We need to bring him back to percussion ensemble. It sucks that he has to be an administrator. Ash is the worst at teaching percuccion ensemble, so it would be nice to have DeStefano back.
D is somebody who you need to know when you go to FHC. He is the most caring teacher I have ever had. He would make sure you knew the material and would make you so excited about being in his class at 7 in the morning. Even though he is assistant principal now, he is still my favorite person at the high school.
Mr. D is the assistant principal now. He has checked out the music program completely and actually seems to hate us. He doesn't even seem to like kids very much anymore. Not very approachable anymore.
Mr. D is by far my favorite teacher. I've learned much more than music from him. He has a way with kids to offer them the opportunity to achieve something great. He is very opinionated and direct about certain things, but he loves his job. There was never a day that he arrived to school and didn't want to be a part of one of the best bands in the state. He supplies the passion for music and impacting others that is not shown in most. Thanks Mr. D for everything you've done.
Honestly, one of the greatest human beings I have ever met. He has been there for me a lot and actually, it is because of him that I am going to the college that I'm going to next fall. His has high expectations but is extremely fair. He has a wonderful sense of humor and even when he's in a bad mood, I can't hate him. He is a fantastic person, father, teacher and I will miss him so much next year.
Awesome! He inspires the kids to do their best. He also is a positive role model for them.
Mr.Destefano is one of the best teachers you can ask for. I've had him for Band and Jazz Band for the past four years and he has taught me invaluable lessons about everything in life, not just music.
Mr. D displays the best qualities of a fun yet get-the-job-done teacher. He always brightens my day. Honestly, you could not ask for a better band director.
He is an excellent band director. He is serious about music, but likes to have fun to. Some days you work really hard, and others you play just relax. He makes it worth not quitting w/ Davis @ cms.
Mr. D is great. He's hilarious and makes band the funnest thing ever. He can be very direct and blunt when he's trying to make a point though
best music teacher ever. very straightforward but gets his point across. amazing.
mixed feelings... can be very mean, but very fair.... he still is really mean unless he likes you.
D is amazing. he loves teaching and loves you if you work hard. he teaches more than music
I'm not even a percussionist and I love him. So :-P to all of you who think otherwise!

MR. D is awesome! I wouldnt want to be in Percussion without his help
