Mr. Maglio isn’t like all the other teachers. He originally didn’t want to be a teacher. He first worked in the restaurant business. One day he decided that he was tired of working so many hours and never getting any holidays off, so he decided to try out teaching. He also mentioned that he loves teaching people, however, he mentioned that he hated reading out loud, which is kind of odd for a teacher. Another thing Mr. Maglio hates is people being late, which he has to deal with a lot because of his job. 

Since Mr. Maglio has worked in several different restaurants, he considers himself a pretty good cook. In fact, he loves cooking and he makes some pretty impressive chocolate chip cookies, and if you’re lucky he might make some for your class. Mr. Maglio has many hobbies other than cooking, one of them is playing the drums. Sometimes you’ll even see him practicing in the band room. He originally lived in New York but then later moved to Florida, where he started getting into music. If you have ever walked by his room you may have noticed that it has a bunch of Rush posters hanging up. Well, that’s simply because he kind of has an obsession with Rush, his favorite band. Mr. Maglio also really likes The Beatles, he said that if he could bring any musician back from the dead it would be John Lennon, he believes that he still had music left in him. He also said that he would love to meet Paul McCartney because he loves the life that he has lived. Every day Mr. Maglio has a different quote, which is why I can understand when he was asked what his favorite quote was, it took him a while to answer. He said, “If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.” -N.P. Overall, Mr. Maglio is an amazing teacher and always will be. If you have him you are very lucky to have the best math teacher there is.
