Mr Estberg was quite possibly the best teacher I've ever had. His friendly personality and investment in each and every student was obvious in everything he did. I can't believe he's been gone for a year.

Mr Estberg was a highlight of new trier. His bright smile and bubbly personality lit up every room he walked into. He always seemed at home conducting us in freshman boys chorus. I was looking forward to another 3 years working with him but I feel honored I even got to spend one year under his care. Rest In Peace Mr. Estberg. I miss you so much

Mr. Estberg is such a nice, genuine, energetic, caring person. He believed in all of his students, and gave us all numerous opportunities to succeed. I still remember how I would buy cookies and other snacks to bring into Lagniappe meetings.

Mr. Estberg was unlike any other teacher I've ever had. He truly tried his hardest to make each and every of his students feel like a part of the chorus. He was such a nice and funny guy, and it was impossible not to love him. He made going to chorus something that I would look forward to, and he was one of the reasons that made my freshman year amazing. I knew I could go to him if I had trouble with anything, not just singing. I miss you Mr. Estberg <3

I know him from my choir and I already loved him! He was so helpful getting me to sign up as a student at New Trier after the deadline. In our chorus class, he is by far the best teacher I have had in my life! He is funny, thoughtful, kind, sweet, and once, while we were singing "I sing because I'm happy", a Gospel song, he yelled joyfully, "SING IT GIRLS!" BEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE

ESTBERG. First of all, his middle name is Norman, so go make fun of him for that. Secondly, he's a great teacher, and is really open to help. If you are having trouble, just talk to him, and try to see him outside of class. He's also takes into account that you've gone to see him while grading tests, so he might go a bit easier on you. He can be a tough grader, so you have to study. This guy is my favorite teacher, and a funny, awesome guy. He's good at insults, so beware! :) LOVE

Mr.Estberg is a very hard teacher, but he is SO helpful! He takes time to answer questions in class, is amazing if you see him outside of class for help, and even put up the solutions (with work) to particularly hard hw problems. He sometimes curves test and gives very little extra credit (always difficult), so be sure to do your hw and know the material well for the quizzes/tests!
