Well, I've never really had him as a teacher, but whenever he sees me and I'm sad, he'll always talk to me about what's wrong and try to help and give advice! It's really nice. :)
Most students either love or hate Castignola. For some his teaching method is tiresome, for many it gets results and the students enjoy the guy and say hi even long after they've finished his class.
All we do in his social studies class is take notes out of the book. Boring class, but his stories are funny!
I had Mr. Castignola in 1984 as a Social Studies teacher and I loved his personality and his relationships with the youth. If he is still there since then..wow
There's a lot of work-but he is very clear and simple on what he wants. I took a books-worth of notes, but I mainly remember him head-butting the cabinet.
Mr. Castignola was one of the best teachers I ever had.
I was only in the class for about two weeks, enough said.
