The greatest teacher that I've ever had as a teacher. He helped me get out of my shell and build up a sense of humor. I enjoyed his classes, which encourage creativity and social skills. His essays and short stories were enjoyable to do. His group discussions were iconic, and the best feature of any class I've ever attended. His class taught me to look at literature in a whole different way and I'll be grateful to him forever.
NI love Mr.Bonsignore. He is honestly one of the best English teachers and his science fiction class is amazing. The reading can be long sometimes but it's very enjoyable. He doesn't give many essay assignments but when he does, it's usually very open topic and he lets you rewrite them for a higher grade. He jokes around with the class sometimes and is pretty chill overall.
Perhaps the greatest teacher I have ever had for English. I don't really enjoy English class, but Mr. Bonsignore makes it so that it's one of the classes I look forward to the most during the day. I absolutely love this man. If I could, I would take another semester of classes with him <3
Mr. Bonsignore is such a great English teacher. He allows you to redo essays,and gives around 3-4 quizzes all year!(but their kinda hard so study) but he doesn't seem to count them very much. Just participate and do the homework (if u get A's on all the papers and participate you will get an easy 95+. The only thing is that this class is kinda boring because you do the same thing everyday for a month at a time! But overall a great class with a really nice teacher!!!!!
This guy is honestly the most amazing teacher I've ever had. He's legitimately the most humble, nice, knowledgable teacher I've experienced. His classes are AMAZING, never ever boring. He lets the class run discussions for the most part which is so great, and treats students with complete respect. He does give a decent amount of work, but you'll fall in love with his teaching and passion and you won't even mind or notice half the time. Once you have Bonsignore, no one else compares. LOVE him.
He's such a great teacher, always in a good mood. Most of his class is writing and sharing, and he does give 1 hour of hw everyday. But he lets you redo assignments and is very understanding. If you have him, you're extremely lucky.
Best teacher ever. Fun class also!
Mr. Bonsignore is absolutely amazing. He's a fun guy and allows you to redo essays, because he just wants you to improve yourself. He gives literally gives two quizzes the entire year. It's ok if you hand in a late assignment, but don't take advantage of it. He's a great person and is always so happy. Just participate and do the homework.
Mr. Bonsignore's class is honestly the highlight of my day. I can't stress enough how enjoyable of an environment the classroom setting is. He is such an insightful individual, always with a smile on his face, that allows students to maximize their grades through simply handing in assignments on time, participating (make sure you do a lot!) and by teaching grammar lessons. Even kids that aren't too phenomenal in the subject thoroughly enjoy his class. Gives a good amount of work but is amazing.
Great teacher, brings excitement into the classroom, and lets you redo essays. Also gives grammar lessons without confusion.
Best teacher ever had! Just a little bit hard on tests.
Mr. B is the best, nicest English teacher i have ever had. His class is mostly very fun discussions and he is hilarious and amazing
Best and most helpful Freshman Composition teacher, no doubt. You will learn a lot and will never be bored in class.
Mr. B is by far one of the nicest teachers I have ever had. He mainly lets you run the discussions centered around the book and you almost never have a true lesson, most of class is just a discussion or a writing response. He is a pretty flexible grader and if you are unhappy with your grade, he lets you edit papers to get points back. SOOO NICE!
Mr. Bonsignore is an amazing teacher. I've never met any other person like him. He's very kind and understanding of his students, and always encourages people positively. If you get Mr. Bonsignore, you're seriously lucky.
Great teacher. Pretty much have a classroom discussion everyday. He tells us the proceedings, and the students take over.
Not much to say but that he's awesome. Was probably the best English class that I had so far. He really made English a good experience for me.
This man is wonderful....I usually don't like English, but having him as a freshman made me LOVE IT. prepares you so well for the english regents and teaches grammar! so nice, and so sweet
The nicest guy ever. Gives a lot of work but is a really chill guy. Fair grader. Get on his good side, participate and you will do very well.
There's a lot of work required in this class, but none of it is too difficult. It's important to remain consistent in participation and homework. He's a great guy, very friendly and approachable. The
Very harsh grader when it comes to your report card grade. Moderately easy when it comes to essays/hw. Be sure to participate EVERY DAY!
work can be a bit hard, but he's really nice and understanding. don't take advantage of his kindness though!
Amazing teacher, I genuinely enjoyed his class, and that's quite unusual with me. HW can be excessive, but never boring.
When I left his class, my writing skills just plummeted. Wish I had him again.
He's a great teacher and a lot actually goes on in his class. The work isn't anything to worry about, and it can be really fun sometimes.
he gives a lot a work and is a harsh grader when it comes to grammar but he tries to help the student when the student is struggling
Well organized, cares about his students, and enjoys his work-What English teachers should be like.
