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.

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 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.
