Never have I had a teacher who had such an in depth knowledge and passion for his subject. Mr. Paccone will go out of his way to make sure that his students have learned the material. He keeps the class interesting with his great stories. Anybody who likes history would want to have Mr. Paccone as their teacher. He is just an overall great teacher and a cool dude. just make sure not to annoy him.
Lots of people don't like Paccone for some reason, but his AP Gov class was incredibly good and I loved it. He taught us the most important things and shaved out unimportant terms. He also told us lots of stories that related to Gov. For example, he told us how one guy from SMHS many years ago was one of the main guys in Watergate! He really made gov interesting, and held review sessions. He wanted us to do really well and had us to a bunch of practice tests to prep us for the AP. Awesome guy
I've never been good at history, but Mr. Paccone keeps you engaged and interested in whatever you're learning. He wants his students to do well and to be active. Best history teacher I've ever had.
Mr. Paccone will be a great friend to you as you take his class. He will help you grow and is always on your side.
He has the best stories and I actually look forward to his class. His tests aren't too hard because he gives out study guides/goes over it in class. He's funny and a great teacher
paccone is just awesome. oh yeah and he sometimes brings his dog to school and it just sits there in or out of its cage. not biasing this cause of my love for dogs and his chillness (if that's even a word), but he is amazing nuff said. :D
Paccone can have a bad attitude if you're not on his favorite list. He can give students a hard time and only nice to the one he likes.
Paccone is one of the most engaging, fun teachers you'll have at SMHS by far. Government was never a strong interest with me, but he managed to make it interesting and funny! I recommend EVERYONE to take psychology with him. THAT class was absolutely amazing.
Paccone is a hilarious, cool guy and I haven't met ONE person who hasn't thought of him the same way. If you have him, you're lucky!
Paccone is a pretty self-glorifying teacher. You can sense his liberalness through his words alone. He teaches upon the concept that his students are ignorant (which is true for most of SM students).
best history class I had. I hadn't really liked history but this made it interesting.
One of the greatest teachers during my high school years... really knows his stuff.
Kids need to lighten up and focus on what he has to offer - not his faults, no one's perfect. he's not organized because he moves the class based on the pace of the students. His survey psych course basically the fundamentals well enough for me to study 50% less than other kids in upper div college courses. His gov course may not get you to score a 5 on the ap exam. but you learn/retain enough to carry on a conversation without sounding like a ****. you have to try REALLY hard in not trying to to get an A.
really lazy, always gives homework to let us study by ourselves; sometimes he talks a lot of irrelevant stuff, wasting time...
Funny guy but keep an eye on him if you're a girl. He needs attention too much and makes comments that my parents wouldn't like. It seems like a matter of time until he crosses the line. Funny but very creepy.
hes very knowlegable, and a fun teacher, he is well balenced between teaching and fun stuff during class.
fun teacher, witty and knowledgeable. just be careful if you're pretty and female...you all know why.
Paccone was my favorite teacher at SM. I loved coming to his class!
I dont like the way he looks at me but I got an A. He made some very suggestive comments to me.
I like him because he looks beyond the grade... and that's good, because grades aren't my friend.
His classes are easy A's. As long as it seems like you try, he'll give you an A.
he's a great teacher. love his pet snake (i wish it was mine!) love the things he teaches us and talks about interesting stuff. very good teacher.
He is very nice, and helpful with papers for other classes
