Mr. Cabiati was one of my favorite teachers of all time and not because he was easy, but because he made you really think and he had great stories. One of the few teachers I remember well from high school!

One of the best teachers ever, had him for English (8th & 9th grade), Grad in 78 and he is one of only a couple teachers I actually remember...that speaks volumes!! He had just moved to VA from teaching a couple years in NYC if i remember correctly, glad to see he is still teaching and still pretty well liked!!

I really enjoy Mr. Cabiati's class. He is one of those people who's passion is history and loves to talk about it, but not just like any other teacher. He talks about history like it's a story. Sometimes I feel like he gets frustrated with our class, because many of us don't pay attention enough to answer his questions. He tries to encourage our participation, even allowing us to surf online to find the answers--- anything to make history interesting for us.

Mr. Cabiati is the most amazing teacher I've ever had. He's probably the most knowledgeable person in history and should really be teaching at a college level rather than high school - he's that amaz

Had JC in 1980. Hard to believe he is still there. He was articulate, and expected the best from his students. He took no BS in class, and had no problem letting us know who was in charge.

He's a cool guy but you have to read to do well on the AP exam. His teaching methods are by analyzing the chapter, not informing the student of the information. He dosen't do ppts, lectures, ect.

Cabs is the man! He can get off topic sometimes, but he always seems to relate things to what you're learning. Read the book, pay attention in class, and do the work, and you should be fine.
