I was in the Santana High School band from 1999 to 2000. Afterward, due to the bullying I witnessed, and the issues of Sipos within the realm of his pedagogical method, I left the band and became part of the school website committee - a rewarding, but arduous task. It is the responsibility of the teachers gain a rapport with the students. In fact, part of my discomfort is the fact that he allowed favoritism and even allowed to demotivate others. This created a hostile environment that should have been corrected. Now that I am a teacher, I promise to use Sipos as a non-example for the betterment of my pedagogical practices.
Worst band teacher I ever had! Sipos is sarcastic and mean to students, made untalented students cry by yelling at them in class.This teacher should be fired!!!
Mr. Sipos is passionate about music. Sometimes he plays around and other times he is serious. When he's serious, he can be rather short with immature students
Gets people to play good, but can be very disrepectful and rude towards students. He had used foul language towards students. Can go completely nuts sometimes.
he is not that bad if you get to know him and do whathe asks
Sarcastic, shows favoritism, and is uneffective in getting his points accross.
Extreme sarcasm and disrespect for all but very talented students
