i absolutely LOVED Mr. Gerstien's class.! one of the most interesting/entertaining s.s classes I've ever taken. I honestly looked forward to U.S. history every day... too bad he's retiring :(
he sparked my interest in film analysis. best computer learning programs. and to quote him: "so on and so forth. whathaveyou, ssstthhh(he had a lot of saliva)". He was the most enthusiastic teacher
The best teacher I've ever had hands down, take every class he teaches!!!
amazing teacher. he really loves what he's teaching and he holds an incredible amount of information in his head. he makes you want to learn and he makes it fun in the process. He's definately my favorite teacher. Too bad that he's retireing next year. Many people will miss him.
I loved him because he was passionate and I agreed with him about almost anything, but it's easy to tell that if you disagree with him or write something contrary to his opinion in one of his essays, he will probably grade you down. He is very set in his ideas, and very radical in his opinions, and it is usually better just to write an essay based on what he thinks in order to get a great grade. Otherwise, he is the most fun and makes awesome videos and is a really cool guy.
A passionate teacher, very smart, sometimes testy.Holds an insane amount of info in his brain.Makes and shows the best videos I've ever seen, great computer learning programs, he makes you learn,everyone should take him, The Best teacher I've ever had.
I am a ARHS graduate, five years ago I took a Mr. Gerstein's Holocaust class and have since been an extremely motivated student. Thank you.
I sold out in '68, graduated in '79, became an English teacher in 92, but I consider myself lucky to have studied with Gerstein and Fonsh.
Gerstein rocks. One of those teachers that you won't forget. '97
A teacher who actually seems to care about what he's talking about. I'd highly reccomend all of his classes, he rocks!
Watch out he said he might stampede during a lightning storm. Had him for American West and Film. Great teacher. schedules his class for each day. Spits. EZ
great teacher, but don't sit in the front row (he tends to spit just a tid bit).
Had him for film class and study hall. Very enthusiastic about everything he taught. Didn't let anyone answer his questions and spit some.
spits like hell, no one in his class wants to sit front row because of it; you gotta play a game of dodge(spit)ball when in his class; also hes too enthusiastic
Had him for holocaust. very interesting but difficult class. He's almost too enthusiastic for me.
extremely passionate about history. Loved his tight jeans!!
fascinating teacher, especially when he gets excited and spits
Clearly enjoyed his subject, which helps you understand & enjoy
enthusiastic and entertaining teacher, good at his job.
Good teacher , but at times, displayed preferential treatment
A man before his time. Taught history with movies and videos. He was the Hsty Ch
One of the most entertaining professors (class of '94)
no one does a multiple choice test like Mr Gerstein!
I'll never forget the things I learned in his class.
Very passionate and knowledgable about what he teaches.
Biased in his opinions of history, but a good teacher.
