heart and soul and wants nothing mo than for us to learn an respond to
I had him for 2 out of 4 years, wasnt the easiet teacher but the best class ive ever taken. Truly opened up my ability to world of English. Thank you
YOU'RE TOO LOUD!! Every class starts with this, but when he starts teaching, the room is silent(usually). I've never seen a teacher pour his heart out like him.
Mr. Paccione is a wonderful man. Passionate about his teaching and truly inspirational. His class was one of the most enjoyable experiences.
Must have read Gatsby and Huck Finn a hundred times since his class...didn't do well, don't think he liked me much, but I liked him.
If everyone had Mr. Paccione as a teacher, the world would definately be a much better place!! He's the best!!!
Alas, I shall never hear his sweet voice teaching evermore...loved the way he brought Huck Finn to live. The man is animated,clever, insightful. A+
Mr.P is definitely the nicest teacher I've ever had. He's extremely helpful and he makes learning fun. Everyone should have a teacher like him at least once.
My favorite teacher in prep...acts out every book...so funny
Paccione is one of the coolest dudes I've ever met! AMAZING teacher. He loves what he does, and it shows...I'll never forget this guy!
He wrote in my yearbook 14 years ago that I would do something special with my life.That's the type of guy he was,inspiring, caring, and a great teacher.
I have never met a teacher who is so passionate about what he is teaching. Going to his class felt like having a free period. And his stories are priceless.
Great English teacher, helped me to overcome years of hatred of english due to bad teaching, and appreciate english and writing.
I DONT HAVE HIM, BUT MY COUSIN DOES AND IVE TALKED TO HIM B4! HES AWESOME!!!!! I CANT WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR WHEN I HAVE HIM! MR. P'S THE BEST
One of the best teachers of all time. Freshman year he read my story in front of the whole class and always reminded me to believe in myself. A blessing to Prep
He is the most amazing teacher i ever had. I learned more from him in 1 year than i have throughout my entire lifetime: not just about english, but about life.
HES THE BES TEACHER..HOW HE GETS ALL INTO HIS BOOKS AND EXPLAINS THINGS SO WELL PLUS STILL HAS TIME TO JOKE AROUND WITH THE CLASS ..THE BEST
There are no words to describe how cool this man is. He sweats and lives out all the books he teaches. I will never ever forget him.
he's my favorite teacher of all time! and i already graduated college
