I had him as a teacher at Captain Shreve High School in Shreveport during/after Hurricane Katrina. I know he came from a prestigious magnet school, so he was for the most part dealing with kids who didn't appreciate his teaching skills. I loved this dude, he was totally in tune with American History and had the same kinds of opinions on social matters that I did. This guy cannot be beat, by far, hands down the best teacher I ever had. Very funny and articulate. I hope he crosses my path in the future.
If you want to learn French after French 2, skip French 3. :)
Still singing from history class 10 years ago: "And they're all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same"
Mr Laventhal is an incredibly nice person. Unfortunately, he teaches like a history teacher, not a language teacher. He forgets that you need to memorize things
Mr. Laventhal is sooo cool! Makes French funny! :-D I'm glad I have him again for French 3! :)
he cares so much about his students and inspires them to be their best. He also makes you beleive in yourself. But cant always say what he knows.
I hate french, but i really enjoyed having a chance to get to meet Mr. Laventhal. Has a great sense of humor.
Very nice teacher, great sense of humor, and genuine caring for the students. Knows what he's talking about, but often has touble teaching it all.
mr. laventhal is so cool! he's a pretty good teacher, but he's just so hilarious! and who else would have a piano in their classroom?
Mr. Laventhal is the COOLEST!! He genuinely cares. Great Sense of humor. Question: Why does a French Omlet have 1 egg? Because one is Un Oeuf!
one of my favorite teachers! he is so cool and nice and i LOVE his stories!!!
Hilarious guy, will never forget the time he taught from ato his desk
made history interesting, prepared me for independent study habits in college
Great teacher. Honest and sincere. Full of funny stories and makes history fun.
one of my inspirations. A model of sincerity, humour, and intelligence.
