Gazzola teaches literature and life. If you have him as a senior get ready for a heavy dose of philosophy. Perfect class for seniors.

He should be a philosophy teacher. I use to think what he was saying was depressing but now i think its interesting and true. He makes you think of things you never would have thought of before.

Mr. Gazzola is easily one of my favorite teachers. He is helpful, funny, and lively! Not only is he a great character, but his class really improves your communication skills, something that is actually a practical skill. Anyone entering his class shouldn't be afraid of speeches or tests so as long as he/she does the work on time. Tip: Never miss the reading due dates.

Mr. Gazzola is THE BEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD. He is interesting, smart, entertaining, and grades very leniently. I used to hate English, but now its my favorite class and I write really well. He does play favorites, but you can become his favorite if you participate in class and show him you really care.(If you don't do so well on an essay, come to his sgi to ask for tips.) If he likes you and you try hard and do well, he will be happy to give you points back if you mess up on 1 thing.

He is a very interesting teacher and knows how to make a class fun, but nothing is worth it if your not his favorite. He plays favorites for EVERYTHING and it is more than obvious who he likes more than everyone else.

Really clear and knows what he is doing. Tends to pick favorite and gives 95s to people that he likes. Lots of pop quizzes so read! Writes really good recommendations where half my class got into honors the following year including me. But he tends to be overbearing and has rampant mood swings

definitely enjoyable to listen to, doesn't pick favorites in essay grading, but picks favorites on who he calls on, not a big deal because he is a very fair grader and forensics is an honors class that has less work than a regular english class

Is so biased! Grades are based on his personal taste in style and not on actual content. Can't teach anything but basics. Is always referring to himself in third person! Too my feelings and not enough my rationale.

mr. gazzola is a great teacher. He's very humorous and makes the class fun.BUT i think when we're reading the stories during class, he looks too deep into the story. Why can't a story be read purely as a story? Why must EVERYTHING have a double meani
