Hi is a good teacher, but he is a little biased towards the girls, he is pretty mean to the guys. He is a fun guy and he loves his job! I don't think he is a bad teacher, but I don't think that he is amazing either.

Ok, he doesn't play favorites, but some kids including myself love him! He reaches out so much! It is hard to do good in his class. I know everyone just wants a 100 in chorus, but it's hard, he has to hear you if you want that grade. Good for me because I love singing and it's fun. Depersio loves his job, and is literally a teen trapped in a mans body. He has so much energy Jesus you should see him at concerts, he does gymnastics, I swear

Mr. Depersio sure is swell. i would not go so far to say that i adore him, or that I'm his best friend. He's a nice enough guy that when you get to know him you could like him and he could like you. i love him but he also plays favorites. i think the only reason why he does that though is because those are the students that reach out to him and talk to him. But he's a great guy and he works so hard to be who is he and make sure that his students are educated. Thanks!

He was cool and all, but the cult following he has is only among those who he crowns as "favorites". He is very autonomous, which can be both delightful and frustrating. Mixed feelings about him.
