Mr lipsky is simply amazing. He treats each student with the most respect I have ever seen. I love how he calls us ms. or mr. Soandso as we call him mr lipsky. He is the smartest person I know and is enlightened in all categories whether it be in academics or just in life. He's a great role model and the passion and dedication he has for his students is uncanny. He makes mediocre puns frequently that I understand 30 seconds after they are told but he is really understanding and kind. Thank you<3

The last rating made me think of my experience. I used to HATE how hard Mr. Lipsky's class was. I had to work all the time just to understand the homework before I could even start doing it. But now I'm an Engineering major and my classes are even harder, but thank to Mr. Lipsky, I'm ready. So if you are struggling in his class, don't complain - thank him. He knows what he's doing and I have him to thank for my 3.8 GPA in really hard math and science classes.

I find that Mr. Lipsky sometimes will give a complex explanation rather than a simple explanation to a struggling students which is due to his intellect. He's the most helpful teacher at South but his intellect makes it so that students who struggle don't understand what he is saying because he doesn't simplify his explanation enough. However, he is the most hardworking teachers that the school has to offer.

Mr.Lipsky is one of the best teachers a student can have. The fact that he is not teaching right now is both disappointing and ridiculous. He cares about his students and does everything in his power to be a good teacher as well as a great person. South high school needs to get him back, him not being there are causing kids to miss out on a wonderful opportunity.

I'm going to keep this short but I feel Lipsky was one of the only teachers that cared about us learning, not just how we reflect him. He was caring and did everything in his power to make sure you learned the material. Sometimes he was a little overwhelming with it, but he had us in mind. Highly recommend

He is one of those teachers that actually care about his students and if they do well or not, even if the student doesn't care about him/herself. If you need help in anything, he is always there and glad to help. He knows his stuff and teaches it well. I am very grateful to have know that these kinds of teachers still exist today. Well, his jokes are kind of corny, but you can't help but laugh along with everyone else. WHOO LIPSKY!

By far an excellent teacher who has a superior knowledge in his field. He knows how to explain problems without overwhelming and you come away knowing exactly what you need to know. He is a true teacher. Good personality and very likeable.Off the beaten path yet very cool. Doesn't try hard to be cool yet students like him and appreciate his ability to open their eyes where Math is concerned. May he have a long and great career. Any student would be lucky to have him as a teacher.
