Mr. Donde is the smartest man I've ever met! Listen to every word he says because not only is it useful, but it is 100% true. I wish every teacher was like Mr. Donde! Word of advice: don't argue with him; he is a Jedi Master!
Most helpful that AHS has seen. Humble but brilliant, there is no one better to prepare students not only college but for life. His straightforward, unpretentious attitude inspires young people. Donde must have a passion for teaching, because he knows how to capture a room! In a school rampant with unqualified and almost illiterate teachers, Donde "throws off the curve". Donde is real, witty, and makes learning truly enjoyable.
Amazing. Passed his AP lit class and got a 4 on the exam. He is a very good teacher and a fascinating person. He cares about his students' success and is passionate about what he teaches. Not only that but he actually cares deeply about Arlington high. Any student who has him is lucky and will learn a lot not only about lit but about life.
Donde is my favorite teacher ever. After slacking through my first three years of high school in regular lit classes, I took his AP class my senior year and don't regret it one bit.
Mr.Donde is the overall, the greats teacher i will ever have.
His a great teacher and he really helps you understand how to write essays well. But he is very difficult for AP. And he looks like the lead singer from System of a Down!
I love Donde i had him 10th and 12th grade good guy who really cares about his students, c/o 03
jokes are not the most brilliant, the manner in which he presents them is uncanny.
Mr. Donde is an excellent teacher, and it is obvious that the student of 3/31/03 is himself the poor judge of talent/ability, not Mr. Donde.
Mr. Donde is the kind of teacher who makes you THINK whether it is about Julius Caesar or his beans story. See when you THINK, you LEARN.
