I had Holtzman the first year he was at Smithtown. I thought he was very different. He made us stand on our desks in order to wake us up. I even argued with him about a grade and he changed it. He can teach too.

Hysterical! makes the class so much fun. Economics was great with him and so was psychology! Just use common sense on his tests.

I received good grades in his class but only because I studied. He needs to stop trying to be cool and start acting like an adult/teacher. Grow up Holtzman.

He needs to teach instead of trying to be cool. I frequently catch him looking at the guys in the class. Needs to dress better.

his ego can't get any bigger, he thinks he's sooo cool, what does he even base his grades on?
