best history teacher ever.. would have failed if not for him!
I left Mercy in 1989 and without doubt he was my favourite teacher. His enthusiasim to teach was second to none! He even role played on a couple of occasions - one class he even became Michael Colli
What a teacher!!!! Really looked forward to his classes. So interesting. Made a boring subject come to live.
Loved this man! got into trouble with him a few times for talking or not doing my homework but i deserved that. other than that he was cool to me!! very dry but soooo funny!!
He would leave our class to do the morning announcements, he obviously ran the whole way to the office and would come on the intercom completely out of breath! A man completely at ease in his skin.
He was the BEST History teacher any1 could wish for!!! Still can't believe he didn't tell us he was retiring!!!! Class of '06 RULED!!!!
