Easily the most amazing teacher ever. I had him the year of 2013-2014 and he's my favorite teacher of all time. I still have my notebook from his class, with his autograph in it.

Andrea is easily the most incredible human I have met at Stockdale High School. He is passionate about history, but moreso, his students. I love this man (and his daughter [proof the perfect person exists]) and wish I could take his class over and over again.

Perfect score in every category. I love this guy and I'll cry if he actually retires after this year.
Oh well, it's been a long ride for him, and he definitely deserves a break. He's worked so hard at his job.

Wonderful teacher and wonderful man. Had him last year and learned more in his course than in all my high school courses combined. School in general is bull, because teachers only want to overwork students rather than teach them. But not this guy. He teaches the ideal way by simply lecturing and teaching every day and testing you every week or so. Learned so much and couldn't ask for a better teacher. He's also an awesome dude. Fought in Vietnam and is like almost 70 years old. Love him!

One of the only teachers I respect at Stockdale. Best teacher I've ever had. He truly cares that each of his students understand the material for the right reasons rather than just to get an A. I wish more teachers were as dedicated, intelligent, and extraordinary as him.

Prepares you for the AP test well and you leave the class with a good grasp on what was taught, be it world or US history. Not very cooperative with those who disagree with him.
