I had Mr. Radosta for freshman English. I honestly think he's an amazing guy, who knows SO much about literature. If you don't pay attention, and if you don't take notes, you won't succeed. If you don't do what you're supposed to do, you won't succeed. Do what he tells you to do, and you'll do fine in his class. Take advantage of any opportunities given to you.

MHS class of 03. I took his class, Freshman English, in 1999. He was known as a strict grader then as well. His class has benefitted me throughout my entire life, through college and into my career. Only class that mattered in the real world.

I believe he is an intelligent man with alot to offer. He knows his material and is dedicated to his job. One issue I have with him is he doesn not know how to connect with the students. He gives Fs without hesitation and makes students feel beneath of what they are capable of. If a student ever contributes an opinion, he scraps it away entirely and waits for someone to give his answer. he would be a perfect middle school teacher, preparing kids to write essay so theyll be prepared for the futur

Don't believe the rumors about him! Everyone who says bad things about him were the ones who never actually read the books and didn't want to work hard for their grade. He alows you to do rewrites of every essay, no limit and you can correct tests to bring your grades up. He spent so much time on books to make sure we were always 100% comfortable with it.

Don't listen to all the bad rumors about him. His class is really easy and fun if you go in for writing conferences, listen and follow instructions. He's a good guy and cares a lot about his students. My writing skills got so much better in his class. I'm happy I had him.

It's simple: if you follow directions, you will do wonderfully in his class. The only people who hate him are the ones who can't read instructions. He is one of the smartest men I've ever met. Listen to everything he says.

One word: ego. He, sometimes, can act arrogant. Needs to be more humble. Otherwise, I liked him. His class was enjoyable (when we discussed literature, not grammar!) and he was a nice guy, usually.

Totally arrogant, I've become pretty used to his antics. He knows that he is polarizing, he knows that people think that he's too hard, and he tries to use this as part of his image. Difficult, not impossible, disrespectful.
