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.

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
