Had him for US History Regents. The class was rushed but Mr.Specht prepared us as best as he could. An amazing guy with a great personality. He is super funny, and in advisory (Like a therapy session) he would crack me up. Overall great teacher, knows a lot

From what I've seen, Mr. Specht is not a good teacher. All he does is stand up comedy and socializes with kids that are younger then him. The only reason why people like him is because of his jokes.
