No offense, but it seems like Haskvitz himself wrote this article. Having studied under him, it wouldn't surprise me if he wrote this to satisfy is overblown ego. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:46, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

ego pours out of this 02:50, 3 October 2007 (UTC) teaching for students, not the career

Fan material[edit]

I'm sure this teacher is outstanding. But WP:WWIN ... is not a fan site. If this is a biography, we need biographical information, not a list of awards. Some of his accomplishments seem notable here, but there's just so much that's not. If you are a fan of his, or are interested in contributing to this article, please read WP:NOR and WP:BIO. Thanks!

to the above...BLAH! He is a great teacher, but there is not much info on him besides the awards and achievements that are listed. I also challenge you to write more about him from a bio stand point as Otheus has stated, but keeping the awards and achievements while fleshing him out as a person would be great. Also I wouldnt say the containing page was a Fan Material page when numerous other bios have the exact same setup.

---the one-- —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Ehh...I am a student of his and he is a great teacher! He prepared us for high school and he taught our class through the entire book twice as fast as the other teachers! Not only that, but we also learned more from his lessons than the other students! You just have to be careful not to get him mad, or else you'll just ruin the entire class period. He is just plain awesome! -Ippy

Little of the above is exactly relevant for an encyclopedia. The awards are, however, can they be documented.?DGG (talk) 04:17, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Wow, he has won a lot of awards since I've been a student of his. Well when I was a student, most people I had knew disliked him. My memory of his class is not as fond as many of yours here. When I had him for my social studies teacher, our day mostly comprised of him assigning book work while he surfs the web most of the class. He did very little lecturing. From what I've heard, he went on strike for several years after I had him too. I'm surprised he is became so well acclaimed after I left. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Astroidea (talkcontribs) 09:09, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

July 2014 Cleanup[edit]

Now that the dust has settled from the AfD, the time has come for cleanup. Most of this article is unsourced WP:OR and opinion, neither of which we can retain in an article. Worse, it appears there is self-acknowledged copyvio text ("Copied below is from the website:"). I have removed all text that is not supported by WP:RS, including some of the claimed awards that are not well-known. In addition, I removed text that appeared to be sourced, but was in fact not, e.g. the distinguished Pomona alum claim, which pointed to a generic university fund-raising page. I left a number of claims that have "citation needed" tags and will attempt to find such, but these will have to go too if nothing can be found. I also deleted all the broken links. As this article moves forward, please keep in mind that all claims must be supported by some form of reliable source, especially because the subject is still living.
