Dennis was a great teacher. He is very kind and helpful. He actually teaches and as long as you read the assignments you will do well. As long as you don't have an attitude with him he is great.
I was Mr. Vellucci's student in his rookie season (1979-80). I showed my early '80s yearbook to a girl who is presently a Molloy student. Her face lit up like a Roman candle when she saw his old photo. I was stunned, just as I am by the glowing reviews here. He wasn't winning many popularity prizes back in the day. His lessons could be compelling and to the point, but he was prone to mood swings. Perhaps with experience he has mastered the art of chilling out.

An amazing teacher, finds things in stories no other teacher would, and really involves and listens to his students, great guy
Mr. Vellucci is honestly one of my favorite teachers I ever had at Molloy. He's a great guy and I miss his class so much!!
Not for school but for life, and Mr. V is an amazing teacher!!! He actually analyzes the books with you and points out really cool stuff that you dont notice at first. Learned so much from this guy!
great guy........picks out sum wierd books though......overall great class
Absolutely loved him! Excellent English teacher, probably the best I've ever had. Makes class interesting and fun. Take Lit to Film in Senior Year. Great easy class.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Vellucci. Really passionate about lit&films. One of the funniest teachers I've ever had. Sooo glad I took his class. Speaking of lit into film, I gotta study for his quiz tomorrow hahah
he has a great sense of humor and even though he acts like he doesnt care for u he does. hes a teach u can joke around with about anything including other kids in the class. cant wait to have him latr
He is the best English teacher you'll get at Molloy.Chooses good books,is fair,you learn alot and is funny.Only negative thing is when ya read Shakespeare and you have to remember sentence long quotes
I miss him for homeroom - he was really funny and friendly. I always hear people calling to him in the halls
Best English teacher I've had, even now that I am an English major in college.He inspires students,helps them become stronger writers,& is entertaining. Strict but fair grader-you'll get what you give
Vellucci is the BEST English teacher I have ever had. Now that I have Kelly I notice the difference. I can't wait until I have him senior year.
very cool teacher he makes jokes here and there and picks good books. BUt a hard grader, especially on essays,
brilliant guy, and an excellent teacher, who tries his best to relate to the students.
nice guy ... choose some great books and movies i will forever remember watching Elephant Man ... hard grader but a fair teacher .. told you what he thought he didnt hold back
Mr. Vellucci is a genius- hard but great class and a very funny teacher. Its great when he gives his class an insight on the book or current events. =)
has the best sense of humor but his class can be difficult
::one of my favorite classes! they were awesome and i'm ganna miss having him so0o much! vellucci + hester prynn forever! helped me improve my writing a lot!::
BEST TEACHER!!! NICEST GUY EVER! :P very lenient! xD
Cool guy, but try teaching us about a book BEFORE giving us the quiz on it.
BEST teacher!! he was kinda lame with the jokes, and at times i didnt get them, but i really liked him and he was fair!
hes definately not easy & i dont agree on his 1.05 excuse.I HATE THAT and i also think if u reason something out it shud be acceptabe but no GOOD TEACHER THO!!
Even though i argue with him all the time hes the man.
Vellucci is my lovah! Seriously, though, Best English teacher I've ever had. I can talk to him about wine and books, and he's more of a friend than a teacher.
Mr. Vellucci is awesome i had him last year n i had him as a sub for smith. i wannaa go back to his class!!!!!!!!!
mr vellucci's da man. seriously, he's really cool and he explains the topic real well. and i love it wen he tries to make jokes nd we never get them.. yeah..
I <3 the Velluc! He's one awesome teacher. He may be picky, but at least you know you've earned any praise he gives you. I love his enthusiasm.
Zzzzz. He's a cool guy but in AP English he has no idea how boring it is to listen to him go on for days about stuff you already read and remember. Very boring!
I had Mr.V last year, and he was the best english teacher ever. Your screwed if you forget a book, but I learned a lot from him.
Tough as a homeroom teacher but real cool for English and especially Film!!!
great, great, great. film, english, the phone book, whatever.
a superb teacher..you'd better do the reading, but you'll learn a lot! he's really nice, too
not cool, gets really mad at my hmrm, maybe cus we always blow him off, we shud TRY to listen to him..lol
AP Comp was tough- but he is probably one of the best teachers in the English department.
Mr. V is a funny and brilliant teacher, I miss having him, and he is quite the inspiration...
ur the best u've inspired me to do so much in english
Mr.V i certainly hope u never change, your a good guy and a good teacher ! But try to get the disgruntled off your face, you scare people sometimes!
This man is the greatest! He was the best teacher I ever had. He treats everyone with respect, and for all you kids that don't like him...just get to know him.
Live with it. Mr. Vellucci will probably hate your essay. And if by chance he likes it, he will find somethnig wrong with it anyway. However, he is an awesome man whose life story I want to hear some day.
hes cool but man he alwasy finds sumthin rong about ur essay and his tests have like 3 answers that could b correct wa sup wit dat?????
Velluci u r deff the best english teacher i hav ever had
Mr.Vellucis the man..def the best teacher ive ever had
velluc is mad cool but hard--just read when he tells u to
He's the coolest teacher in the school but reallllllly bad at setting people up!
hes a really good teacher, you just have to make sure you do the work
Vellucci isn't strict and harsh, you just have to be smart to understand him.
