New York Literature :
At first I thought the class was going to be extremely tough because of the grading. I soon learned that I appreciated Mr. Silva's meticulous effort in reading through every students homework. I came out of that class an extremely confident writer and gained insight on various styles. Not only was the class fun, Mr. Silva's commentary and take was unique and lectures were very socratic.
I would definitely recommend Mr. Silva as a teacher!

I had Oral Composition with Mr. Silva. He's quirky and funny, and genuinely cares about his students. He makes learning in his class interesting. He has decently high expectations on homework, however, but this just pushes you to always put in your best effort. He can be a little nit-picky with grading, because he expects you to follow his guidelines exactly. Overall, I would recommend him as a teacher.

Carl is by far the best teacher you'll get at Mitty. Yes he is a hard grader...but it makes you care about the class. Just write everything you think. He is way more interested in your ideas than your ability to repeat what the reading told you. Seriously, best guy.

Carl was the best teacher I've ever had. Humorous, yet intelligent and respectful. Challenging yes, but made classes so much fun that it didnt matter. Would definantly reccomend his art history class.
