Well rounded teacher. Knows what he's talking about, sets up his lessons and work well, answers questions clearly, is loud and doesn't actually make you want to fall asleep, he has a good sense of humor if you listen close and get to know him a little more, and also plays some sweet jams during group work :). Cool guy

(Note- I only took Crim, but I've been told Sociology is even better.) Don't take his class expecting to use it as a study hall, but also don't expect it to be an extremely rigorous academic course. You'll learn a lot and also have a lot of fun. He tells great stories and he's really funny, really nice person. While you will have a fair bit of what seems to be busywork, there's a reason for each and every assignment and you'll do fine if you pay attention. Take his class if you get the chance!

Amazing teacher that had the most perfect balance of helping students, independence, and class difficulty when I was under him. His contagious energy and willpower rubbed off on me.

Tracey, a nice guy and coach, but the most opinionated teacher i have had. We all know you hate conservatives, we never needed to hear it every day.

You learn from the man, opinions are welcome. But i guess the world would be better if we were all conservatives like Bush, McCarthy, Rumsfeld, Billy Graham...

He has a book of the same jokes every single year. If he lost that book, or someone happened to steal it, he would be lost forever.

Very arrogant and narrow minded. Mr. Tracey drills his own opinions of history into students heads...and thats not how history should be taught.
