David Silberstein was my High School Biology teacher in 92-93. His pedagogical parlance was second to none, and had a particular knack for capturing and maintaining his students' attention. Student comprehension was paramount to Mr. Silberstein, and I can honestly state that of every teacher I had, Silby was by far the most dedicated, most entertaining and most memorable. I scored a 96 on the regents due to his teaching method.
