Orenstein was actually my English teacher at Halsey in '82-'83, and most certainly left a lasting impression. He cared about us, and pushed us to do our best. He saw every kid as an individual. These are traits of a great teacher. I made a career change four years ago and became a teacher myself, and I wish I could share my experiences with Orenstein. I pride myself on the fact that, just as Orenstein made important connections with each of his students, so do I. That is what allows us to soar.

Very simply, Mr. Orenstein was the best educator of mine. As a 24 year old I see that his classes were the most pedagogically innovative, intellectually demanding, & philosophically transformative.

I like him a lot. SS is a boring subject and he makes it interesting. He himself is really smart and knows what he is talking about. He is a really good teacher

Mr.Orenstein tried too hard to be our enemy. He would put us down constantly in class and made us unsure of ourselves.

Worst teacher I've ever had. Seems to love himself more than he loves teaching. No one liked him. He should retire
