Mr. Fitzgerald was a great teacher for me I wish I had shown up to more classes, which is rarely the case for me, I'm in college and have taken many psychology classes in part because of his great ability to teach, he treats his students like adults not like idiots or children like some other HS teachers, showing respect to your students establishes a foundation for learning that is similar to a good college class.

Looking back nearly 15 years since graduation, Fitz is one of the only teachers who sticks in my mind. The man is brilliant & his teaching style prepares you for what to expect in college. Had him for 11th grade English and Psych. Truly inspiring lectures, pushes students to think critically. Probably should be at DVC or Cal. Miramonte is lucky to have him. The only non-social high school memories I cherish were his classes. -Anon. Class of 2001

I had him for psychology and he made the class and subject really interesting. You learn something new everyday. He pushes you to learn but he also knows when to step back and relax. The class is not difficult at all and everyone was more than ready for the AP test even the class isn't an AP. I know for a fact many seniors decided to major in Psychology because of him. Take psych when you're a senior!

Way cool dude. Awesome psych teacher. Made the class engaging and fun. A great guy. If you're in his psych class, take the AP, it's not hard after taking his course.

Amazing teacher. AP Euro was the best class I ever took. Yes, he's unorganized, very tough teacher, and very liberal, but he I learned so much and he is great.

Claims to know everybody and to have been everywhere in the 60's. Let's face it, if half the hype were true, would he be teaching here?
