In the New Milford High School  math wing you can find Mr. Jeffrey Fiscina. Back in Lodi High School, Mr. Fiscina was voted most school spirited and was the school’s mascot during his senior year. He graduated in 2005 and attended William Paterson University for five years. As of right now, Mr. Fiscina is looking to get into graduate school for educational leadership.

Being a teacher for six years, Mr. Fiscina has such a great passion for it. He teaches ninth grade algebra and tenth grade geometry. Ever since he was in school he wanted to be a math teacher.

“I knew I wanted to be a teacher because the other subjects didn’t inspire me. Math was a natural fit and the best subject I could teach.”

Meghan Torregrossa (‘19) stated, “I like the way he teaches because he’s funny and he makes real life connections.”

Iyette Tokko (‘19) added, “The thing I like about Mr. Fiscina is that he has good humor. I think he teaches great because I’m actually learning stuff.”

Kalvin Ormello (‘19) said, “ I like the way he interacts with his students. Even though we could be doing serious work or prepping for a test, he always makes it fun to learn and enjoy.”

Madison Lester (‘18) said, “ I like that he’s genuinely interested in his students and doesn’t give up on them.”

Teachers are there to help. They have their own  little ways of helping their students understand the topic at hand. When it comes to math, it could be difficult, since it’s so straightforward and to the point. However, Mr. Fiscina has managed to make it easier to understand.

Tokko adds, “He explains step by step and if I need help he explains it again and makes it easier, some tips he gives me are how to do short cuts on some problems and equations. He stays after school if anyone needs help and he’ll make sure you get it before he moves on with a lesson.”

Lester said, “He helps me by explaining stuff after school and giving me second chances on tests and homework. Whenever I am stuck he tells me to reread my notes.”

Ormello can relate. “Mr. Fiscina has helped me a lot. I used to be bad at math but I have gotten so much better. His methods of teaching math are easier than the years before. He shows us how to get to the problem the original way but then after that he shows us other methods to solve the problem, so math is easier now.”

Just like many other teachers, Mr. Fiscina has his own tips he likes to share with his students. “What I keep on trying to enforce upon my students is to be active in your learning.  Many students feel it’s best to wait for their teacher to solve the problem but it’s better to make mistakes and learn from them.”
