I think he was quite knowledgeable but he didn't explain things well and a lot of self-learning was required. Class was often off topic and I didn't really like his sense of humour

Mr. Di Sante has his favourites in the class (i.e. the kids whose names he knows without having to check the attendance list) and the kids who he picks on. If you're not a teacher's favourite in general... you better try to be one in Mr. Di Sante's class or your year will be a tough one... He's never afraid to call your parents if you misbehave in his class! And don't speak out in class without raising your hand, it's one of his pet peeves. But he does know his stuff and is very knowledgeable.

He is not helpful at all. He picks favorited and is insane. I actually had to switch courses because I couldn't understand him at all. He wouldn't help me with any of the problems I was having with the material and picks on certain people. I hate him.

he picks favorites and spends a lot of time raging at students. He is funny and if you try hard enough you will see some improvement in your marks. However If you are on his bad side it is near impossible to go to his good side and he tells you about tests only 1 class in advance. You will have tests every week and thought they seem easy at first as time goes on and you get harder and harder material, the average mark of the class will go from a 90 to like an 75.

A hilarious, eccentric character with a maniacal devotion to extra-curricular activities, but should not be qualified for anything above M3 Latin. While knowledgeable about ancient history, that course is practically gone (RIP ROA). His Latin is not as strong as it should be to teach an older class, and his explanations are often hard to follow...or wrong. That being said, his quirks involve threats of defenestration, stuffed snakes in the cupboard, and a lunatic devotion to extra-curriculars.

He is an amazing teacher and lecturer. He is fairly strict and holds high expectations. I do not agree that "easiness" should be a factor in determining how good a teacher is. Mr. Di Sante is not "easy", but he is dedicated to teaching and if you show that you want to learn, then you will learn a ton.
