Mr. Benack is one of my all time favorite teachers, I still go to visit him!! He is not only one of the nicest people but he cares so much about each and every student and helping them achieve. I struggled in math until he sat down with me and showed me how it was done. He really truly cares about each and every one of his students

Mr. Benack was hands down one of the best math teachers I have ever had. He really cares about each of his students and will take time out of his day just to give one student extra help, and he takes time after school to give extra help as well. He is hilarious and his class is always a great time. Some people think he's difficult, but some find him pretty easy. He's such a great guy and an awesome teacher!

His tests are difficult, but if he is always willing to help a student, and if you study for his tests, a good grade in his class is not incredibly hard. His tests and intense preparation have made the midterm and regents very easy.

Mr. Benack strives to help his students as much as he can, from after school meetings, to one on one meetings, to mid term review study sessions, to retaking of tests. A understandable guy who makes learning fun but a little difficult. Teaching methods are great and he is great at getting a point across. One of the best math teachers at Greeley... But a tough Enriched Algebra teacher. That toughness leads his students to great math years to come

He's a good teacher, but he is far from the best math teacher I've had. He explains the work well and does his best to help students, but he really holds grudges against students that he almost just decides that he doesn't like. He's always getting involved with my business and he contradicts himself all the time.

Mr. Benack is a teacher who really cares about his students like they're his own children. He has all of values in the right place. Sure, his classes are a step up from past years, but he was always willing to offer his help and support your learning. His teaching style is impeccable and very clear. While his expectations can be demanding and very specific, he is totally transparent about all his policies. If I were a parent, he's the kind of person I would want as an influence on my children.

I was in Mr. Benack's class before I switched into another class and for the time that I was there, he was a great teacher, always prepared and very knowledgable about the subject. I've heard many people say that he has mood swings, but if you get on his good side (be agreeable, participate, etc) he will like you. The exams were not that hard in my opinion, and he always had extra help beforehand. definitely recommend!

Mr. Benack is impeccably prepared and gives everything he's got to help his students succeed. His exams are fair and reflect his lessons and HW assignments -- he even let us retake all 2nd semester exams (even individual questions!) for full credit so we could be exempt from the final exam. Use of technology: exceptional. He makes himself available for extra help with or without an appointment. Essentially, he just really cared about me as a student and, more importantly, as a person.
