Great teacher, disproves the "those who can't do" stereotype. Makes a mean Batman (for Halloween).

Awesome guy! Mr. Zamansky is the reason stuy's cs department is one of the best in the country. I only wish he wore clean shirts a tad more often...

Bad teacher -- does not teach concepts needed to do the work. All over the place.

This man made me love Computer Science. He's funny, interesting, passionate, and extremely competent. He'll not only teach how to program, but also show that it's cool to be a CS student. Very chill teacher and will make class very fun for his students. Mr. Zamansky, or Z, as we call him, is the epitome of the type of teacher you'd expect at a school like Stuyvesant.

Mr. Zamansky helped me out whenever I needed. He's a great compsci teacher and all the sophmores are missing out cause as of 2011 he only teaches the AP course.

Mr. Zamansky is among the best teachers I have ever had. He's one of those types who, although has his random tangents, he knows how to get back on topic and teach his class. Very funny, relaxed, and

Cool teacher, knows his material. But if you don't have a decent understanding of cs going into his classes (ap and beyond), you'll be totally lost. Seems to play favorites.

A great teacher. Anybody who says he doesn't explain things well just isn't paying attention.

Not a great teacher (he tends to skim over stuff too much) but he's hilarious. His Halloween costumes are amazing.

Doesn't exactly teach. If you sit in the back of his room, you can't see anything he does on the main computer at all unless you move up, which when you actually get back to your seat, he already typed another page of code.
