He really expanded the minds of all students - and not just on his subject matter - he made one really think, and how to apply knowledge.
I was not the best student and Barry was a great teacher. I have now have 25 years of experience with working with manufacturers who make equipment for the military;F16,Tomahawk, Radar Jamming, Drone Communication Centers, Test equipment on the Eisenhower, etc.I turned my focus to the commercial world which includes the power plant in your region, the substation in your backyard, and the FAA radar Tracon that guides your plane to the runway. I wish Barry the best. John McGarty, Class '84
Barry taught me electronics in the late 80's. He was a great teacher - I still remember some basic electronics - more than I can say for some of my other High School classes.
I was a student years ago and yes he is a weird dude but he is a brilliant man and teacher any class that you are in of his will make you a better and more well rounded person in general...
hes very weird, he'll be totally cool and really funny one second thenyou make one move and he yells. gets the job done...you'll be using all his vocab by the end of the year
hey now, barry...try spending less time placing each student in the PERFECT position for demonstrations and move us along a little quicker.. then come back to me about us not finishing projects on time
Stop teaching one million times before letting us raise a finger
good guy, one of my favorite teachers. he teaches well and really cares about his students, despite the fact he can be strict sometimes. POE 2003/2004!
ok for sci research. has trouble remembering our names
THIS GUY IS THE PREZ OF THE TECHNOLOGY THINGY OF NY AND HAS RECEIVED AWARDS!!! SHOW HIM SOME RESPECT!
This guy is awesome. I walked in feeling crappy one day and he noticed my mood and just talked to me about it. Awesome guy and great teacher.
The only thing that pulled up my grade in bio research. i heart ya.
class of '99. borakove was extremely chill, and his engineering classes were fun and easy. you can't judge him unless you take one of his real classes.
Worst teacher ever. Sends people to the dean for smiling. Gives us reports without explaining them and then we get bad grades.
he doesnt make sense a bit of the time and he asks ALOT in the reports, which no one knows how to do. when he's in a bad mood...DONT MESS WITH HIM!
Best Teacher I had in Syosset. If you want to be an engineer TAKE HIS CLASSES!!
Moody, short tempered, rude, and has NO idea of anything that goes on.
My favorite teacher. Great activities. Approx 20 boring periods in entire year
real nice guy, let me take applied physics even though i wasn't in physics yet
One of the best teachers ive had. POE! Class of 2001!!
great teacher... doesnt know anything about physics tho
