My Math Hero

Ballwin, MO

#1 Aug 10, 2008
This man is my hero! He changed my life. He was one of the few teachers that welcomed me into the very intense Richland environment. Mr. Gisi always demonstrated that he truly wanted us to learn math.“Like signs add, Unlike signs subtract”, has stayed with me throughout my own flourishing teaching career. Thank you Mr. Gisi!!! Holla If You Feel Me!

I also had Mr.Gisi and I hated math but I always enjoyed his class because as long as you did your part you were fine but if you did't you were in trouble. The other teachers blamed everyone for everything and I never was a talker in class now the hallway was another story, but I never wrote as much as I did in Mrs. Ackmans class and I never said one word! That always p####@ me off!!

I was also in Mr. Gisi's class years ago and if you did not learn anything from him then you are not going to learn it at all. He was great!!

I love this man, he is a great guy.
in class Brad Clay, Greg Fowler, and myself sat in the front left corner along with Luke Patrick.
Luke would get to daydreaming and Gisi would catch him (normally after Brad or I pointed out this fact to get Gisi fired up), the blood vein in the center of his forehead would start to pound and he would yell "READ LUKE, READ", Luke would jump and look startled and then Brad or I would show Luke our book and point to where he should start reading. we always pointed to the wrong spot, and he would always start to read were we pointed and Gisi would come unglued. he would climb all over Luke, one day Luke told Gisi to stop attacking him and Gisi turned purple, anger was seething out and he just started shouting "attack, attack, I'll show you attack" finally he stopped, hung his head and just pointed to the door for Luke to leave.
Man those wear good days.

I remember Rachel Caldwell jumping my ass about looking at the clock one day in class. All I did was look up at the clock. Not like I did it alot anyway. She had her picks though and I don't guess I was one of them. Veleeta Stutts was another character. I never learned a damn thing in her class. LOL I guess I learned to type I'm doing that now. But she played the whole hour and everyone got A's... She was a horrible teacher now that I think about it, and being a parent myself. I liked Larry Gisi's class.I'm glad he got this recognition. George Cox too, I hope he is doing well. He really tried with everyone.

THE MAN one of the few teachers that really took time to work with the students. I had his class and you always knew when you messed up he always had the same words...11:56!!! The only time he freaked out our class he slammed a bat down on a vacant desk in front of student who was sleeping. Richland HS Lunch $3.00...Soda at lunch $1.25...Mr.Larry Gisi's math experience PRICELESS....

I hated Mrs. Caldwell. She always picked on the pretty girls and the slow students. Luckily I was neither so I floated under her radar. She could make you feel as low as whale sh**.

Mr. Gisi was a wonderful teacher. He wasn't fooled by the students who didn't use their full potential and would call them out in class. I was one of those students. He made sure we all knew we were valuable and that he believed in us. If it wasn't for the dumb counselor Mrs. Murphy putting me in his class when I made the grade to go into Algebra II, there is a good chance I would have given up on school altogether and got a job flipping burgers. Thank you so much for everything Mr. Gisi. You saved me. :)
