Mr. Restifo is a very good teacher on teacheing the aspects but he sucks he gives way to much homework and castel learning and half the questions on castel learning he didnt teach! He has a very very annoying voice with a lisp and tends to raise his voice alot. He wears the same stupid sweater everyweek and thinks he hot as hell which is just sad. He grades way to hard and thinks that no one is good enough for his class!! This is just the 8th grade

His tests are easy but he grades really tough. You can get an A on every test but still get a B for the quarter, even with good homework. He's also really boring and gives out warnings if you whisper like one word.
