Unpopular opinion but I didn't like him. By far, one of the most biased teachers I ever had. I had to miss quite a bit of school due to health problems that were out of my control, but he still got angry with me and dropped my marks as a result. Talks very loud, drops textbooks as sound effects... if you have anxiety or are generally jumpy, wear earplugs. Overall, his classwas fun with discussions, terrible when it came to learning, and overall, would not want a course with him again.
He teaches well and makes his class fun at the same time. He's really funny which makes him a good entertainer as well. Enjoyed his English class.
He's a great teacher! :)
Well I don't know where to begin....so far his class has been amazing and I really hope it stays that way. I can't imagine an English class without Mr. Berenstein. I'm praying I get him for grade 12. If you ever manage to get into Mr. Berenstein's class, be ready for fun learning. In case you're wondering, no he did not pay me to write this, he is just the best teacher I've ever had.
probably my favourite teacher ever
Really fun and nice person, but picks favorites and doesn't really do much teaching. more of a fun period than a serious class
Amazing teacher!!! One of the best I've ever had.
Good guy smart guy #1 guy
Best and most entertaining teacher at Mac
I thank my lucky start to have had him for both english and lit. Simply an amazing teacher! great teaching style! i love his enthusiasm and his jokes! Hope my 2 younger brothers will get him in the future :D
I graduated high school in 2005, went onto get my BA in English Lit and then my JD at Yale Law School. Now that I'm done with school (ideally forever) I still believe without a doubt that Mr. Berenstein is the best teacher I've ever had. He is an amazing person and teacher, and he inspired me to stay engaged at a school where I rarely felt challenged enough. Take his class if at all possible. Discussions in his class still resonate with me, and the books he assigned remain among my favorites.
Absolutely LOVED both his english and his literature class. I am now in third year at schulich and every day i thank my lucky stars that i had him as an english teacher. Very engaging, cares about his students, very clear and very fair if a little difficult marker. HIGHLY Recommended to anybody who wants to do well in uni.
optimistic, and approachable. an exellent english teacher, but was addicted to the catch phrase game, and had his favourites. but none the less, good class to be in.
English is fun and easy with him. If you come to class and listen to him you cannot not understand the material.
haven't had him as a teacher yet, but i hope next year i will. he's an awesome person, always happy and excited and energetic! always laughing and telling us jokes and singing songs and trying to dance! you're awesome mr. b!
BEST english teacher...........actuallly makes english fun
One of the best teacher in the whole school!! He is one of the teachers who taught me something and not just the english but also on a psychological level. The best English teacher for someone who likes it and really fun also. Thanks Mr. Berenstein for everything you did for us!
Very enthusiastic teacher who gives helpful tips. Amazing personality.
Mr. B can be cool, funny, odd, quirky and slightly disturbing at the same time. Which is what makes him unique, and quite possibly one of the best teachers at Mackenzie. Watch out for his impression of Lady Macbeth (avert your gaze! It's horrifying yet so hypnotic...) Anyways. He's a bit of a hard marker - to say the least - and marks sometimes based on personal opinion rather then what works but I forgive him because he was actually able to engage/teach in class.
Great teacher just a tad hyper, but still great and always helpful, cheerful, funny, and overall great guy.
Very enthusiastic and supportive but very biased in his marking. Has favourites and seems to accommodate them more than others.
love him love him love. most supportive and helpful teacher ever.
Absolutely fantastic teacher. Smart, enthusastic and supportive of his students.
He is a great teacher and makes me look forward to each class. some may say its a great way to start a day, I say it's the best way to end one. If English is last i go home with a smile in my face. Enthusiasting, hilarious and absolutely fantastic teacher.
Best school play director I can think of. Works hard, and is very passonate about anything he does. Marks hard though.
Great teacher. You could tell he really cares about his class and is not all grizzled like so many teachers. One of the few I actually learned something from.
HIs class is the one I enjoy the most. It's also the class that I learn the most in. I can't think of anything negative to say about Mr. Berenstein. He's amazing considerate and open-minded and honestly, I just want to be Mr. Berenstein when I grow up.
aw I miss Mr. B. I love that he love Madonna so much,. But also he is a great teach because he loves what he does and makes it very fun!
He is just an amazing person and teacher... I'm in second year at university and i still remember him being to helful, aware, knowledgable, involved, enthusiast
Very accentric, enthusiastic, and flamboyant man. An awesome person, and will help you out with schoolwork, as well as your life problems.
Excellent teacher. Makes all of the curriculum interesting so far. Also, he is a very caring teacher, making sure that we all learn as well as we can. ^_^
He is cool! He actually makes Shakespears fun for students unlike most other teachers. He is hilarious as well! Makes you like Shakespeare.
I am in second year university and i still remember him being a great teacher. He is thought provoking, he is encouraging and a perfect example of teacher!!!
Mr.B is the greatest teacher ever. He actually made me want to go to class to see what he would do next. Had so much fun in his class! Hes the BEST!
Teh best way to start the day! So smart and very funny. Vry good teacher.
no words. he's a fantastic guy who makes learning fun, easy, and.. and i sound like an after school special...
He's a great teacher! He makes class interesting and fun, but don't let him pretend to be Olivia(Twelfth Night), it's kinda scary, but funny at the same time.
tries real hard to be funny and hide that he plays favourites
mr.berenstien is the best teacher in the world.. hes so nice and funny.. he actually makes english fun.. haha :)
miss you sir! you're the only teacher who ever made me enjoy english and i HATE english!! ur responsible for my major improvement in english...thx lots! =)

By far the best teacher I've ever had, take his class he's the BEST english teacher ever, he marks hard but it helps you later on, somehow makes Shakespeare FUN
I LOVE MR.BERENSTIEN!!!!!!! HE'S SUCH A GOOD TEACHER, AND GUESS WHAT HE ACTUALLY CAN TEACH! HE'S NOT SO STRICT AND INCREDIBLY NICE:D

Mr. B is the best English teachr I ever had. The best teacher actually. :)
An amazing person. He is really funny and very smart. He is a down to earth GUY
Berenstein is the best. We're all going to miss leaving him next year.
Best teacher I've ever had. Take his course. He'll change your life, and your opinion of English.
Nice but marks terribly hard. I can guarantee you wont an excellent mark in his course.
to the b to the e that's berenstein. DB's got a plan for every scene. He tells you what to do without being mean. & he makes sure everybody's keeping it clean. He knows how to bring in the serious green cause his tercel in the lot is looking nice and lean
Hilarious. But can be biased and dislike you sometimes.
Marks based on his expectations of you. Still, 3rd best teacher I've ever had.
funniest tecaher.. realli kool.. definately one f the best
Very passionate with English. Course dscriptions include Ripe, Juicy, Succulent
THE BEST CLASS IN THE WORLD!!! Hard but fair! Best teacher EVER!!!
