What a legend. What a privilege to have him as a mentor.
Mr.Parets can not be compared to anyone. He is a living legend. It will be hard when he leaves. I thank GOD I was able to have him as a teacher. Mr.Parets inspires me to do my best. I feel sorry for anyone who didnt have him as a teacher because you missed out. Mr.Parets I love you Thanks for everything - Eric Halton 2014
Him and Blum best teachers I ever had. He streches your mind, challneges things you thought to be once right, He is funny. Teaches well if you can handle a lecture format
great guy, great teacher, his teaching methods will enrich your mind
Best teacher I've ever had or ever will have. A living legend, really. If you befriend him, I guarantee you he will enrich your life more than you ever thought a teacher could.
awesome teacher, if you try in his AP gov class and don't say I dont know to any question and pay attention he is the best, if you do expect a Parets flip out
He has more of a positive influence on his students' lives than their parents do. Nearly all of my high school memories are of marching band. Awesome teacher and I'd recommend this class to anyone.
Paul Parets is a great guy but he is pure propaganda of his republican beliefs at school and also on facebook. Again, nice guy, but he pushes his political vendetta on alumni and students.
He is awesome. haha. Drumline always gets yelled at. Once he made us stand for the rest of band. But he is so cool.
For popularity there should be a rating higher than just 5 ;)
hes awesome. knows what he is doing and loves every minute of the job. Inspired me in soo many ways. its graet to be apart of the band. Mr Parets is tough and thats what a band is. He's great!
Best Teacher Alexis I duPont High School has ever had.:)
There is nothing bad to say about Mr. Parets. Through Band, to world history, to just being a great human being.
This man is by default the top rated teacher in the school. Mr. Parets' class is honestly the only class that I can still say, "That was the best year of my high school career."
Mr. Parets is more than a "Teacher of the Year" ~ he is truly a "Teacher of a Lifetime"! He continues to inspire me, 27 years "after" graduation!
Any class taught by Parets is bound to change your life. He unleashes hidden ability and potential in every student he mentors. Be prepared.
favorite teacher @ a.i. you haven't gone to ai unless you've had mr. p :)
You are missing out if you go your entire A.I. career without taking a class with Mr. Parets. He cares for his students and fills your day with fun. Don't get him angry.
Mr. Parets- Mr. P or P-dogg to us, isn't just the band director. He's a mentor for the whole school and he really cares about us. He's tough, fair and he respects us.
Mr. Parets will remain a mentor for life. He helps his students achieve success and greatness. He looks out for all the kids - the over achievers in all the bands and the students struggling. Awesome.
the man relates to his students more than any teacher in AI could ever do. he listens to people and acts like a real friend to people and pushes you to do your ultimate best.
He yells a lot, but without Mr. Parets, the only thing our band would be doing is the halftime shows, not going to Ireland or anything. Mr. Parets made the band what it is.
If you don't like this man, there is something wrong with you! Our band was AMAZING and this man was all to thank! Mr. P will hold a strong part in everybody's heart! <3!
if he tells you to do something, you better do it. but parets is awesome and controls the school
best teacher i've ever had. he does yell but he has to with a class or over 200 kids. he's respected by almost everyone and gives our band the reputation it has
Mr. Parets is the best teacher that AI has to offer. He inspires you to do well and makes the AI band what it is. We are the best thanks to him.
Best band director I could imagine. Takes a giant group of musicians and makes them sound great. Awesome man.
He has one and one ambition, to the best. What else is there? Paul Parets is AI.
THis guy could scare anyone. He always inspires and loves students. Influences in profound ways. To understand capabilities- listen to the band- it's the best
Mr. Parets can instill the power of God in you with his yelling. He barely teaches and that was all cool. As long as you listened, you pass.
he's a band teacher how clear and how helpful can he get?
P Dawg knows what he's doing. He yells alot, escpecially if you're not doing things right. Just do the right thing, and you're golden.
I wasn't even in band but even I felt the powerful effect of this great guy. Coached our Academic Challenge team to the finals one year. A very positive guy.
expects a lot, but one of the best teachers I've ever had
Had him for band and World History, he was willing to help you with ANYTHING
His speaches can get repetitive, but he's the best teacher I've ever had.
