Mr. Bach was one of my study hall teachers. He always has music playing whenever I walk in or pass his class, which makes my day. Although, I do not have him as a teacher, he seems like a pretty fun teacher! It was a pleasure being in his study hall this semester. ~Mark Lam

I don't even have Mr. Bach, I just hear him playing music from his classroom before his classes start. He is always clapping and greeting people. He's a day-brightener

Mr. Bach is the best history teacher i have ever had. He is smart, energetic, and makes teaching interesting. He is also a very fair grader in my opinion (meaning you will get the grade you work for). Also he grades his tests and essays very fast which shows that he is hard working at his job.

Bach is THE man. Walk in each day to him cheerfully outside the room with possibly the best music going off, and everyone who passes starts to smile and dance a bit. Great sense of humor, and cares about teaching. Anything from Jamestown to Roosevelt, and probably all facts - this guy knows. The class is a bit hard, but you will get used to it quick. Highly recommend. If you think there's a better teacher out there - you'd be wrong. Sorry. =)

Now this is a teacher who is the one of the rare exceptions- in that he can actually teach!! A class that is a pleasure to have taken. Fantastic ability to truly engage students and prepare for the regents. The regents seems to be all teachers try to prepare you for (and he certainly does prepare you well) but his class is more than just spitting facts and you truly do learn beyond the level most teachers seem to care to teach. If only all teachers at nisky were like Bach..

Mr. Bach is a great teacher. I really enjoy being in his class. He is a little hard, but you get used to that. The best part about him is that he understands that we are under a lot of stress, so he if okay if you have to hand in somehthing a little late once in a while, he is very understanding.

Definitely one of my favorite history teachers of all time. He is awesome. His class is never boring and I actually remembered what he taught. A little heavy on the essays though. I've come to appreciate that too just because now I can write essays in record timing.

Mr. Bach was the man. He was hard but you didn't mind doing the work because you felt you were getting something out of it. Yeah Tindle and Shi aren't that fun, but in class, that was always special.

A fair amount of work, yet is an engaging class where ideas can be discussed, and is much better than simply reading out of a textbook. Each class you leave knowing that you've learned something new.
