Made me afraid to ever ask to use the restroom. You are bound to your seat for a whole 70 minutes. I took Honors 10th, AP 12th, and creative writing with him and they are all very easy to pass if you do your extra credit and turn things in-- hell, it's pretty easy to pass even if you don't turn things in. Class is highly structured and a lot of info is pounded into you, but it doesn't stick with you very long.

Ten years after I graduated, Cabby is still the most important teacher I ever had. He really changed my life, and my high school friends and I still remember him fondly. I was always a book lover, but he really helped me learn how to think critically about reading, how to figure out subtext and metaphor and dig beneath the surface. Those skills are easily the most useful ones I ever developed. My parents made sure my younger sibling had him years later! Just amazing.

I've never seen a more passionate teacher than cabby!! He does everything he can to make sure his students are prepared and focused. He single handedly made me a decent writer, with those daily paragraphs. Though at the time they are despised, I wouldn't have wanted it another way. He is a great person and an even better English teacher!

Cabasino is quite possibly the best teacher I have ever had. He puts so much effort and passion into his teaching that you can't help but want to try hard in his class. He has a formulaic, easy-to-follow teaching style which will keep you engaged for the whole class period. I also have to commend his amazing ability to help develop writing skills--I'm in college now and feel miles ahead! There are just too many good things to be said about his teaching ability--take his class if you can!

Mr. Cabasino, or Cabbie, is brilliant. He's one of those teachers who devotes his life to his students. He's at the school late at night, grading papers. That's another rare quality he has -- he actually READS all the writing his students turn in.

Mr. Cabasino is just really not that great. He is super easy - all you have to do is do his extra credit. The level of challenge in his class is no where near the challenging curriculum that Mrs. Johnston or Mr. Parr or Mrs. Matthews offers. Why does everyone think he is so great ? I just thought he was a weird but easy A.

Cabby is by far the best teacher I have ever had. He is the Creme de la Creme of teachers. Not only is he very, very entertaining, but he also has a structured, easy to follow teaching style. The only thing "bad" about him is the amount of work; he does assign a paragraph almost every night. Another thing: he needs to sleep more.

Mr. Cabasino is a very special teacher, you won't be likely to find another like him. He raps like a mad dog, but can be very stern like professor snape. Nonetheless, I love him! He is so mysterious and I love that about him! As a teacher he is the most committed teacher in all of Livermore High School! Others come close, but that's it, just close. As Cab would say, Rock.
