Easily the best teacher in all of Staten Island Tech, I love having russian jeopardy on Friday, and the tests are easy to ace. The class is generally very fun. Russian regents is also easy to get a hundred on.

Mr. Callahan is the greatest teacher I've ever had. I've never done so well in a foreign language class, let alone have I ever had so much fun doing it. Easy class, learned all the material, had fun. Tank of a man, tank of a teacher.

I could never understand what he was saying, but it was still easy to do well in his class. He does dialogues, gives worksheets, and plays Igra on fridays! Very fun class. Everyone loves him.

Nice man, but after taking other languages in college,I realize that his class was pointless and we did virtually no work in Russian other than translate(which was ineffecitve)

Not a lot of work, but still learn. Pretty weird since most classes you do work and don't learn. Mr. Callahan is the opposite - decent workload, effective teaching.
