You will either love or hate this man. He demands a lot from you, and a night with no homework from him is rare. However, he really does prepare students for the expectations professors have in college. He really does want you to exceed if you show that you care about his class, and if you work hard enough, you are guaranteed not to fail. Don't expect an easy A from him. If you work hard, he will notice! Don't take this class if you expect an easy senior schedule!
He has the kind of tough love for a mother who will whoop you just for not picking up your sock
No one has mixed feelings about Mr. Porcelli. You will either love him or you will hate him. I personally loved him. I'm a thick-skinned person and could take his rather harsh criticism, However, his criticism is what has made me the writer that I am today. His class is incredibly difficult, but also incredibly rewarding. I would not be the student i am If he did not push me. He is not only the best teacher i have had, but my favorite. I recommend his class, but warn you, be prepared to work!
By far my favorite English teacher yet. Yeah a lot of people say that they hate him and wonder why anyone likes him but honestly the only reason why people don't like him is because he actually cares about teaching the students and although at times it doesn't seem like he cares... he really does. He doesn't take the bs that we all try to pull on other teachers because that's not how life works, you have to work for your grade in life so might as well start it off in the classroom.
Horrible experience. Never want to take his class again. I do not understand why everyone says he is a good teacher, he's just a really mean person.
Mr. Porcelli is one of the hardest teachers i have ever had, but is both the greatest teacher hae ever had, and my most favorite teacher i have ever had. He is extreamly demanding but i know i would
Great Teacher but hard and demands that you work hard.
pssh, he love me. But really great teacher. Teaches you a LOT and is hilarious!
By far one of the best teachers you will ever have. Hard, but it's definitely worth sticking it out.
one of the best teachers i've ever had. dont be afraid to open up and be yourself, you'll get used to him. he's class is VERY tough but you learn so much. he's also a very tough grader
without a doubt, best teacher you'll ever have. theres no words to describe his class; its amazing. he really cares about his students and forces them to look into themselves. ill nevr 4get his class!
he is definately a hard teacher but one of the best that you will ever have. His class is really funny and you'll have a lot of fun.
a great teacher that more importantly than text book information teaches you so many valueable life lessons.
MR. Porcelli is one of the best teachers I have ever had. . He doesn't take anyone's bs,and you'll be rewarded for that in the long run
Mr.Porcell1 is really cool. He likes to make fun of people and he tells really funny.
hes tough but sometimes funny likes sir-mix-a-lot and lou bega..likes fish..and he picks favorites..grammar commi
One of te bet at DHS, one of the few who actually CARE about what they do, and does what he can to give us the best education he can.
He is tough but fair. unlike many others he teaches. dont give up on him, you'll learn
You will learn a LOT if you put some work into it. Don't take his jokes seriously. If he cracks on you a lot, crack back.
Very tough... but get to know him and he's great... he gets the real stuff out of you. He is upfront and real. Never any lies, very straight forward.
