3 years after graduating i realized a lot of stuff mr. Parascos said was true. If you slack off in his class he will treat you like an adult harshly, simply because as a senior it will be the last time you can goof off with a safety net. In all my years k-12 Mr. P was one of the most important teachers i've ever had, as he tries to prepare you for what the real world holds. Many of my friends after graduating agree who had him agree that he truly cares about his students education and well being

mr. P is probably THE most caring teacher I've ever had. At times he may get emotional or exaggerate things but he has good heart. Unlike the other teachers who only strive to just teach the lesson, mr.p will try to really make an impact. Many people complain about his notebook,but don't realize that HE spent hours finding good notes, and instead of just copying notes like most classes he already did it for you. He always gives students multiple chances. As a teacher, no other can compete w/ him

Mr. Parascos was my teacher in the 90's, he was also the Dean at that time (don't know if he still is). He was a great teacher, I just wasn't a very good student, yet he tried really hard to get me to be one. I was young and stupid. The last time I saw him or even seen school for that matter was when I was in trouble by him for cutting his class and he tried to call my parents while we sat in his office. I held the receiver down and ran out.He followed me and told me God loves me.good man.

Easy class, and he's fun to be around when he's in a good mood, but he gets too personal with his students. He acts too much like a teenager. We're your students, not your best friends.

He needs to remember that we are just an honors class not an AP one. His deadlines tend to be a day after and when someone shows up missing a homework, its the end of the world. We started the year writing about how we could improve ourselves and what makes us happy. This is government, not some hippie therapy class. He also doesn't actually read the homeworks, if the font is pretty and it has a watermark he gives you a 94. He also spends a ridiculous amount of time bad-mouthing the government

mr. parascos is misunderstood, he is a very caring person but sometimes he doesnt always have the best way of showing it. honestly i believe he is a fair teacher and gives you what you deserve. He is defiently a teacher you can confide in. Although my only complaint is you never really know what kind of mood he will come in with day, he may be sweet and laughing or you may catch his angry and bitter side, other then that he is a great man, a man of loyalty and integrity.

He is very arrogant. He lies, telling us to pass up homework he never assigned. When we tell him that he didn't tell us about it, he insists that he did. He is phony above all. We don't learn anything and he makes us write "compositions" that have nothing to do with anything. The ONLY positive thing is that he is a ridiculously easy grader. Awful teacher.

I think Mr. Parascos is one of the most interesting teachers I've had so far. The funniest thing he does is accents. He starts off Enligh and ends up Jamaican! His tests are straight foreward and he tells you EVERYTHING you need to know. He's awesome.

Personally, I believe that Mr. Parascos is a very fair teacher, sometimes even overly generous. He basically spells out everything you need to know for his tests, so the only way that you can possibly fail is by lack of studying and his homework is a mana
