Mr. Farrenkopf was BY FAR my favorite teacher, and one of the best New Canaan High School had to offer. Very easy person to talk to. YOU ROCK MR. F!
I had Mr Farenkopf for business law and he is the most honorable and outstanding teacher I ever had in the New Canaan School System k-12. 200 characters is too short to explain his greatness.
I had this guy for law in 1991 and he was one of the most caring and productive teachers I ever had.
Too bad I was only in the class for two weeks (an eighth of a semester)...I loved the class though I wish I hadn't had to switch out it was so sad. ;-(
At first I hated him in the begining of the year, but it got better towards the end of the year
Civics was so much fun. I loved this class. Lots of fun projects and debates. It was great & really gets you into politics. Very easy class & he's a really nice, fun guy. WELCOME TO CIVICS ONLINE.
assigns way too many pointless essays; i'd rather actually learn something and take chapter tests. he should transfer to college teaching, somewhere far FAR away from CT
he seems like he would be a nice person but he just dosnt know how to teach. he isnt able to chage himself for diffent students learning styles. he is has his way and thats it.
Cares, social studies is never the same after taking him, is always willing to give you a chance.
he's friendly enough but teaching is just not his calling.
Farrendawg is awesome!!! Taught everything that is important in that class and then some.
He teaches things you must know or need to know. He doesn't waist time on history for the sake of teachig history. Cares about his students - puts them first.
BOORING-likes to take U.S. history and turn it into a year of civil rights crap. Lame assignments that take lots of busy work to get done. UGh-drop this class.
Constantly giving pointless assignments that are long, tedious, boring, and have no outcome. We dont learn anything from the majority of the assignments fromhim
I love dougy.... the sweetest, nicest teacher ever.... he really loves his students and he writes solllllllid college recs!
I think that Douglas Farrenkopf Is an outstanding teacher. He is very herlpful and creates a good learning environment for students of all levels to learn in.
He knows his stuff, cares about every student, can be funny at times, appears to really enjoy his teaching and students. - I have learned more than I ever had in the past about social studies and how to use it.-Thanks dougyfresh!
TOO ARROGANT! cool it, farrenkopf, you dont know THAT much
Cares about his students and is realistic about assignments
OK teacher...he still calls me Major after watching Stargate freshman year
I actually liked him as a person, as a teacher, he was a little off.
