he was an awesome AP psychology teacher. he knew his material and his discussions really made you think in class. his tests were difficult but few were actually in class. unfortunately, he is retired now.
Steve was my psych, biology, philosophy teacher, 1980-1982. The most influential teacher of my youth, both by inspiring to seek different angles on truth & experience, and through his challenging, iconic, interrogative style.
He was a funny guy, but he h8ed freshmen...he didnt teach me much because he knew he was about to retire...and so i got dr. runcie and almost failed the final/my class was so behind Ravinder Kaler
Had him for AP psych and personality readings, adored the guy, adored the courses. Tests were take home, thus open book, still tough. Now majoring in psychology in college because of him.
i have farbstein for ap psych and readings in the theory of personality, and because of him i'm thinking about majoring in psychology. i think about the world differently now!
Probably my 1st or 2nd favorite teacher ever! Witty, spends time on stories, and it's like the knowledge magically appears in your head.
I had him for biology. Great teacher, awesome sense of humor. He is a bit insulting, but it's really more amusing than actually insulting. Hard tests, but he's a very good grader.
His tests are VERY hard, bu the answers are all in the textbook. He's really easygoing, unless you give a really dumb answer and he insults you for the enjoyment of the class.
Very cool, but don't expect to be remembered if you're one of the quiet ones.
Makes Biology seem easy. Great sense of humor. Much better then Biering
I still remember him as one of my favorite teachers. I hated biology 1st semester, but really liked 2nd semester when I had him - he explains the subject incredibly well!!
farbstien is THE man. one of the best teachers i have ever had
Farbstein's a great teacher. Biology's hard, but he manages to teach it well, and you've got to love his sense of humor.
Farbstein's FANTASTIC for freshman bio! I just finished studying for my final and everything came back to me in a split second when I reviewed. That's how good he is.
He is an extremely cool teacher, and if you pay attention he absorbs you into the subject. I have psychology with him and he explains everything so clearly I'm just awed.
love mr. farbstein! had theories of prersonality with him. knows a lot and will share his knowledge. somewhat seinfeldish outlook on life.
he is really cool. he wowed me always with his teachings and thoughts. one of the greatest teachers at stuy. hope he never retires! that man has good stories.
Mr. Farbstein has gotta be the most awesome biology teacher ever. He's very nice and I love his sarcastic remarks. He gave me a pretty fair grade. :)
One of the few teacher that shapes you, an impression that lasts a lifetime.
If you are a diligent student, then he gives you respect. People who plan to goof off in lab, be prepared to have some sarcastic jokes made on your behalf. :)
I like Farbstein a lot. He was a sarcastic, biting old man, but excellent fun.
Had him about ten years ago. Great sense of humor, cool teacher.
One of the best teachers I've ever had, college included.
I had him as a freshman in 1988. One of the BEST teachers I've ever had, college included.
