I had Doc as a sub once for 10th grade English and almost made a kid cry. I was scared to death when he showed up on my schedule for junior year but my perception of him was totally wrong. He knows a ton about everything and is a better guidance counselor than anyone in guidance. He's such a nice guy but incredibly sarcastic during class. Leave the thin skin at the door. One of the only teachers who treats you like an adult. Class is very interesting as long as you're involved. Love this man.
It took me a while to formulate my final opinion, but I've decided that Dr. Cicione is a cool guy if you aren't easily offended. He uses a lot of satire and targets girls a bit in class. He is a tad bit selfish though. He won't help you with your Task 1 or 2 essays if you don't have a printed copy or email him it. I do like it how we don't get formal exams in class. He definitely knows the material and is a somewhat fair grader.
He comes across as a tough teacher but his class is really easy and he's a nice person, if his sense of sarcastic humor and insulting remarks doesn't affect you too much. As long as you read and participate in the socratics, you'll have a high grade. His class is structured so everyday is a socratic discussion and most of your grade is based on them. He can start to only love talking about himself and will find a kid to be particularly mean to. 12
His assignments may seem relatively painless to start, but when you are stuck doing the same exact assignment for every work for the first half of the year, it can become dry. He's also a bit notorious for throwing an occasional hissy fit and just completely stopping teaching for the entire block, which is unacceptable. Most of the time, though, he is a cool, knowledgable, and somewhat interesting teacher to work with. He also seems to enjoy to get to know his students, which is a nice bonus.
One of the most amazing teachers I've had in my high school career! I learned so much from his class and he is an amazing teacher! Just be prepared to class, and work hard!
He is an epic teacher. If you have sense of humor and understand that he is a sarcastic man, you will be fine. He's honestly not a bad guy once you get to know him. Just don't get on his bad side. As far as grading goes he's really fair. He gives goods grades that students deserve and doesn't really inflate. Overall one of my favorite teachers in Commack High.
Just a great guy. Great sense of humor and has always had my back!
Down deep is a good guy. You can't take him seriously he is always kidding around
cicione is the man. some people might not understand his sense of humor but he's an awesome guy and teacher.
I love cicione hes the best english teacher ever hes really runny 2 u just need to like sarcasm but hes an awesome teacher im so glad i have him!!
Personally i like Mr. Cicione. He really cares about his students and the people who dont like him, just dont have a sense of humor. He is very organized and overall a good teacher
He's not easy. He can teach you alot about both english and life. Do not believe the other ratings, just understand his humor is sarcastic. Its not a bad quality. Best tchr in comk
Mr. C. is very thorough in explaining things, which is a plus. He also does as much as he can to prepare you for any assignments. I just don't like his humor.
Never actually had him...but hung around in his classroom a lot. Wish I had the privilage to learn from him, he seems like a great teacher.
Major power trip....probably becuase he was made fun of as a kid, now he feels the need to make fun of other kids! Strange how that stuff works
Mr cic can be a very nasty teacher most of the time. not very funny either
Funny, insulting, and a Yankee fan: perfect combination
