During senior year, I took Spanish 2 with Passanante and it was a great learning experience. From a seniors perspective, he will teach you like a freshman by checking your binders every quarter. One paper each quarter but very easy. Daily blitz can be annoying but not that bad. Quizzes are not hard and the final was easy to pass. One of the funniest teachers I had in high school.
Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the content and the students. Not an enormous workload, but high expectations and intense memorization is what makes his classes rigorous and incredibly useful. You get out what you put in, in terms of studying, homework, tests, and speaking. One of the best Spanish teachers in OUFSD.
Best Teacher Ever!! Love Pas, He's very kind and easy to talk to, he constantly has lollipops and he's always fun to talk to. As far as his class, you can expect to have to memorize at least 10 words a night and get quizzed on them daily. Very content filled class, lots of work but he makes it enjoyable.
Mr Pas???? Greatest of all time.
He doesn't tend to explain much and expects everyone to follow along at the same pace. He also makes jokes that could possibly offend some students although not intended. love/hate relationship with Italian 2
You can probably infer this from all the other reviews, but... he's awesome. If you haven't had him before, you'll agree soon. The class had a running joke of calling one girl ditzy - but it's all good fun. He's a great teacher, too. Tough, and there's a lot of homework, but it's worth it because you'll learn a lot. So, if he's on your schedule, don't change a thing.
Mr.Passanante. The best teacher!!! He is funny and interactive. I had him for AP Spanish Literature and honestly he is one of the few teachers that I throughly understood. I would recommend him for any of the classes he teaches. ( plus I did all my work in his class and he gave a wonderful college recommendation and I got a 4 on the AP test) :)
Pass is the greatest teacher you will ever have in your entire life. If you don't like him, go see a therapist. Favorite human in the world.
mr. pass is a really cool guy. he is so funny have the time. he class is so easy too. i mean all u have to do is study and u easily pass!
Rocco Pass aka the man has proven himself to me...it might be him defeating ghandi in an armwrestle or it might be that he told germany about blitzkreigs but either way, i love him
funny, and makes class interesting. gives lots of blitzes and HW so you really learn a lot. had him for both spanish and italian, best teacher i've had for each.
Pass is the man, helps his students but doesn't baby them, definatly not PC but neither is the rest of the world, class is interesting, more than just a teacher
gotta love pass, who else would do puppet shows in spanish?
Pass is the most awesome guy in the entire world! Never my teacher, but he knew everything about me b/c he was my best teacher/friend! Yea Pass!
one of the best teachers i've ever had...keep up the good work PASSANATER!
MR PASS--YOU ARE THE MAN!! prank calls are always a plus, love it when you pick on people, lovin the blitzes...NOT...thanks for teaching us dirty spanish words.
Mr Pass please make us speak more spanish in class!!! It's really helpful.
He is one of the best teachers i have had. He is funny, and his jokes do help to improve the class by making it not boring. Also taught me well in Italian.
