I am now in college and I still remember the lessons in Biology that Mr. Motroni imparted to my class with his characteristic wit, energy, and knowledge. While some complain about the length of his homework assignments, they develop study skills that will set students up for future success because the study of biology, and science in general is not without hard work. This is an honors class that is incredibly rewarding if taken seriously. Get to know him, Motroni is a very caring teacher.

Definitely overrated, Mr. Motroni may be a good teacher, but he definitely does not understand his students. He assigns a lot of unnecessary work and does not really consider his students when giving assignments and tests. Not my favorite.

Mr. Motroni is the best teacher that I have ever had and will likely ever have. A year in Mr. Motroni's Bio Honors class will leave a student knowledgeable about complex Biology. In addition, Mr. Motroni's lectures are memorable due to the jokes he throws in. Above all, Mr. Motroni simplifies the most complex topics by dissecting a concept into simpler ideas. After all, Einstein once said "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." Here's to the best teacher at Mitty!

He is an amazing bio teacher! He knows everything about biology and is very good at explaining things to his students. However, he is very strict and tough, but if you do your homework and follow the directions on labs you will do fine. He's also a very caring teacher and is willing to work with students if they don't understand something. Not to mention, he is also hilarious and good-spirited!

He was an amazing teacher. He challenges you, but if you pay attention and take notes, the class is not that hard. He is extremely funny, and cracks a lot of jokes. Part of the reason you remember things in his class though is because of the jokes he makes. His lectures are memorable. Sometimes he might come off as harsh, because he does not take slipshod work, but that is because he cares about his students and gets irritated when they don't care.

Mr. Motroni is one of the best and most popular teachers I've had at Mitty. What I love about him is that he makes humor a central part of his class. His Biology honors course is quite difficult and I struggled at times, but his lectures are almost never dull, and he has such great knowledge of science. Always fun to talk to in the library or the science lab, and he always remembers his students, even after they leave his class. Definitely a great teacher.
