Nov 11, 2014 I currently have Mr.Delfaco and he is quite a knowledgeable man. He can be a strict marker but he knows what he is doing. Flag Rating

Jul 14, 2013 Very knowledgeable man, incredibly passionate about history and expects/appreciates the same from his students. Gives regular homework assignments and open book quizzes off them. Eager to give guidance for essays, very opinionated and his rants are frequent and entertaining. Comes across as rude at first but you'll grow to love him. Flag Rating

Jul 23, 2012 Defalco is clearly very knowledgeable and knows what he is talking about but he is also extremely rude. Hes a hard marker and if you don't attend class regularly and pay close attention you wont do well in his class. Flag Rating

Apr 03, 2012 Mr. Defalco was one of my favourite teachers. I had him for grade 10 history and loved him so much I continued through will grade 11 and 12 world history. He's funny, laid back, and would add Beatles bonus questions onto tests! Flag Rating

Dec 11, 2011 I had him for geography, while History is said to be his "baby", but he's clearly a very smart and knowledgeable man with reasonable homework policies. I found his exam and tests reviews quite helpful. He wants to help. His humour is a little strange, but don't take offence to that. You can tell he really cares about his students and just wants to be able to communicate with them. It's safe to say that he's straight forward and reasonable. Flag Rating

Sep 11, 2011 Mr Defalco was my teacher twice, both times I was an outspoken religious nut. I Loved arguing with him. Thankfully since then I have now become a total skeptic (mostly in part to him). But he helped develop a deep love I now have for history so thanks Mr D. Flag Rating

May 24, 2011 Lectures in class - learn via auditory. Notes come straight from the textbook. Knows his stuff but can have trouble explaining at a high school level. Interesting and somewhat helpful one on one. Flag Rating

Mar 10, 2011 it's weird looking on here and the majority of what i see is positive comments. on a daily basis i hear people complaining about him. he's a difficult marker, his lectures are boring, and he's incredibly rude. just because someone is smart and knows a lot about the subjects he teaches, doesn't make him a good teacher.

Dec 15, 2010 mr. defalco is an awesome teacher. he deffinitly knows what hes talking about. i love all the backround knowledge he has, it makes the lectures really interesting. unlike some teachers he'll let you know his opinion and WILL argue it. just be warned, its impossible to win an argument against him!

May 27, 2010 He brings everything into the classroom... and for that he is amazing. in spite of the social walls most teachers put up between themselves and students, defalco lets much of his life slip out in all its raw wonder. He's also a very helpful teacher if you have serious questions, while still being completely laxed about missed due dates... Flag Rating

Feb 02, 2010 Greatest history teacher I've had since FOREVER! Really knows his stuff. Very funny too. For the first time in my life, I actually found history kind of fun. Bad marker tho. Has all these amazing stories about history that make it SO REAL. Bit too biased about his opinions. Flag Rating

Jan 13, 2010 Some people may not like his teaching style, but this is one teacher who will actually give you a proper lecture, rather than just reading over notes. He loves to explain things in vivid detail when teaching and I found it extremely helpful in learning all the material. Flag Rating

Jul 07, 2009 Great teacher. Learned so many interesting things in grade 10 and 11 history. He was, however, very suspicious of plagerism and whoever I was in close association with in his class was always accused of plagirising on their final essay :( Overall, Mr.Defalco is a very laid back teacher of is very competent with what he does.
