One of the best and most experienced teachers at algonquin. Every assignment he gives us has a clear purpose, which is most of the time to prepare us for the ap exam. I have never liked english as much as i do this year because we actually learn useful rhetorical writing skills. By far my favorite teacher and an awsome guy.

Alera was all right. Even his AP courses were pretty easy, but he chose favorites in class and didn't even know some of his other student's names.

Mr. Alera is the hidden gem of Algonquin. He is extremely knowledgable in both literature and theater. But most importantly, he cares so deeply for his students, even the ones who give him hell. He will go an extra 100 miles for anyone who is willing to tell him that they need help, even when he already has a million things on his plate. He is working in a school where he is extremely undervalued, but he remains there because he loves his students. A truly amazing man.

Very unique teaching style. Makes the class seem easy, then grades relitavely hard. Class is rarely boring, and he is very understanding. However, he is very paranoid about students cheating.
