Mr. Hollander is a great teacher. The only people I have ever heard don't like him, are the ones who could careless about education and school. Mr. Hollander is very knowledgable on modern history (1700's-today), from what I could tell anyway. Maybe he is just as good with prior history. The class was a brease for me because I was already very knowledgable on the topics discussed.

One of the best teachers I've ever had. Cares a lot about his students. He really helped us understand how politics and human behavior works with his famous lessons like the "shoe lesson," etc. I actually LEARNED a lot in his class- not just boring history facts, but the cause and effect chain of events- why certain political systems work better than others, how the government works, etc. Amazing, funny guy, best class I've ever taken!

Mr. Hollander is truly a blessing of a teacher. He dedicates so much to his students, and you can see how much he cares about every student. I'm a senior now and i had him in 8th grade, and he still knows me and asks me about my family. He makes learning so much fun and is so enthusiastic about his subject. He makes students look forward to learning and most of all, he helps people grow into better people.

He explains everything so well- we learned to look at the story of every topic, instead of a lot of the stupid irrelevant details that other teachers told me to focus on. He is definitely challenging, but that pushed everyone to work harder. He does not show favoritism and shows respect to his students. I have never heard him yell at a student, because he is the only teacher that doesn't need to since everyone listens to him! He is hilarious and makes learning fun.

One of my top 5 teachers without a doubt. Probably second best, following Mr. Horner. He takes social studies to a whole new level. He pulls everyone out of that slow and boring history class and teaches you so much more than facts and dates. You have to take his class to understand XD. Not only that, but he is funny as hell and loves jokes and whatever. Best class I ever took at Kennedy by far. And don't underestimate him, he will surprise you! ;)

His class may not be the easiest, but that's not a bad thing! He's a great teacher. He knows a lot about history. He challenges his students to think for themselves. He's just an excellent teacher overall. If you are going into his class, I can guarantee that you will love it. If you are a former student, I'm sure you can agree with me.

As a parent of 2 girls that took his class I will forever to grateful for his dedication to his craft. I have never seen a teacher so dedicated to making learning fun and so passionate about his job. I could go on forever. If I had a teacher like him for history, perhaps I would have actually enjoyed it and paid attention in class. Mr. Hollander is the definition of perfection as a teacher. End of story!

Ugh such a great teacher. Words can't describe his excellence and devotion to great teaching. I miss playing chronology so much and starpower and the time he threw a kid's shoe down the hallway. One of my favorite teachers at Kennedy.
