Easily one of the best teachers I've ever had. There's been controversy on here from mainly female students. Being a female student, I can say with all honesty that Mr. Stanfa has taught us basic literature skills but also life skills. He's not afraid to admit his mistakes, which always come with a funny story. The class I looked forward to all day was with this guy, thank you Mr. Stanfa for making 50 minutes of my day bearable.

This guy is so awesome. Laid back class where you learn about the literature he's supposed to teach about. YOU WANT THIS TEACHER! He teaches freshman and sophomore English classes as well as several classes involving the production of the yearbook and the school newspaper.

Once you get past his jokes, he's helpful and really cares about his students. I learned so much from Yearbook class (if you could call it that..more like family) A223 was literally my second home.

He is really cool, he WILL pick on you, but know that most of it is sarcasm. He makes his classes entertaining.

Nice job teaching, keeps the class interesting enough to care. Try to keep the class away from politics - more english, less political mud-slinging.

Stanfa is the man. (Afnats is his name backwards, so when he makes a reference to a character called Afnats, he's talking about himself.)
