Well Mr. Guastella, It's been a very long, and rewarding, and fulfilling 4 years, I've had 4 of the most exciting, and entertaining years of my life, and without all of your hard work, dedication, and effort put into us, not just me, but all of the science research students, none of our successes would be possible and I definitely wouldn't be going to 2 ISEFS. I always hope you remember me, um, going to ISEF in you know one of those little scooters, and driving around.
- Love, Jinyu Wu

Mr. Guastella is a very knowledgeable man, who expects everyone to meet his standards of perfection. If you don't you will not survive the class. He expects everything to handed in on time and will yell at you if its late. He is very demeaning and talks down to everyone, if you ask him a question he makes you feel stupid for asking it. He is extremely knowledgeable though and helps a lot with your research

Demanding, knowledgeable but often hot headed, unapproachable. Tends to single out a particular student for the year and remark on their learning abilities.

Mr. Guastella is the most evil man I have ever met. He is arrogant and has a severe case of Napoleon complex. He will grade you based on whether or not he likes you. Which is very, VERY rare. He ruine

If you were picked for his course, they'd expect that you put out your best work. This guy wants things in ON TIME, and you better be competent.

Not so popular, and bad memories of painful critique on presentations, but when I think back to the class ... it was maybe the only place I learned something real at MHS. The skills you learn are essential to real life.
