I dont think I've ever had a teacher who cared more, who made me work harder. He's not what I would call easy, but he is transformative, like I think top college teachers would be.

Wow. So Abreu retired. I was his student back in the 1980s. He was the best teacher, and inspired me to keep studying history. He must be in his sixties now, but back then was a young dude whom all the kids loved. Looks he remained loved for decades more. I feel old! I also feel grateful to have had a great, influential teacher like him. Enjoy retirement, Abreu! You've earned it.

It's too bad he retired but he was the best history teacher ever. He didn't sugarcoat anything, and he had a huge passion for teaching. I learned alot in his class

I'm just automatically giving all five stars. This man KNEW his subject and taught it with a passion unparalleled. It's a shame he retired because I wish he taught all of my history classes.

I'm so glad to see he is still teaching. I had him back in the day and by the measures parents look at (and I am one now), I turned out pretty well. Ivy grad. school, full scholarship to a good college. If you read this, Mr. A, I am so grateful!

He is a clique kind of teacher who can be alright at times, down right annoying sometimes, or just have little tantrums in class. He is a box of three chocolates. His class was alright.

Abreu actually made learning history fun. He is very easy-going but at the same time he is serious about his students learning the material. You will do well in the class if you do the reading and ace his Grande Madres.

Not easy, but very interesting lectures and readings. One of my best experiences in high school, and probably why I became a historian! Hands down the coolest teacher you'll ever have in high school.

While I suspect the spiral bound notebook that serves as his 'teacher's guide" is actually his own 12th grade history notebook, this guy is cool. Don't tell him
