Mr. Furman has since retired in 2013, and I was really happy to have been a part of the team that produced his final yearbook. Being in his first computer graphics class was pretty funny, he had a super unique sense of humor and hated anyone who disrespected him. If you apply to his yearbook class, he will show alot more respect and interest toward your work since its for a purpose. I made him smile one time which was both weird but priceless at the same time.

Joseph Furman is a fantastic teacher, provided that you are a good student. It is, for the most part, a self-taught class, so be ready to TEACH YOURSELF THROUGH READING INSTRUCTIONS (Anna Brown, this means you). In grade ten Mr. Furman will be fairly intimidating and likely tired of the classes shinanigans. Grade eleven he will loosen up to a select few of the better students, and if you take grade 12 or yearbook it is likely that you will end up loving Mr. Furman.

Furman is an interesting teacher. He is extremely strict when it comes to the dress code, but he doesn't seem to mind if you listen to music. He has a unique sense of humour that you must realize when he talks (which is rare). He is knowledgeable when it comes to computers. If you respect him, you will receive respect back.

Awesome and hilarious guy. Unique personality and humour. I agree, way too many students are extremely rude to this teacher. Best computer graphics class.

to me, i think he's a strange teacher as an art computer teacher. most of the students don't understand what he's saying during tests.
