My name is Rudy Naraine. I had the pleasure of having Mr. Santamaria for US History and Govt in 1997, I believe. He is by far one of the best teachers I've ever had, and he left a lasting impresision on me. His enthusiasm and love for what he does comes across so much in his teaching style. He does his best to make sure you are ready for the regents. If you're prepared, do the work, and engage, you will benefit from what a teacher like Mr. Santamaria has to offer. He's the best.

Really prepares his students for the regents. Coolest teacher i ever had and one of my favorites at Sewanhaka. Truely brings history to life.

He was a teacher when I was there from '79-'83. I guess if he was so bad, he wouldn't be there this long. I think it is the quality of the students that have declined.

Santamaria's okay. He's really sarcastic and thinks he knows everything! He needs to chill out a little bit and stop over reacting all of the time.
