I have no doubt students would benefit greatly from any Communication courses with John. If I ever return to continue my education I’d be certain to find a course by John.

Mr. Baldino relates well to students on the junior high school and adult levels. I have always been impressed with the way he approaches any age level he teaches. I constantly hear feedback from students and parents about how effective Mr. Baldino’s teaching style is – not only in the classroom, but in the retreat setting as well.
