I mean i like him but he puts the entire class to sleep. I've seen half my class sleep through tests before. I don't think he has prepared me well for the regents but we will see. He is very knowledgeable but teaches his class as a lecture and gets mad when others start asking questions and stuff. you basically have to sit there with a pen and paper and write word for word if u want to do good. Honestly, if you do that you will be fine and eventually get over it all and enjoy the class.

Not only among the best teachers I've had, one of the greatest people I've ever met period. He's a brilliant teacher and will go ou to his way to help people who try and are respectful. He makes the class very interesting too. If you study the tests are very fair and you will do well.

Fair, brilliant, interesting, helpful, and funny (especially his mannerisms). Sometimes I question what he teaches and the tests can be difficult, but definietly 1 of the top 5 teachers in the school.

His knowledge of history is only surpassed by his knowledge of baseball, specifically the Brooklyn Dogers.

A man who puts in an uncountable amount of hours after school with Mock Trial for the few months it takes place, a man who holds class during lunch so his kids can do well on AP exams. What more can I say - he's great

He is a true teacher in every sense of the word, who relates to his students but never ceases to challenge them intellectually. Not afraid to throw in a baseball allusion (Dodgers 1955), he gets respects because he gives it first. A truly great man.
