Mr Alfono creates an environments I need the classroom whee people can feel safe to participate and learn at their own pace
simply the best music teacher I have ever had, and still continues to conduct the jazz band in school
During my one and only year attending Bishop Reding in grade 9,2012/13 I had the absolute privelege being his student during my period 1 first semester class. Mr. Alfano is a fantastic person, teacher, instrument player, (etc). I really am so happy I was his student and part of the junior band. All of my friends who were in the same class as me would agree that it was the best class to have first period during our first year of high school. God Bless Mr. Alfano!
Sir is by far the greatest teacher I've ever had. Thanks for everything.
I come to visit him every year. Even though music isn't my current field of study, he'll forever remain the wisest, and most decent human being I've met. Is it true he is retiring? When??
Great guy overall. He always made my day and I look forward to having him again. He is the most wise man I've ever met, though he is retiring soon, any student is lucky to have him as a teacher. Alfano is definitely a one in a million kind of teacher.
Mr. Alfano was one of my favourite teachers. He helped me grow and learn an appreciation for all types of music. I think about him, and band and how inspiring he was all the time.

He has gone through so much, and yet, with his heavy heart, still shows his love and care for all of his kids. He is so dedicated, and you can really see the huge impact he makes on his students! <3
He is not only the greatest teacher ever, but he is the most compassionate, wise, caring person. He is truly an inspiration to all of us, and we all look up to him, and LOVE him! He`s THE BEST!! <3
For the past eleven years of my education, and fifteen years of my life, I have never met any teacher, or any person for that matter, that comes anywhere near comparing to him.
One of the best teachers ive ever had. been through so much yet he never stops thinking and helping us :) if you are going to go to this school. make sure you get invoved in music, to b in his class.
i love him. he has never taught me, but he is still a HUGE influence on me. he is one of the nicest people that i have ever met and i think we should all pray for strength for him and his family
One of the most influential teachers I have ever had. I had him in grade 10 music and now that i am in my 3rd year of college I havent found a teacher like him.. HE IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST TEACHER EVER
Mr. A is the BEST MUSIC TEACHER EVER. He is going thorough so much but is still extremely dedicated to his students. Even if he has to be away for one day, he leaves us in good hands

Was my Grade 9 music teacher in 1993 .. made me have appreciation for the Tuba! Always said 'hi' even though I didn't pursue music after grade 9 :)
