He took off 20 points for writing the wrong date and page numbers -_- He calls on random people and no one even knows the answer. He expected us to build a paper tower that is 2 meters high with only one piece of paper. No one even understands what he is saying and when you ask a question he answers with something that doesn't even make sense like why. I don't think I learned anything from physics this year...

cimbalo is very smart but he doesn't really answer questions, sometimes when you ask a question, he answers with another question, this isn't really helpful when you legitimately just want some help with something, and his grading needs help
For example
my friend on a test got a half point taken off because cimbalo wasn't able to tell if it was a PERIOD, or a DECIMAL!
they are literaly the exact same thing!!
Also, don't even ask me why he can take of more points than are even on the test

He was smart, but he could not explain anything what so ever. He never answered any questions we had. I went from 100% to 70% like night and day between 7th and 8th grade. He was the reason why I needed science support. He was very insensitive toward everybody but his favorites.He was BY FAR the WORST teacher I have EVER had. High school has been so much better, because he is not my teacher. He has the most monotone boring voice ever, I fell asleep!

Mr. Cimbalo is a funny and nice teacher. He might sound weird but he is one of the 4 core teachers I love listening to. His stories are great and the sq4r's really helped me with my tests.

He is a very good teacher, he changed the way I study, he gave me the tools, advice and support to become an honor student in high school and for that I will be always grateful. He is one the best teacher in Barker Middle School.
