Doesn't know how to teach an AP class. Felt the least prepared for the micro and macro test. Many pop quizzes on stuff not in the readings. Becomes a huge baby when students complain about unfair test questions. Never knew how to keep track of time in class, so we'd always end up staying overtime bc of in-class assignments/ quizzes the last 10 min of class. Would not recommend AP Econ if you don't want to pursue a career in econ. The class is very frustrating and not worth the stress senior year
In all my 12 years of being in school I've never had this many legitimate complaints. It's not just his grading system, which is awful already, but it's his general attitude towards teaching. I've tried time and time again to talk to him and ask genuine questions on the material and specifics and what does he do? He ostracizes me. Not only that, but he treats every question I ask as if I have no right to ask them. He treats it like a joke. I sincerely hope I never have to see this man again.
greg!!! one of my all time favorite teachers. will approach you if he sees you are struggling, and will spend as much time to explain anything that you find confusing. one of my favorite classes, but you do need to work for a good grade
My experience with Mr. Blandino has been one in a million. Not only is he an outstanding teacher but he is such a wonderful and heartfelt person. He cares about all his students so much we all care about him so much. He made Econ come to life and the best experience ever. I love him as a person and teacher. He is my favorite person ever.
Blandino is a good teacher, but his test were very hard for me. He grades homework pretty hard and that can de-inflate your grade. He is a likable guy and but I didn't entirely like how he set up the class. It is possible to get an A, but you will have to work for it. While he can be a little illusive if you need to talk to him, if you talk to him to set up times to meet he is very receptive.
Mr. Blandino is by far the best teacher I have ever had. I took his AP econ class and he did an amazing job at teaching this class and did really well on the AP test. He is always willing to help if you need and truly wants everyone to succeed. Not only is he a great teacher he is also a great support system and will help you succeed in all aspects of life. LOVE LOVE LOVE him hes hilarious and i wish i was still in his class!
What a sweetheart! His AP Econ class is hard if you don't put effort in it. A lot of students get high scores on their AP exams, from what I heard. I think a 3/4 score is the average. He's not super strict, but don't slack/goof off.
LOVE Mr. Blandino!! One of my favorite teachers in all of high school! Super easy and tries to keep you engaged even during lecture days.
I sorta feel like saying that Mr. Blandino should be made principal. But then he would not be in the classroom where he belongs. He is one of the 5 best teachers at MVHS.
Somewhat hard but does anything to make it easier. Very funny and cheerful. Great teacher and person
great teacher. made me enjoy the study of economics. chill nice guy who cares a lot about his students. DON'T BE LATE THOUGH!!!
Let me sleep in class. Really chill, legit, nice, friendly teacher.
LOVED him! favorite teacher at mv by far. genuinely a nice man who cares for his students. amazing teacher who made me become very interested in economics. somewhat difficult tests however.
There's nothing negative I can say about this man. He's friendly, and I learned a lot in his class. He's very supportive and passionate and always has a smile on his face. By far he is the best econ teacher in the department.
Mr. Blandino is a super chill teacher. He really takes the time to prepare out his lectures, and ALWAYS has time to help. Hes an overall nice guy if you give him a chance.
He's very helpful and a very nice guy. He has good ways for teaching.
Mr. Blandino is an awesome teacher. He is extremely helpful, nice and understanding. I would take another class from him in a second, but I'm in college and I can't :( Take his class, he is the best econ teacher EVER!
He truly cares about his students and is interested in their lives. He is always willing to clarify anything that you are having trouble understanding.
Willing to help you even if you wern't paying attention. This man truly cares about his students.
Although his class was boring at times, I still love him! He was the most friendly teacher I had at MV, truly interested in his students.
Amazing person and a real nice guy - a genuine person. However, he doesn't really know economics all that well, so if you're taking AP and actually wish to learn, read the book.
The best teacher i have ever had in high school. He is also one of the only teachers who is a normal person and actually cool. Blandino's a cool dude!
he doesn't seem to have a sense of humor, but he's still a nice guy
Love him, he's a wonderful teacher and an inspiring person.
one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, good teacher too
A good teacher, but an even better person to get to know and work with
