My name is Rudy Naraine. I had the pleasure of having Mr. Santamaria for US History and Govt in 1997, I believe. He is by far one of the best teachers I've ever had, and he left a lasting impresision on me. His enthusiasm and love for what he does comes across so much in his teaching style. He does his best to make sure you are ready for the regents. If you're prepared, do the work, and engage, you will benefit from what a teacher like Mr. Santamaria has to offer. He's the best.
Really prepares his students for the regents. Coolest teacher i ever had and one of my favorites at Sewanhaka. Truely brings history to life.
he lives in his own world, but can be seen in ours.frankly, the man is a legend. oldschool, but he knows (EVERY) random fact. "this aint 'chya talk show people". his sarcasm is just too clasic to hate
He was a teacher when I was there from '79-'83. I guess if he was so bad, he wouldn't be there this long. I think it is the quality of the students that have declined.
He is the main reason why people don't graduate and he brags about it.
I graduated in 86, you were a great teacher. Lou and I are still together because of you. Do you remember me?
He is a very tough teacher and goes off topic at times, but he is the smartest teacher i know... he is very good in his field
This guy sometimes is rude and too sarcastic. The first day of school he yelled at me for opening a window!tha being said,is a great teacher & sorta grows on u
Really good teacher...but i hate wat he did to me..put some extra absences on my attendence even thought i wasnt since i was warned by ms lidowsky
strict at times but mad cool, teaching us all the scams and how to get over on things!
He is always there to help you. The class is very interesting and I have learned alot
Mr. Santamaria is the smartest, nicest, coolest, greatest and best teacher
he makes me sick...he thinks he knows what he's talkin about and acts better than everyone but he just rambles garbage
eh yo...great teacher...he definately knows his material...although, i must admit, i still think he was some sort of undercover government agent in the past.
Santamaria's okay. He's really sarcastic and thinks he knows everything! He needs to chill out a little bit and stop over reacting all of the time.
Knows a lot about our government and life. Good to know some teachers are smart. For those who know...all i have ot say is... 3 dollars!
should be teaching 6th graders, not seniors, although some seniors act like theyre 11 so i guess it evens out
