One of the best teachers I've ever had. He is a very honest person but can be hard to approach for some people if they don't understand his humor. If they were to approach him, though, they'd probably find him to be extremely helpful.

Words cannot desribe this teacher. Simply one of the best teachers in Ward Melville. He easily connects with his students. He teaches at a socialist level but you won't be bothered by it at all. Amazing.

Mr. Sterne is an outgoing teacher who makes subjects interesting to learn. He goes above and beyond what most teachers do for kids and acts more as a mentor than a teacher. Sterne is the man.

Don't be brainwashed by Mr. Sterne. On many subjects he is right, and he does make you think outside the box. But he will push his opinion on kids. Don't buy into everything you hear from this man.
