I can honestly say that no teacher has had as much of a positive impact on my life. I know those are big words to live up to, but I'm sitting here in my office, I'm 30 years old now, and I can trace everything that has happened up to now from one big push Mr. Rothenberg gave me just before summer break in 2000.
He gives a lot of work but gives a lot of extra credit and really high grades. I believe most people get at least a 95 on the report card.
He gives a great amount of workload, however, don't panic he gives out really good grades too. He has a good sense of humor. you'll find his class interesting. He always gives advice to students and lets you resubmit anything u dont get above 90 on. Gives alot of extra credit and gives over 100 on many assignments. I suggest you not to transfer out. Over all very good teacher.
I have mixed feelings about him. He is incredibly friendly and funny. He's always having casual one-on-one conversations with his students that are delightful. That being said, he gives an incredible, even absurd amount of work. Few of us are ever going to use the skills ever again, so it doesn't make sense to be expected to put so much effort into the class. I don't understand think Mr. Rothenberg realizes how much work he makes us do.
Great teacher! The workload may be painful, but it's worth it in the end, if you put effort into them all. Great greater! Easy to do well if you participate and laugh at his jokes (I'm not even kiddin
Amazing teacher. Great sense of humor and is wonderful at teaching. Loves what he does, and a great inspiration. I highly recommend taking his Advanced CAD and Architecture classes.
chill guy and is funny once u get used to his humor. super patient and loves to have conversations with students. put in some time and u'll get kickass grades. drafting is pretty fun, but takes time
LOL he's so random and his projects take so long to do but easy grader
His projects are time consuming, but aren't hard if you follow the directions and pay attention to the demos in class. He has a great sense of humor and is really helpful and understanding. Weird tho
SOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard but gives good grades and is a great person. Louis Armstrong is great!
GIVES A LOT OF WORK! But, if you work diligently (I stayed up till 3 AM doing his projects) you will do very well. I got a 97 on the final because of his awesome teaching. You can guess my average =P
Gave a 96 to a guy who didn't do two of his projects!
I loved Mr. Rothenberg! He was a very sweet and helpful teacher, and understood if we couldn't get the assignments in on time; although he gives a lot of work, he grades based on the effort you put in
Great teacher but gives tremendous amounts of work and little time to complete it.
I was TERRIBLE in drafting but still got a good grade cause he's VERY nice! Tries hard to make sure you get the material, great teacher, highly recommend him!
Absolutely oblivious to the fact that kids have other classes and need time to breathe between projects.
He gives a lot of work, but you can tell he's into what he's teaching and he cares about his students. He tries to be funny and knows his jokes are lame, but he does it to make your class more inters
They better inflate the grades cause I spend so much time on his work...hours a night..
Rothenberg is awesome! As long as you do ALL your work (thats a lot of work btw) you'll get at least 90 plus, if you're somewhat good at drafting, you'll get a 100.
had this guy for summer school english and he had the stones to use sparknotes for his lessons and tests. nice guy though, knows his stuff, if not english. sometimes goes off on long tangents
This guy is such a passionate teacher and an INCREDIBLE man. He gives a lot of work and it is definitely a hassle, but you learn to live through it. Regardless, he is a great person and is VERY fair with grades.
Had Rothenberg in '94. Looking back, he's corny, but he's a good guy and encouraging.If you feel bored, just ask him for more challenges.You'll have to do that with college profs, too. I work in architecture still thx2him.
nothing to do? feel like dritfing away into the late hours of night/early hours of morning doig nothing but drafting? TAKE ROTHENBERG. nonetheless, great grades. AWESOME PERSON THOUGH. he knows his stuff, really great guy
Unless you don't have any work in other classes to do and like waste 2-3 hours doing drafting every other day, I suggest you TRANSFER OUT.
So much work for such a pointless class! Jokes corny, grades inflated. its ok, i guess.
Corny jokes, but inspired me to consider a career in Architecture. Probably is the teacher that wil affect my life the most. Great teacher, but an even greater person.
he calls on you when you least expects it, time consuming assignments, not so funny jokes. easy grader, but come on... it's drafting.
AWESOME MAN...makes lots of jokes....and talks to the tv LOL
coolest person in the school...make sure u have a jumshot if u go 2 his class
nice guy. gives a lot of work. be one of his favorites.
he's probably the best teacher in the whole school- i looked forward to his drafting class every day
