He is the best teacher! He is very knowledgeable and is able to teach very well due to that. When he teaches he makes class very fun and tries to explain things in logical ways so the students will be able to make connections and understand it well.

Mr. Hackney makes me swoon. Also, he truly knows history inside and out. The down-side of that is that he expects you to know it inside and out as well. Study hard for his tests.
