Is Mr. Hrbek still teaching? 17 years after taking his class, Mr. Hrbek is still by far the most memorable and impactful history teacher I ever had. His unit on the spice trade, featuring the Orange preserving experiment and his colorful descriptions of press gangs for the British navy are still with me to this day. I hope the board of ed takes note to train a lot more like this guy!

Mr. Hrbek forgot more than most educators know today. He is an inspiration to learn. His approach to what is history made all of us who were lucky to have him as a teacher one of the great educational experiences of our lives. Rather than parrot a lesson plan, Mr. Hrbek opened windows of history a daily experience.

The best teacher at Wagner. I had him for honors social studies back in 1979. He was thorough and he was funny and made the class interesting.

I didn't find Mr.Hrbek's teaching style very challenging I can't remember much of what he taught b/c he was too busy trying to be funny and did not think much of his sense of humor

I had this teacher in 1974! I can still remember his handwriting from all the notes he would write on the board. He was really funny and loved to tease.

Mr Hrbek was the best Social Studies teacher ever! I was in his class in 1987. His humor and wit made learning that much fun.

You'll learn your stuff if you can handle his good natured abuse.
