I have him for APUSH and it's obvious he knows his stuff but I'd rather he put up pre-written notes on the SMART!board than take 20 minutes to write questions down on the whiteboard. when he walks his tic-tacs are kind of loud but i do pretty well on his quizzes if i study.

Had Mr. Fishman for U.S History and if you everything he asks, I guarantee you will score in the high 90s. He does his job perfectly and explains everything completely clear. He'll give minimal assignments from an online textbook each week. JUST DO IT!!! Trust me, you'll succeed in his class if you do the work.

Mr. Fishman was a great, knowledgeable, effective, unbiased teacher who did his job. He knew a lot about the history of the United States and every test that he gave was relevant to what we learned in class. Highly recommended

Mr.Fishman is a nice and reasonable man.He engages the students in History, but his teaching style is very boring. I usually use my phone in his class. He likes to make things easier for the studnets concerning test and homework. I would not recommend him for Ap U.S History.

Almost everyone I know hates Fishman and complains about his teaching. Super boring, never paid attention in class, but I passed the regents! He curses at us under his breath all the time, it's funny though. He is smart though. He just cant teach.

People say he's schizophrenic, but that's a big fat lie. He just goes through a lot of stress. You people don't know what he goes through.

A very knowledgeable teacher. He isn't strict at all, as long as you do your work... (like any class) He is kinda cheapp with the grades though. People make fun of him, but it's out of pure ignorance, because he's is pretty good teacher.

This teacher broke my heart because I've got 4 points lower on the final marking period, and usually the test he give, the key has wrong answers, so you better ask to see the test yourself

Mr. Fishman is the best history teacher Ive ever had. He's smart and understanding, and he keeps the class interesting;don't be mad because you all failed. He helped me ace the US regents with a 98!<3

He's SUCH a bad teacher. It took him a couple of months (and I mean the first two marking periods) to recognize my face. I have 20+ absences on my report card in total because of that.
