The Z-man is a nightmare I had him a while back and he was a rude ego maniac who only cared about his precious IQ score than teaching 8th grade English. He could never be a High School teacher because the students who laugh at him. Horrible

He's a great teacher, even though he grades hard and isn't too clear on things. But he prepared me for high school, and that's all that really matters. Plus, he's hilarious, meaningful, and teases kids everyday.

I think he's a great teacher! When you get into 8th grade, you should already have basic english skills, and if you don't its your own fault. He's not going to teach you that. Prepare for a lot-o-work

Well, him playing Natasha Bettingfield on the first day of school pretty much sums up what he's like. His class did not prepare me for HS at all. Especially if you go into honors, you are screwed.

Mr.Zemansky is one of the best teachers i have ever had! all you had to do in that class was sit there and listen and it was not hard at all. He made me a beter writer, and he uses a paper i wrote about nunamaker as a SAT EX.

One of the best teachers I have ever had. To all the people below--why are you judging his teaching skills on the way he dresses? If you paid attention in his class at ALL, you'd learn something new. Awesome teacher.
