So thankful that I had him as a teacher. Never liked English class until his, he makes class feel like one big discussion. You learn so much from him without really realizing.

Mr. Parise gave me words of encouragement 10 years ago and is the reason why I became the person I always wanted to be, I just did not know it yet.

Throughout my 18 years of living, there has not been any teacher that I have encountered that has been able to deliver a lesson like Mr.Parise has. His charisma, creativity, and empathy allows him to encapsulate the attention of every student in his class. The amount of respect and trust he puts into his students is unparalleled by any and every teacher, and that is given back to him as a result. I have learned to respect the craft of English and its influence. Mr.Parise is my spirit animal.

Mr. Parise is the best teacher one can ever have! He's funny, he's informative, he's helpful. He can make the most boring thing interesting! He can make you fall in love with the course he teaches :) I think he's the only teacher who actually knows how to teach. Other teachers need to take lessons from him on how to teach well! English class was never so amazing!

AMAZING! I have him as my grade 9 english teacher...and it's the best experience ever! I've never been this active in class...he's made English a favourite subject of mine...the schools need more teachers like him...if anyone has him as teacher than know from that minute that you will be looking forward to an amazing semester--you'll never go through a day of his class without laughing at least 10 times...if your lucky enough your jaw will be hurting from laughing the entire class...he's ????

Mr. Parise is an amazing teacher. I didn't expect english class to be that much fun and that I will get that engaged. You never know if he is serious. And I appreciated his depth, too. He is funny, and touching, and agressive, and opinionated, and understanding, and helpful - very attractive personality, and a knowledgeable passionate educator.
*I am an adult student and a non-native English speaker. Took his class at Night School and this was the best part of the day I was looking forward to.

Parise. I can't say that I've had him as a teacher but I'll always enjoy his Joker attitude. There would be no fun in Thomson otherwise. He had once told me, since we both at one point in time got on each others nerves, that he would fail me if I were ever in his class. Do I ever wish I could be in his class this year I would irritated him just to laugh at him and see if he would actually fail me.
