If he likes you your golden if not its an uphill battle.
best teacher of my Andover career
The things we did in class never helped us with the things he assigned which made it very challenging to understand what he wanted from us. Never felt like there was any evidence to back up the reason he would give me a certain grade. not great
Mr. Bardo was an amazing teacher! He was the most passionate of all teachers I have ever had! Hopefully he stays at PA!!
Bardo is the man. one of my favorite teachers @ PA. he so easily relates to his students. he is a great teacher to know because if you have a problem... he can just listen. he knows how to comfort people. but also how to make them laugh with his sarcasm and dry sense of humor. in class he generates
Not sure how I got a 6 in his class. Lol. He's a really good teacher, but he's veryyyyy political
Mr. Bardo is a great teacher. He makes class fun and interesting, and you learn a lot. You have to be prepared for some controversial topics, but if you really put the effort in and work hard you take away so much from his class. An excellent teacher overall, and he is very caring.
he's a tough teacher, but i got a great grade in his class, so if you make the effort you get the results. we learn a lot, and he has great taste in books unless youre opposed to controvercial stuff.
I love Mr. Bardo as a dude, he is really funny and makes class fun, but is a really hard grader.
Good guy, but he's far left and it shows in his teaching and sometimes his grading. He helps your thinking, but not really your writing. Very worthwhile guy, but not an ideal teacher.
Great teacher, great guy. Funny and quirky, but didn't learn much in his class
SBB is SUCH a cool dude. He grades his essays very hard but gives you ways to make it up. I got 3s and 4s on my essays but got a 5 overall. Gives great advice too. You'll remember him forever.
I have endless respect for Mr. Bardo. One of his great pitfalls but also one of the things that give him character is his lack of objectivity. He is very opinionated and he shows it.
One of the best teachers I've had this year. I have learned much more with him about writing than with any other teacher.
Mr. Bardo challenges you to push the limits of what you already know. If you can't accept the unique opportunities he presents, you are ignorant. And (horrors!) he's a hard grader ... deal.
his teaching style is cramped by andover requirements and restrictions and he's difficult. overall though, one of my favorite people at phillips.
Mr. Bardo is hard and vague, but he is the coolest guy I've ever met!!!!
Oh, Mr. Bardo is hard, but I'm not complaining. What a wonderful, unique, and eccentric man! I'm grateful to have known him. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had.
mr. bardo is a hard teacher that makes you work. you learn a lot from this cool dude.
i LOVE mr bardo. i had him fall term for eng 100 (woot - spang 4EVA) and had the best time. hes hilarious and entertaining!
All his detractors just don't understand. He loves his students, and cares so deeply about what he does. Brilliant, insightful and someone to get to know
great teacher. we had some great debates in his vietnam class!
Best english teacher I've ever had--wicked cool guy, too
Mr. Bardo is a bit eccentric, but in a good way. I had him for English 100, and it was an amazing introduction to PA English. He read a poem to the class every day, he let me put blue eyeshadow on him, he promoted discussion rather than lecturing us.
A solid teacher, Mr. Bardo empathizes with his students on some levels but too often tries to impose his political views (specifically, the anti-war ones) on his students.
Mr. Bardo only seems concerned with himself and his beliefs. He is a primadonna who likes to hear himself talk. He is highly volatile.Sometimes he can be nice but other times he is extremely hypocritical and
While he is very funny and makes class interesting, I got the feeling that if you didn't agree with his ideas that he would think less of you.
Although I don't think he liked me much, still one of my favorite teachers. Great guy, always willing to help. Always has something funny to say or talk about. Awesome teacher.
Mr. Bardo is awesome- a passionate teacher and a great guy in general...and he has his classes over for meals at his house!! great guy, great teacher, great classes
One of the most passionate teachers I have ever had. He has marvelous insight
