He's really rude and picks on you for the whole year if you don't answer a question correctly in the beginning of the year. He always asks us questions before even teaching the lesson and acts like we should be knowing it already. He's really subjective with his grading and is always in a pissy mood. If you get his class, transfer out..

One of the fairest teachers in the school, he doesn't do the whole 'favorites' thing. If you have a problem with him, you're most likely slacking. oh yeah, and hes VERY intimidating, but hes cool.

To really love this teacher you have to have him for more than one year. Tests might be difficult but when you get "kotzkied" you are a kotzky for life.

Mr. Kotzky is awesome. If you are interested in politics or history in general his class is going to be one of your favorites. His tests are easy even without studying and gives homework only like 3 times a week.

He's a great teacher. Has good humor and cracks jokes. Mock trial class is great but he can be intimidating when he's acting as a lawyer, showing how great and well versed he may have been before teaching.

Mr.Kotzky is a very good teacher. He gets straight to the point and doesn't get off topic easily. His board notes aren't excessive, and his tests are repetitive. His sarcasm or way of humor is quite silly, and he's very down to Earth. Don't do other class's work in his class, and don't put your head down. If you show that you're paying attention, it's an easy class. Test grades are a biggie, but multiple choices are a breeze if you study your notes.
