Mr. Towber is truly really nice man. I had the pleasure of having him in 9th grade and I took Art History. He has a great sense of humor and is very forgiving and lovely. Just don't mess with him please. He is so nice !!! He knows a lot about a lot. In class he usually just lectures and his test and quiz are just based on the textbook and stuff we learned in class. It is not hard if you just study. I miss him everyday. One of the best teachers I had at Hunter and best class everrr ~~~

I had Mr. Towber in 7th grade, and he was hilarious. I love the way he accents his syllables. His tests are easy if you study at ALL and while he sometimes gives a bit of homework, it's never anything unmanageable. You will get a good grade if you show effort, even if you are a terrible artist. He does hate people who goof around excessively in class and do his homework in 5 minutes, though. Those people tend to get iffy grades (below a B ) and are often the butts of his jokes.

You cant tell when he's serious and when he's not. You can't tell when he's about to blow the roof off and when he's just cracking a joke. So random. Epic teacher. =)

Insane. Mood Swingy. The best damn art teacher ever. He hardly counts tests (which is wonderful considering no one ever does the text book reading and ends up cramming/failing) and makes the best jokes ever.

You can fail all of his homeworks, tests, and quizzes, but he'll still give you a good grade like A+. Also very hormonial, changes from trying to be funny to outrageously mad back to being funny. : )

Hilarious, but if you ask him a serious question, there's no guarantee how serious his answer is. I hated that class (partially that, partially because I don't like art class in general)

Corny but hilarious jokes. Keeps on changing his first name. Can't ever tell if he's serious or not. Can't ever know for sure if he was joking or being serious. But nevertheless, Art was my most favorite class.
