REALLY GREAT TEACHER. I had him as a geometry teacher like 2 or 3 years ago now im in college and i still remember what he taught. Now at times he does give a lot of work but its really simple, but more importantly really, really helpful. If you do his work and pay attention then for sure you're going to pass, and even get great grades in class, and reagents (i passed with a 97 or 98 :O).He knows what he is doing.

Mr.Goffner is one of the most organized and constructive teachers in this school. He may be a little annoying at times but he does it with good intentions. He teaches very well and if you don't understand it then it is because your are behind his teaching level. You can only understand if you try and he wants you to try. He is my favorite teacher. This teacher makes tests hard so we are more prepared for the regents and are more prepared in life!

He is actually a really good teacher if you listen to him . However, as a person he can be pretty annoying but you just have to know what to do. Know when to ask him questions etc. Don't cut his class , pay attention, do his hw and you will pass his class and of course the regents!

Goffner is one of those teachers that you just have to get used to. Lots of his kids tend to struggle in his class throughout the year, but by the end of it, the Regents looks like one of his homework assignments. I got a 97 on the Geometry Regents with him as my teacher. Just be sure to listen to him at all times or else you'll find yourself on his bad side rather quickly.

He is a great teacher. He knows what he is talking about. He helps you prepare for the Regents in June. To pace his class, all you have to do is his Home Work assignments.

i guess he's a good math teacher, pretty strict, but he actually cares about his students and never lets one slack off. i think he's kind of rude though -__- he can joke around sometimes too.

He's a neat freak about everything. If you play by his rules you're guarenteed to pass with a good grade. His homework is not as long as most people think, and you can cheat out of doing all of it.
