Jan 23, 2012 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. Flag Rating

Aug 18, 2011 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!

Jan 15, 2011 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!!!!

Jul 29, 2008 Mr P was one of the greatest teachers I had in school. He loves to teach and it really shows. His students always take something new away with them, even if they have to really work for it. By no means an easy teacher, but well worth the work. Flag Rating

Mar 30, 2008 Great teacher. Just don't get him mad! He's like a grizzly bear. You will fear for your life, but you'll come away thinking "hey, If I can survive that, I can survive anything" and then you'll go look for a bear and get it mad, and then emerge victorious. Flag Rating

Dec 29, 2007 He is my favorite teacher. I look forward to going to AP every day. He expects a lot from students and gives lots of notes. He is not easy. However, he makes class interesting and enjoyable(even when talking about the 30 years war and the 1848 revolutions). He assigns a lot of essays and you WILL curse his name every Sunday night/Monday morning while you are writing them. You want him for a teacher regardless of if you like history. Flag Rating

Aug 30, 2007 He is by no means easy. You'll go by every day wish you had never signed up for his class. And then in the end you'll never regret a day of it because you realized you had just taken a course with one of the best teachers in the school. I've yet to meet a person who didn't like him.

Apr 28, 2007 The only reason why he doesn't have straight 5s across the board is because he teaches an AP and two Honors classes. He does not make it easy, but believe me, everyone walks out of that class having learned something. Flag Rating
