I found this page because I was hoping to find Zartman's email to reach out to him and let him know how much he's been an influence on me. I graduated from Torrance High in 2007 and to this day, after undergrad at UCLA and law school at Pepperdine, still consider him the best teacher/professor I've ever had. If you are lucky enough to have him, do not take him for granted. He's wise beyond his years and one of the most insightful and intelligent people I've ever met. -Monica de Leon c/o 07

Zartman was one of the clearest speaking teachers I have ever had. I had him for U.S. History. He is such a great man who really gets his lessons across. His tests can be slightly confusing but if you pay attention in class and just take notes, he is the easiest A you will ever get.

I had Mr. Zartman for psychology in 2008. I now have a college degree & he is still to this day the best teacher I have ever had in my entire life. I still use what I learned in his class 4 years later. He is kind, funny, & truly cares about his students. You do have to put in effort to succeed in the class, so don't be lazy about studying if you have him... But it was all worth it to me. I truly enjoyed the time I spent in his class & I am so thankful for what he taught me.

Mr. Zartman is the best teacher at THS. I was fortunate enough to have him for AP US History and AP Psychology. His lectures are hilariously entertaining. If you do all the reading and pay attention in class, you are guaranteed to pass the AP Exams with flying colors.

He is one of the best high school teachers, ever. If you're a lazy person, don't even think about taking his class. Buy an AP study guide book and read it from the first day! I passed all my history a

I had him for 2 periods in a day.. and didn't mind at all! He cares about his students and wants them all to excel. He has a really great sense of humor and keeps his lectures (semi)interesting!

There's a reason why this man is still teaching. His lectures are a bit boring, but if you read and pass his tests, you're guaranteed a pass on any of his AP tests. He tells more funny stories in Psych AP ;)

Mr. Zartman is a legend, his class is extremely hard but it has to be the greatest class on campus. Also un like the other retiring teachers Mr. Zartman vows to never retire from teaching.

His classes are demanding but somehow, they remain fun with his stories and humor. Witty and genuine, he expects the most out of his students. Top 3 teacher at Torrance High. Get x-credit by speaking!

He's a great teacher. teaches mostly lecture style, with difficult tests, but awards extra credit points daily. You will come away learning so much from him. Psych AP does research; APUSH reads book

One of the best teachers I ever had. And that was in '74/75.. As a football coach one of the best that I had - except when we had to do flights till dark.