BEST. TEACHER. EVER. like you can tell he abs. LOVES his job and he's super nice and helpfull. I wish I could have him all 4 years
Gives a lot of work. But if you do them (along with revisions), he will give you a high grade. He has a very likeable personality, and is one of the kindest teachers I've had.
He's old-fashioned, classy, the best English teacher ever. I had a lot of fun in his class. :)
HE IS ONE OF THE BEST TEACHERS IN STUYVESANT. HE IS SOOOOOOOOO LENIENT WITH GRADING AND HE IS JUST A COOL GUY
Mr. Bonsignore allows one to continue revising and submitting the same assignment until one gets a good grade. He focuses on getting one to write than on getting a good grade. :D
I've had him the entire year last year-- he is SUCH an awesome English teacher. The class is primarily focused on discussions, which are fun and engaging. Be sure pay attention and participate.
He is one of the best English teachers ever!! I love his classes and he keeps everyone awake (not like some other teachers). The best part is that we don't write a lot and can revise as much as we want. =P
best teacher ever!!!! Knows how to keep the class engaged and interesting....i always look forward to going to his classes!!!
I miss him too! My new English teacher is good (Francis) but class isn't nearly as fun as it was with Mr. Bonsignore.
I am doing the final project right now... not fun. Way too much workload but he is pretty fair about handing it in late and stuff and revising. We also have really in-depth and interesting class conversations.
The class setup: students pick discussion topics and make observatons. The teacher makes sure they don't hurt each other because of philosophical differences. A progressive and student-centered class.
He's the best english teacher. Gives a bit of work but his classes are so engaging and you can never really fall asleep in his class
An extremely good teacher, he keeps the class engaged every day. I always look forward to in-class discussions. Although long, I now look forward to writing essays. Be prepared for interesting but hard work.
Amazing classes, he knows how to teach passionately. I enjoyed reading stuff I knew I would like as well as stuff I didn't think were my taste, and it was always interesting.
He is the greatest English teacher I have ever had. He gives quite a lot of work but nothing could compare to the satisfaction you get when you receive a good grade. Everyone I know who had him freshmen year misses his class.
He is a great teacher. Even though he gives alot of hw, it helps improve you writing a lot.
I love him! He is an amazing English teacher. He tries really hard and is also really fair. You get a lot of work but you can revise it which is really nice. He's a really sweet man.
he was a great guy .. very fair and understanding and had a good enough sense of humor .. hmm reminds me .. i still owe him a book ..alot of work to do but u learn alot ..
I hate this guy. He's really unfair with grades and all he cares about is participation. If you only participate about 1-2 times a week, the highest grade he'll give you is a 80.
Mr. Bonsignor is my fav. english teacher from the school and now i have him for the second time. Hes mad funny at times and his class is great! Just be prepared to do lots of hw
he makes you write about a page or so every night, but he grades easily anyway. the class is basically ALOT of class participation, but he makes it fun anyway. awesome teacher
Awesome man. Brought irish music when we were reading Angela's Ashes =)
Gives tons of work and I absolutely hated the books he assigned us. I must say though, my essay writing skills improved a lot, so I'm grateful. Pretty good teacher and nice too.
He's a great teacher but gives 2 much HW. Otherwise he's awesome!! Very Clear and Helpful
hes the best hes very nice but he DOES give a lot of homework classes are interesting and he greats very well hes the best teacher i ever had or ever will have he really cares
Assigns way too much HW but he is nice and gives you chances to revise your work for a higher grade. Every teacher should do that.
Mr.Bonsignore is the best English teacher I think I'll ever have.He can give difficult work but he is extremely nice.
He is one of the coolest English teachers I'll ever have. He gives a lot of work but is a lenient grader.
the man. sci-fi was the best course i took in stuy. you can't go wrong with him, just be his friend and the class is awesome
The best English teacher I ever had! Mr. Bonsignore's class was awesome! I had so much fun. AND I never had a 99 in English before and I probably never will!
high work load but high grades. need a good first impression.
gives a lot of work, but he's an easy grader, and he's very nice :)
very nice but gives a lot of work.. the books are weird too but i guess its just humanity curriculum
hes a mild tempered person who brings lots of interesting ideas to class tho i must sey i wish we did less writing and more discussion
hes ok.....too much work, and he acts as if his class is the best in stuy...too much work!!!
He gives lots of work, but it's rather easy. One of the most kind and helpful teachers I've ever had.
cool teacher. i heard his sci fi class is/gonna be very very coool
He is alwaays creative in his work. He makes boring books intersting... except for Frankenstein. Nobody can make that good
This guy gives homework every single night. He acts like his class is the most important ever. What a waste of time.
A shout-out from your admiring colleague at Tech, D.B.
fabulous teacher! lots of fun things to do in class, nice to everyone
Wonderful Teacher! Too bad you left Tech, we miss you..hope he reads this..
