01/23/12 - Mr. Politelli is by far the best teacher I have ever had or ever will have in my life. He sparked my interest in history and now I am taking history courses in college (even if they don't quite satisfy pre-requisites). He is a must. I will remember the two courses I had with him forever. My Eastern Civ and my Studies of War because I learned so much and had so much fun doing it. A couple of friends and I plan on going back to visit this year. Show More Show Less
08/18/11 - best teacher i've ever had. Just finished 4th year of college, and i would have been lost without him. I was able to do 5 page research papers in an hour b/c of him. Also visited him at TG for the first time last fall which was fun. Definitely taught me a lot, not just about school, but about life. take eastern civ, and with a more philosophical approach, you will walk out a new person. but dont get outta your seat before the bell rings. also, look@the walls, beatles=best band ever!

I'm in my senior year of college and Politelli's teaching style definitely prepared me for college. I took Western Civ AP and Eastern Civ honors and Studies of War with him and the essays we had to write definitely helped me for college. I hear I have a 5 page essay now and I'm like "EASY!"
Anyway I miss this guy! he was AWESOME!!!! Show More Show Less
