3 years after graduating i realized a lot of stuff mr. Parascos said was true. If you slack off in his class he will treat you like an adult harshly, simply because as a senior it will be the last time you can goof off with a safety net. In all my years k-12 Mr. P was one of the most important teachers i've ever had, as he tries to prepare you for what the real world holds. Many of my friends after graduating agree who had him agree that he truly cares about his students education and well being
Best man you'll know and have as a teacher. He runs his class like college. Because of him I wanted to pursue teaching history!
mr. P is probably THE most caring teacher I've ever had. At times he may get emotional or exaggerate things but he has good heart. Unlike the other teachers who only strive to just teach the lesson, mr.p will try to really make an impact. Many people complain about his notebook,but don't realize that HE spent hours finding good notes, and instead of just copying notes like most classes he already did it for you. He always gives students multiple chances. As a teacher, no other can compete w/ him
Mr. Parascos was my teacher in the 90's, he was also the Dean at that time (don't know if he still is). He was a great teacher, I just wasn't a very good student, yet he tried really hard to get me to be one. I was young and stupid. The last time I saw him or even seen school for that matter was when I was in trouble by him for cutting his class and he tried to call my parents while we sat in his office. I held the receiver down and ran out.He followed me and told me God loves me.good man.
mr. parascos is misunderstood, he is a very caring person but sometimes he doesnt always have the best way of showing it. honestly i believe he is a fair teacher and gives you what you deserve. He is defiently a teacher you can confide in. Although my only complaint is you never really know what kind of mood he will come in with day, he may be sweet and laughing or you may catch his angry and bitter side, other then that he is a great man, a man of loyalty and integrity.
tests are hard but give extremely high grades which people don't deserve.
I loved Mr P one of the greatest teachers I ever had. He is incredibly funny as well as fun. Th only way i can really discribe his teaching method is that its almost like Glenn Beck and that is awesome
he might not be easy, but you can tell he is a great teacher, he taught me something called follow directions, why bother to go against someone who actually cares about you and have the rights to control your future? his book thing is great for review on test and regents, and he does have the sense of humor to keep you awake and foucs during the class, mabe you hate him now, but later in your life, you might realize there is some one actually once cared about you that is not your family.

Too much homework. Notebook has to have specific standards to get good grade.
One of the best teachers I've ever had. This man definitely receives a lot less credit than he deserves. He is very inspiring, caring, loving, enlightened, and most of all, enthusiastic
I miss having him as my teacher. Just do your work, don't cut class, do well on his tests... cause his basically telling you all the answers. haha easy 100's
Ok guys, i know mr.p like a father and im not being bias or anything, if you are willing to work for an easy grade. All you have to do is complete the homework, and go over the review once, that's it!
wow no way hate this guy makes you do all the work not very clear on teaching and definetly not the best ss teacher
BEST TEACHER EVERY!!!!! SOOO NICE. He tells you EVERYTHING you need to know on tests and he has a good heart. TY for everything Mr. P
amazing at what he does.
people don't understand that he is trying to help you.
FIRSTTT IMPRESSSIONSS AREE VERY IMPORTANT!!
verry kind hearted, always trying to help good teacher makes teaching fun and intresting such a go0d person some times he has its moments but he is such a go0d man othere wise i rate him a A++++++++++
He is one of the best teachers ever!!! He's made me such a better student. From 70's to 90's!!
great teacher very inspiring may give us a little too much hw but its for the better
hmm, i cant really say hes i bad teacher and i cant really say hes a good teacher because he doesnt have a good teaching mathods and goves us WAY TOO MUCH WORK, but hes really funny and loves us...but the things the other people say are true also
I think he's a bad teacher, because he doesn't teach us, he expects us to learn from cutting and pasting papers, and he is without a doubt biased. How are we to learn if we have to do side projects all the time, too?
I thought that having a history with Mr. P [soccer team & service for him as a dean] would help but i honestly still think he is the same man i always thought he was. Rude, intimidating, and gives a lot of unnecessary enrichments aka essays.
He gives us WAY too much hw, makes fun of students and isn't clear on what he wants us to do. He is SO MEAN to students, thinking he's funny but he's only being rude.
easy tests ... wish if that there was more rigid teaching sytyle
I had him way back in the day....i graduated in 1996. Never had a better Prof. that brought history alive!! Those Ultra Mega Destroyers....I will never forget the Himalayan Mountains and the way he taught us about it!
disrespectful. rude to both teachers and students. Bad attitude. flies into unpredictable rages. even called on it in sports by referees might be getting "help" from .... those sporty mood altering substances that have been in the papers so much lately
He made me want to persue Law. Before his class, it was simply a food for thought, now its official. Im on my way to law school! Thanks Mr. P!
mrp is the best teacher i ever had he really cares and uses different methods than most. reall cool.
I think Mr. Parascos is one of the most interesting teachers I've had so far. The funniest thing he does is accents. He starts off Enligh and ends up Jamaican! His tests are straight foreward and he tells you EVERYTHING you need to know. He's awesome.
Personally, I believe that Mr. Parascos is a very fair teacher, sometimes even overly generous. He basically spells out everything you need to know for his tests, so the only way that you can possibly fail is by lack of studying and his homework is a mana
Mr.P is one of the best teachers Cardozo has to offer. The 5 words that best describe him are astute,caring,nice,humble and intellegent. he cares for all his students equally. i think hes the best teacher i have ever had. TY mr.p for all your hard work.
A true patriot of America, Mr. Parascos is enlightned thinker. His strong personality helps promote a well disciplined and loving unified class. He is an excellent teacher, dean,and most of all friend. Just remeber take notes & study and you will do fine
Mr.P is not only a great teacher, but a good person. I don't think there is another teacher that tells their students that they love them on a dily basis. Mr.P can best be described as, the epitome of man kind. Mr.P should recieve"The Greatest Peron"award
MR.P IS THE BEST EVERRRR.. teaches criminal justice with so much enthusiasm and makes learning fun.. thanks for everything!!
mr p is a wonderful dean coach and teacher my pal he has helped and given much to me
very misunderstood tries really hard and cares very much puts his whole heart into what he does great man
Had this guy back in '97 for Contract Law. He was one of the nicest teachers I had. Tests were easy and you got bonus points for knowing your Seinfeld history! The only class outside of PE that I actually looked forward to.
hes very nice and if u listen to him he will be always there for u
He yells to much. He should come down alittle bit. It helps students to feel comfortable around him, if he don't yell.
If this is the same Mr. Parascos I had as a student during the early 90's I am shocked to see (-) comments. He was caring and inspired me to teach. Thanks!
hes a really cool teacher, A very loving man, he makes the class do alot but that really helped me do my other work as well with the note book
hes so mean n he never listens and i WILL NOT join the soccer team because he is the coach
