Had Mr Stoia in 1996. As mentioned by another student, he more than any other teacher, gave me the tools to succeed in college and (as it turns out) my career. Thanks and go Cubs!
He set my mind on fire with the works of Hesse, Potok and others. My favoritebof all time.
Thanks Mr. Stoia--what I learned in your class got me through college with an A average. Best teacher at this nightmare of a high school.
Everyone knows I would rather kill myself than sit in his class.
