Best teacher ever. The history lessons are pretty good, but it's the life lessons you learn that really matter. The resume, the worth of time and money, juggling (commitment and accomplishing a goal), setting a battle plan, linking, all of that. His words are priceless, and I am honored to be one of his students. Right now, you might not agree with him or understand everything he says, but remember his lessons. They really will come to help you in the future. wisdom+dark humor=Haskvitz + denali
Mr. Haskvitz was the best teacher any student could ask for. He by far has been the most knowledgable teacher I have even come across. It's saddening to know that future students of Suzanne Middle School will not have the opportunity to learn from him but at least the students he did teach will pass on his knowledge of Cornell Notes and Propaganda to the next generation. He's truly the best.
Mr. Haskvitz retired this year. We were his last class. Reading through the other remarks posted about him the word "great" is the one most used. He is unique, funny, and a blessing. His resume' idea to motivate you is a godsend. His linking and notetaking are useful, but most importantly, he is constant and caring. No wonder he was won the most teaching awards in the nation. Those students in coming years will be deprived of a great learning experience.
Great teacher! Old man who makes funny (slightly offensive) jokes. There are a lot of life skills and history content you can learn from him. In his class, you only learn history to gain the skills you need for life, and his methods truly work. Listen to him, hes actually really nice if you talk to him, even though he may seem like he does not care. Take notes,listen to him,follow directions, and do the work and this will be an easy class. Hardest part of his class- hearing him.DO THE JUGGLING!
Mr. Haskvitz is a good teacher, albeit with a very dark sense of humor (Cinderella on drugs?) He teaches clearly and well, and gets straight to the point. He knows the best ways to retain knowledge and understand material. As long as you study, take notes, and pay attention, his class will be the easiest you have ever taken. He is a rather quiet man though, and for that reason doesn't get the respect he deserves. The personality he puts forth is a little unsettling, but he is an approachable man
Mr.Haskvitz is a great teacher that has taught me a lot about American History.
Great teacher. He will teach you to think.
Mr. Haskvitz is the best teacher you could have. He is the type you remember. Instead of using the entire year to go through the book, he teaches you to go through it quickly and reviews THE ENTIRE BOOK several times. You'll be able to teach the book yourself at the end of eighth grade to all your friends. He is a great teacher and really encourages the students to work and try to do new things. He deserves A rating!
Best teacher ever!!! Cornell notes ftw!! :D whoo
He knows what he is doing and expects everybody to know exactly what he is saying. As long as you follow directions and go above and beyond what is given you will ace that semester.
Haskvitz is a really easy teacher. When you first enter his class, it's really hard because you're not used to his way of teaching. After you get used to it though, it's really easy. He also skips the useless stuff in the txtbk, making it easier.
He is the best teacher ever. I was scared at first, but once you get to know him, he is the best teacher ever. He goes over the main points and skips all the useless stuff. Mr. Haskvitz has such dark humor. (Cinderella is on drugs lol)
MR. HASKVITZ IS THE BEST TEACHER EVER! He honestly taught me so much and I hope that he will continue to educate more people in the years to come.
Best history class ever, period. Just study hard the first semester and the rest of the year will be super easy
He is the most helpful teacher. In the beginning of the year you will probably struggle a little, but listen to what he says it really works. He is really funny and strict. Just study and you will be fine. If you dont study prepare to fail. :)
At first, Haskvitz seems like a really scary teacher. But over time. You'll begin to like him a lot. He gives 2 test a week, and to some periods that need it, he gives out daily test. He made the CSTs really easy. I wish I can have him again. At the end of the year we do a musical and it's actually funner than you think! SO. Haskvitz is hard, but cool. He makes fun of you. But he's a pretty neat teacher to have! So. Do your three transfers and juggle. And his class'll be fine. (:
Amazing. Tons of friends who have him, they finished the text book within a few months. He's so dedicated to what he does, but makes it fun as he teaches. The biggest thing I learned from him (That isn't extremely serious and job oriented): Juggling = Concentration O.o Any other students know what i mean.
Mr Haskvitz is a great teacher, says my daughter Ashley. He taught her the most out of all her enrollments in schools.
Thanks Mr. Haskvitz
awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwesome he is a great teacher. a great asset to suzanne middle school. i wish he taught me in every subject. better than expected.
A really really good teacher. He is funny and gives you clear information. He is misunderstood, but I think he has a wonderful teaching method.
I heard from people that he was evil, but I thought he was brilliant. I'm a Wikipedian, so I just loved his jokes and trivial knowledge. Best Teacher Ever.
I came into class afraid and left ready for the world. His student's state test scores are the highest in California. If you are lazy or looking for an easy don't take him. He was chosen best in world
For some reason, everyone thinks Haskvitz is an evil teacher, but he is perhaps the best that has ever been at Suzanne for quite some time. His class isn't hard as long as you study, and is also fun.
BEST TEACHER THAT EVER LIVED. he will teach you sooo much stuff
He's a pretty tough teacher but if you do all the right homework and follow what he tells you to do, he's the best teacher yet!
good teacher.. lots of work but after all worth it.. i like his jokes too. XD as long as u do all the hw RIGHT you will have a no hard time getting A in his class
Absolutely great teacher, teaching how to think. Much better than any other teacher at Suzanne.
most wonderful teacher I've ever had. truly helpful and has these "miracle" techniques
mr. haskvitz it really cool, LOL. but i still cant get an A in his class!! haha
This man is HARD. He is godly in teaching. You'll hate his guts at first, but soon you will love him. This man is GENIUS.
At the beginning of the year, his class is difficult. But by the end of the year , it's a breeze. Plus, I love his shirt.
