I am upset to hear that he retired last year.In the beginning of the year i hated him i though it was his goal to make us miserable! as i got to know him better i realized he really cares in getting us to pass with an A!He was tough but it was worth it, after all he was marines.He gave us lunch passes anytime we dont understand something so by the end of lunch we would know the topic so well we could teach it others. Hes very organized my friends always took my notes to study with. He the best!

He was the best teacher ever. Truly cared. Yeah he was mean but alot kids needed that at times. He made sure you got the best SOL score you were capable of getting. At the end of the year he gave us a speech how is strictness was never personal but just for our own good and considering how prepared I was for Algebra I completely agree.

He was my teacher in 7th grade. He is strict but a great teacher. If you can play the game of math, you will learn so much in that classroom. Just remember, do your homework or die in lunch detention!

I didn't have him but some of my friends did and every kid in his class would come outta there ghostly white, red from embarassment, or drowning in teaars. NO JOKE. I've heard he's a good teacher though.

If you can survive golstien, you can survive anything. He makes it so that math becomes your life. When you have him you hate him and he will probably make you cry, but he is the best math teacher you

scary but funny at the same time, if you pay attention he'll be ok with you. thats why math is my least favorite class. if you don't understand something he'll yell and teach you in front of the class until you get it.

Sometimes he's ok, and sometimes he isn't. He gets mad when you don't understand something. Also, if you don't finish a test in time, he takes it from you! Whatever you didn't finish is marked WRONG! Overall though, he is a good teacher and he teaches well. Just watch out for his bad days.....

Pretty OK teacher except that his face will turn red and start yelling at you if you do not understand something.. he will teach you the WHOLE lesson infront of the whole class if you dont understand.

The students who dislike Mr Goldstein don't give him enough credit. Sure, he has his quirks but as a teacher he is AMAZING. He really makes math understandable.
