I heard stories about how intelligent and fun he was as a teacher, so I was excited to take his class. However as the year went on, it made it very difficult to take him seriously. He always joked around and wanted us to and then when he would, he would get & that we don't take things seriously. It was really hard to find a balance with him. He got really strict at the end of the year, stopped teaching us the material, showed up less, and gave us quizzes on stuff we didn't know. Funny guy though

Mr. Orlando is not only a great teancher, but a genuinely stand up guy. He cares about his students' success. A lot of people think he's disorganized, which I suppose he is, but we think the same way. I always found it easy to learn from him. He also always held my attention. Great guy. Great teacher

He is generally a really good person and will be very helpful one on one if you come in out of class however in class he generally gets distracted and off topic. He is easy if you come in for extra help

I personally loved Mr. Orlando because he's really funny and nice to talk to about non-school-related things. Still, I could see that many people wouldn't do well in his class because he doesn't show up much of the time and has some issues that could prevent people from learning.

Mr. Orlando is an excellent teacher! He has not always found math easy to learn so he understands a lot of students who may have difficulty with some topics. He is incredibly engaging and really cares about his students so he will go over problems with you as many times as you need in order to get a clearer understanding. Although he's quirky, he's really fun to have and makes his class enjoyable.

Pros
- Told lots of funny stories and jokes, which helped me pay attention as opposed to a teacher who would just lecture, and made topics that could make me zone out into things I could pay attention to because his teaching was so entertaining.
- Explained everything really well
- Cares about his students
- Really patient. I asked him about the same topic for a few days straight because I was confused, and he patiently went over it with me until I got it.
Cons
- None!

Not only is Mr. Orlando great at explaining things I literally could not understand less, but he's also just a stand up guy. Really cares about his students and wants them to do well. I did horribly in algebra 1 and great in algebra 2, and I feel like it had a lot to do with his teaching and encouragement I received from him. He also shared his fries with me every day and I love a man who gives me any kind of food

There is a reason Mr. Orlando was "Teacher of the Year"; he spends a huge amount of time outside of class, being available to support every student -- he loves his kids and it is reciprocated!
