He's hilarious. His mood swings can be dramatic at times; sometimes he throws chairs out of his rooms. He gives you the answers to the tests and the homeworks are all generally easy.

Great teacher, he has sudden mood swing sometimes but other than that he is great. He tells us the answers of the tests the day before and he explains anything that we are unsure of.

Mr. Elstein's a funny guy. He teaches 9th Grade History like a college course and doesn't really give too many notes and lectures instead. But he'll go off on these segues about life lessons and going to college and how much he loves the 50s... He's also very good when it comes to reviewing. He's VERY good with reviewing. He's kinda mood-swingy and ranges from childishly happy to El-Diablo angry, but most of the time he's a cool dude.

whoa mr. elstein can be weird. sometimes hes really happy and makes jokes but other days he just screams at the class for no reason! you never get gradesheets, so if you want to keep track of what your grade is, he is definitely not for you. the only assignments you get returned to you are major tests, and even those you don't get sometimes. but he is a nice person. deeply troubled, but yes, he is a good person.

Elstein is probably the worst thing about Whitman. Incredibly insecure and has no idea what he's talking about, whether in class or outside of it.

By his own admission, he has a couple of neuroses. Maybe a little unbalanced sometimes.
But he's always good for a laugh. Always ready to help out and discuss matters after school or during lunch. He's a pretty cool guy.
