Little man who tries to act tougher then he is. He will try and pick on all the little white kids and give out detentions to them, although when it comes to black kids he won't hand out a detention even if they're doing the same exact thing! Very bias towards his baseball and basketball players in school. When it comes to coaching boy don't get me started! I've been to many of his games.Only plays favorites doesn't give anyone else a chance. Terrible educator! Terrible Coach! Terrible Person!

I honestly believe that most of the time he doesn't realize that we are sophomores in high school LEARNING the material. He knows so much about history, and just EXPECTS us to know as much as he does. We have to teach ourselves a lot of the work at home, but don't go over all of it in class because he goes on so many random tangents and we barely finished the curriculum in time for the AP test. He takes forever to grade things, especially during baseball season and his handwriting is horrible.

Mr. DeSarno is a hard teacher and a hard grader but if you sign up for the class then that is what you signed up for. The people who don't do well in his class are the ones that don't listen to what he tells them to do and don't put in the work. Thanks for the the the class, rock on Mr. DeSarno.

He is honestly one of the greatest teachers i have ever had. I had him for both APWH and ConLaw. APWH he is hard but you learn so much from him and his teaching style is more discussions then a lecture. ConLaw was awesome.
