He will be the best math teacher any student will ever have. If you are complaining about him chances are you were just lazy in his class. He's amazing. He truly loves his job and is there to teach. He always gives his time for you to finish tests and get extra help. I wish I had him again! Great amazing teacher

I was just told about this site by another parent and I am appalled by the easiness that a teacher can be attacked. I know this teacher and he has taught 2 of my kids. He is a wonderful caring person who works hard at his job. My kids have greatly benefited from his dedication to the classroom. Oh by the way he is a great coach too. Shame on those kids and adults who wish to attack someone behind closed doors.

He is strick but very fair. I had hm now for 2 years. He is the only teacher that I actually do something in his class. Those that rate him badly are usually the people who do nothing in his class.

He's a horrible teacher. He is unprofessional and the amount of times I've heard "he needs to be fired" is overwhelming. obviously, I'm not the only one who hates him.

He's rude, unprofessional, vindicating, egomaniac. His adoption of technological software tools to teach math adds an extra layer of difficulty to an already challenging subject for most.
His dating of a former student in her 20's is also very concerning considering he is in his 50's.

He puts people in the front of the class and embarrasses them when they don't understand the question and all his work is online on a confusing site that no one understands.

He's a great teacher, and he goes out of his way to help students. He is strict I must say. But overall, he is one of the best math teachers I've had yet.
