Mr. Montera is the most knowledgable teacher I know. He somehow knows details about every minor event in history (american and every other country.) One class you can discuss the economic crisis in Columbia and the next he will be telling you about his juvenile childhood. With each essay you feel yourself getting more and more comfortable with writing and his footnotes will guide your success. I never failed to look forward to history and he is an incredible mentor.

One of the best teachers you will ever have. His ability to relate things to his students is absolutely amazing. Writing 1 essay a week is tough, but it's really helpful and you learn more from writing and researching instead of just reading textbooks. Get ready for the class of your life. :)

One of the most amazing teachers of all time. Had an uncanny ability to relate subjects to students and explain complex historical context and bring it to life. An avid grader, he would regularly grade 20-page papers for an entire class, carefully marking up the entire paper. I've never been more challenged and learned more in a class than with Bob.

A great teacher, but at times the class can become very difficult. Most are marked up on their final grade though, so it all works out in the end.

He is easily one of the best teachers you will have at Fieldston. Class is always quirky, it may be having kids run to the field goal to pray for forgiveness from the history gods or the renaissance

the most unclear person in the world. does not teach in a chronological order. only tells stories that are uninteresting and do not pertain to history. the one thing i remember is the world dutch tulips. we had no tests because of a lack of learning anything. our essays were not hard but rather ridiculous concepts that were never explained.

hes clearly intelligent and an entertaining teacher but if you get him for ninth grade history you are screwed. he teaches in a completely un linear way and is disorganized. he avoids dates at all costs and his class gets boring.
