I don't share his political views nor did he ever talk about religion. I was probably in his top 5 students, but I still got a C. Just him being an actual intellectual was amazing and fun to be around. He was an amazing person who taught me a lot about English and life. I loved his class and his personality, but man, his class was freaking hard. Probably my tied-for-first favorite teacher ever
It was Mr. Perone who inspired me to be an english major and future english teacher. He motivated me to be the writer i am today. His class was hard, and i was a slacker in HS so it was tough, but he was an amazing teacher. He encouraged writers to try their hand out with writing with his Jello Pool, and always gave me feedback on personal writing. He made class interesting and really tried to get us to think deeper than just the surface, like with lord of the flies. I miss you Perone!
aight lemme spill some knowledge. get on perone's good side as fast as you can. speak actively as much as you possibly can and try your hardest to think on the level that he does. learn your catholic mythology. give him something to talk about in other periods. his class will become easier over time, just always have something to say or write and you will be fine. -ab
Excellent teacher! Be prepared to write multiple essays and have class discussions. If writing and looking over pieces of literature is not your strong suit, you may have difficulties in this class. Besides all of that, Perone has a unique teaching style and is rather eccentric. Though, he is one of the best English teachers I've had.
He is one of the most, if not the most, intelligent teachers at Stockdale. He makes you think and is a truly amazing teacher.
Mr. Perone teaches more than english. Though his class is difficult, his teaching is amazing. He;s confusing at times, and hard to keep up with, but creates a wonderful learning environment.
Speaking poorly about Mr. Perone and his teaching is a direct correlation not only to an individual's shallowness, but their lack of understanding and love for pedagogy. If one can't appreciate his style of teaching, then that person will not be able to excel in a university.
I am here to warn ALL future students to leave Mr. Perone's class if assigned!!! He does show favoritism and your GPA will only suffer in his class TRUSt ME! EVEN JUNIOR AP ENGLISH students are saying how much easier it is than Perone's class!!!! I mean he teaches at an AP level, but your GPPA only counts as a GP grade!!!!!!!!!!
Mr. Perone is a crazy but amazing teacher .I really appreciate his faith in God and he is cool(:
Mr. Perone is an interesting man. He knows what he's talking about, but the only problem is that it's very difficult for you to know what he's talking about. He hardly ever gives clear answers, but he definitely makes you think. Overall he's a good teacher, but it is pretty difficult to get an "A" in the class.
You write a lot, but essay writing becomes second nature by the end of the year. He has favorites, but they differ in world views; it's the outspoken ones he favors. Tony is a great teacher.
i DON'T HAVE MR. PERONE, BUT I GO INTO HIS CLASSROOM WITH FRIENDS AND I THINK HE IS VERY COOL
If you aren't one of his favorites, let me give you some advice. Write all your papers about Bob Dylan, Jesus, and/or pro-Constitutional viewpoints.
One of THE best teachers at stockdale, he's an awesome guy. I couldn't really stand his class though, it was so much work without too much help. He really made you think though...
Mr. Perone is one of the best english teachers I have ever had. His class made me think more than any of my other classes combined. I love the atmosphere of his entire room. It's magic!
Mr. Perone, hands down, was my all time favorite teacher when I attended Stockdale.He does challenge you, but he really tries to prepare u for college. He was also a great support. You should be proud
Mr. Perone is a difficult teacher to say the least. You really have to put a lot of effort into this class in order to get an A. Try at all costs to get on his good side and good things will happen
Philosophical, like others said. Many essays. But funny.
Spent most of our class time talking about the Bible and Christian God. I am Muslim and I felt completely out of place - I was expecting to learn English.
Mr. Perone is a decent teacher, but his favoritism, which is eloquently noted here, is completely overt.
he gives hope and support to students otherwise discriminated against by teachers who live to stifle censor one's beliefs
Hes a good solid teacher, however Perone's grading, tests, exams, are very subjective and he favors certain students and pushes his least to the side...To say it in one word hes a fundamentalist.
Listening to him speak his mind is astounding. He opens my mind to new thoughts. But he is one of the HARDEST teachers. Esp. if you hate writing.
Mr. Perone is a great guy - no more boring, simplistic english. Huge personality, great discussions. He isn't afraid to look at biblical references and touch into religion. Great!
definitely one of the best teachers out there. he actually cares about his students and what they are learning--and it shows. hard class, but you learn a lot more than standards.
He favors certain students, and if not on his list is forever doomed to failure. Spends all his time prophesizing over the meaning of life. Grades low if you disagree with him.
Perone was a good teacher, sometimes just talks all period about his thinking which is usually interesting. He's a thinker, very nice, and interesting.
Mr. Perone always has been, is a hypocritical, self-glorifier. So, the world has already been saved? Not until people like you are stopped...
hes really cool & so intelligent that sometimes students dont understand what hes saying. hes super fun when appropriate but also a great teacher!
mr. perone is the coolest teacher,and he's really funny.
Cool Guy, But he has some messed up world views. No one cares about the fact that your christian except Jesus. Keep it to yourself.
Excellent teacher...CARES about students who CARE about learning. He liked to teach even outside of the classroom. Thanks Tony
perone may be over the top, but kids need someone like that. some may hate his class, but perone has more people who remember him when they're 50 than ANYONE!
Mr. Perone is an excellent teacher and an excellent person to be around :-)
mr. perone is awesome, his class is hard but im learning a lot!
Perone rocks my socks. One of the best teachers at SHS. But he doesn't like peepz who BS- sorry that'd discount 50% of SHS kids.
he is too smart...and i don't think that regular high school kids get what he is saying half of the time.
I love how he's not afraid 2 share his beliefs. he tells u 2 tell him if he's wrong n agree w/ him when he's right n I haven't seen any1 tell him he's wrong
he's so philosophical and I love that. Keep it up Perone!
his class feels like bible study. Instead of lit. it should be perone's views.
Perone...Wow he's awesome. Kinda confusing sometimes but ya gotta love the guy
He is soooo strage!He talks way to much about philosophy and the meaning of life
perone doesn't care what you think just why you think it!
Wow, what can i say about perone? hes the best teacher ive ever had
