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.
He's a teacher when he shows up. He's aight.
You're lucky if you have been blessed to be in his class.
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.
- 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.
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
Best teacher I ever had. He is the reason i became so interested in math. a great person who makes math class awesome and also a super helpful and amazing teacher! Best math teacher I have ever had, and everyone's favorite teacher in general.
He's a wonderful teacher and that's all there is to say. Math has become one of my favorite classes despite it being one of my worst subjects and hardest classes
Seems very helpful while he teaches, but what he actually manages to get through is relatively basic in comparison to the toughness of the AP calc exams and university classes. I ended up having to re
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!
SUCH a cool guy. I was only in his class for a few days, I ended up changing math classes but I continued going to him for help. He is so good at providing clear explanations.
teaches the stuff and still has time for funny stories. awesome guy, awesome teacher.
Uncle Chris is the man. He lets me look over his students papers. I am taller than he is now so when he comes up to my house he is little chris and I am big chris!
SO funny-- great teacher and always has time for some hilarious stories-- class is a little tough but he never leaves anyone behind
Orlando was the best teacher I had throughout high school. Amazing ability to get tough calc concepts across to students so we understood plus he's fun!
Calc is tough but he knows how to break it down and make it seem easier.
great math teacher. fun class but bc calc is very very hard.
some how conveys advanced math in an easy to understand manner. nice too!
THE BEST thing that happened on my schedule was that I learned that Orlando was teaching MV Calc/Diffeq I'm still the little guy though :)
he is the funniest teacher i have ever had, he has the funniest stories
He's the best thing to come out of Tenessee. I wish he would sing Rocky Top for us.
Fantastic teacher. I really enjoy his class. He makes math class a ton of fun and he is a really reasonable guy. LOVE HIS STORIES :)
Awesome. What's the deriviative of salmon. His stories are awesome, and so are his handstands. He teaches well and never loses his temper.
the coolest guy i have ever meet, this is the cooles teacher and person, adn i didnt even have him for a teacher
AWSOME guy! But don't anyone be thinkin' that AP Calc BC is easy... nooooo joke.
what other teacher shares stories with you about him having a dream about mud aliens? or the time he left his trunk open + the only thing stolen was toilet ppr?
coolest math teacher ever!loved your stolen toilet paper story. Stay cool and funny mr.O
coolest teacher there is, brings humor and makes a real bad subject a class you want to go to.
This man is the coolest teacher ever. AND he can also get advanced math stuff across very effectively.
Great Math Teacher - I actually began to understand! ..Then I got transfered to Ms. Creager! :(
what other teacher do you know that will skip and go to mcdonalds with you during a fire drill!
