He is a teacher I would like to eventually turn into a friend. He has stories to go with every topic of conversation as well as an acute sense of when to stop and listen. His knowledge is vast as well as his experience, and he brings this to every lesson he teaches and one-on-one conversation. Most importantly, he cares.

Mr Fogel is the best teacher you will ever have...he is one of the few that care about his students and actually put time to help them if its personal or school work related. He is always helpful and one day I think he will be running a school. the way he connects to all his kids is amazing. he puts in more effort than anyone needs to be. He will make a great principle he is already a great teacher, department head, QSA runner, Mental health chairmen and friend. He is simply amazing :) -Bailey

To those saying he'll make you feel bad or something. You just don't participate in class and are being lazy. That's all. He's one of the few teachers who cares about his students. If you need help with personal stuff, he will be more than happy to help you. He taught me many life lessons, he is wise and he is kind. His academic standards may be high and difficult, but on his teacher/friend side. He's one of the few people who I respect.

You will never be more patronized or have the pleasure of dealing with such a condescending and sadistic man than with Mr Fogel. If you want to be a 'favorite' just stroke his already high ego and share the same biased opinions. I'll admit, he has a great presence and is very passionate but he will effortlessly make you feel horrible about yourself. You'll always feel like you're walking on eggshells. If you are reading this Mr Fogel, I've never felt more like hell than when I was in your class.

Mr Fogel is a very enthusiastic teacher. He's often relatable and he helps motivate students in his class. He is one of those teacher you definitely don't want to dissappoint. However he is extremely biased. For example he'd have favorites in his class. or he takes certain students on a trip and leave the others. I dislike that. I've always been on Mr Fogels good side but I judge people based on how they treat everyone.

Best teacher, always encouraged me to come over to his place and help me with things "If you know what i mean". Gives great head and is always very understanding when you don't get it up right away. He also confessed to us about molesting his kids.

He is not an easy teacher however he is amazing at his job and if you work hard and follow his instructions getting an 80 is pretty easy! His class was very interesting and he explains everything and makes you love English. He improves your essay skills and prepares you for university.He made me love English, love him, he is an amazing teacher

Had him as an English teacher in '02. Will go down in my memory as hands down the best teacher I ever had. Genuinely cares about his students, and his enthusiasm for literature and philosophy is contagious. A remarkable man with a lot to offer as a person, and educator.
Consider yourself lucky if you have a teacher half as good as David Fogel is.