I love this teacher, I love his sense of humor, and everything about him. He class is wasn't that hard in my opinion. We also learned how to juggle, which was really fun.
You might not appreciate him in the beginning, but he is one of the most influential and hard-working teacher that you will ever have. Don't have a bad mood and just work hard this is a great class.
Mr. Haskvitz is the most helpful teacher ever known to man! I'll admit he is hard in the begining but later on in the year, he gets easier ... if you do your work. He helps you A LOT for high school.
i loved this class. so easy. i really learned alot in here. He doesnt give much homework and you could tell if it is due by asking the other classes. i was in the gate class and got an A easiest thing
man i hated this dude but he was the best teacher ever at the end of theyear you realise hard teachers are the Best I love him soo much he is the best!!!!!!!
at first it seems hard, but then he's so cool, he'll let you do anything you want & he's hilarious, perpares you REALLY good for highschool
Mr. Haskvitz was my favorite teacher ever. I learned a massive amount in his class, and his teaching methods are incredible. Just don't trust your first impressions; you'll love him in the end.
BEST TEACHER IN THE WORLD.at first, you might not like him, but at the end of the year, you'll realize that you went through the textbook 3x & the other classes only went through it once.
Mr. Haskvitz is really the best teacher I have ever had. and the saying, "All I ever really needed to know I learned in Haskvitz" is definitely true. Without his help, I wouldn't be where I am today.
"All I ever really needed to know I learned in Haskvitz"--this phrase encapsulates Haskvitz's class. He does not teach students history per se; rather, most students learn how to learn in his class
He is one of the best teachers Middle School kid just done realize it
He's a really good teacher. Though throughout the school year i didn't appreciate when he did to prepare us it actually pays off
At the beginning of the year everyone hates him because of the hard work. But after, he's really awesome and you learn alot.
Mr Haskvitz is the best teacher I've had in my entire life! Although everyone hated him in the beginning for being boring and mean, once everyone got to know him, everyone loved him!
very good jokes. quizzes u get used to in like a couple months. doesnt teach much, but he does do some lectures which are pretty good.
He is very hard but you learn a lot. His quizzes are a big pain.
My children both still write him and they are both in highly rated universities largely thanks to Mr. Haskvitz. If you want your children to be prepared he is the best.
he is very harsh, and you wont like him much, unless you're very good at self-teaching. i suggest that you go over the stuf yourself, but his lectures are entertaining.
he is hard and harshbut he is preparing us for high school
It is the end of November. I have never learned so much. Haskvitz teaches you how to learn. In September his students from high school and college came back to thank him. Only the lazy dislike him.
Unpopular at first, but after awhile, they will come to like his class more than others. Because he works you so hard, the CAT6-History is a breeze, & pre-IB in high school is not so time-consuming.
This guy prepares you for the future. This is no easy class. Work hard. He gives projects frequently and quizzes twice a week. But he is a great teacher. He helps you alot. Gets you organized.
My daughter and son both had him. He taught them how to study, get organized and not make excuses. He challenges them. If your only concern is a high grade from an easier teacher go elsewhere.
I am graduating thanks to Haskvitz. He taught me how to organize, study, be responsible. Only lazy students dislike him. At WHS his students do better. He is the national teacher of the year.
Mr. Haskvitz is the best and worst teacher you can have in middle school. We got through the book pretty fast. His class is far from easy, but it's worth it in the end. Teaching methods are interestin
a good teacher but DRY jokes and i CANNOT read his writing-_-
Mr. Haskvitz, or we call him Mr. Hasky, but he doesn't know that. He gives too much hw, too many quizzes and projects, strict, dry sence of humor, boring, but is trying to help you
Mr.Haskvitz class is pretty easy once you get used to studying for his test, he prepares well for highschool, I learned alot from his class although I had to work hard
For beginners, this class is certainly not easy, nor is Haskvitz helpful, nor clear, and not at all popular.Except, his teaching methods have proven successful....con't on next box
He can be strict, but his class prepares you for high school.
Great, except for the THREE Projects at a time thing, and he's a little too over-confident about himself. He's not very helpful, though..."Train your brain", "What do you think???"
This class is incredibly helpful to avoid being a hobo. On a scale from 0 being the worst and 100 being the best, haskvitz gets a 97 A ^_^ could make the class a bit more interesti
He's the best! changed my life a lot. im so glad i had him.
Haskvits can get old, but it's funny to make fun of him when he makes fun of you... He's burnt out...
haskvitz is cool and he wants u ppl to do great so u can do the same in high school good luck hehe
Mr. H is REALLY hard because he teaches like a high school teachr! But he is so cool and helps us a lot thru history!
100 pages...you're lying. He got most of us high school students thru school. If you get to HS ask anyone who the best teacher is and its always, Mr. H.
His teaching methods really prepare you for High school
sometimes he is really strict but then he is still a great teacher~ ;]
oh man! Haskvitz can be a pain... a big pain but when it all comes down to it, Haskvitz can be one of your favorite teachers for life.
Mr. Haskvitz can be strict and give alot of homework... but you'll learn soon enough that his classes will help you all through life...
Mr. Haskvitz is awesome! He will help yous so much in the future although he is EXTREMELY tough
If you are lazy you won't like him. If you want to do well in high school, he's your best bet.
He made me successful in IB and besides his class is so easy comparing to any class in IB
Mr. Haskvitz is one of the best teachers i've ever had!! ^^ i'm happy i was in his class...
i really learned a lot from him. i do well in history b/c of him.
i will never forget the things that he has taught me. he offered me so much when other teachers were being forced to even give up a pittance of teaching.
