Love Mr. Rubin! Had him this year for AP gov and I must say he makes sure we all understand the readings and government concepts. His class has a really chill feel, and his puns never fail to get a chuckle out of the class. It is truly a pleasure to be his student!! As long as you work hard and do the readings, getting an A in his ap gov was not too hard.

Had him for honors freshman history. I used to hate history and be bad at it, but his class & teaching changed that! Make sure you listen in class to the lectures. He's very knowledgeable about history. Also, use the study guides! study guide = test. He's funny cause he has a satirical sense of humor, but his class can be boring at times. Chill guy, he has a drumset in his room! I didn't like him so much at the beginning of the year but by the end you really end up appreciating his class.

He is a very good teacher. I found him to be my favorite teacher. He teach student to read and find info for their own which is good. In his class, if u turn all your hw and CW, you have a high chance of getting an A.

A great teacher, the content of his lecture is great and he is really funny. The only issue is that he speaks in a monotone voice. What he says is interesting, he just says it in a boring tone.

He's a really good teacher. He knows his material very well. People think he's boring, but he teaches material well. If you take notes, and use his study guides, it's impossible not to do well.

Awesome. Ask him about his stories. He's got a ton. Great if you're into gov't and history. and if you're not, don't pretend like that's his fault.

Boring. 3 sections of notes for hw per class. Thinks he's interesting w/ his ppt... everyone sleeps. Easy to pick on. Can't control class. Nice, but timid. Too timid. Loses respect. SO BORING. Doesn't explain things well. Has to repeat over and over b/c so boring nobody pays attention. (:

Much more of a social studies teacher than a history teacher. This means that there is much less emphasis on specific dates and people, and more on cause-effect

MUN seems more like a period for political debates + off-topic discussions than an actual class. But that's cool. Just bs for the conferences + youre good to go
