I think it's weird that this site's star rating system gives "hard" teachers just one star. Mr. York is challenging, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing. What I don't love about Mr. York is that he seems pretty threatened by people who have vocal training outside of FHN. He gets super defensive about it and tends to favor kids who only have gone through his and the FH programs. Don't tell him if you take private voice lessons.
Although Mr. York doesn't always explain concepts perfectly clear, he is a great teacher and super nice. One thing I don't like is how he is such a Spartan fan. Yech.
You either love him or don't, there is no in between. It depends on the person you are, I absolutely love him though he can be really sassy and gets frustrated a lot. It's always good to have a fun teacher like him around, he jokes around a lot! !
Good teacher, and even better person. Always willing to lend a hand, both in and outside of the classroom. After taking six classes with him in four years of high school, he was easily one of my favorite teachers.
Greatest teacher ever. He is always there if you need help.
Mr. York was my favorite teacher throughout all of high school. He truly cares about 'his choir kids'. Although he does play favorites a bit yes, he, in my opinion, does it for the better of the choir
I love Mr. York. He cares about his students and loves choir! I wish other teachers were like him!!
One of my favorite teachers by far. Only complaint is that he definately plays favorites when it comes to Northern Singers and Soloists. Great Guy though, really he is.
Best teacher ever. I had him 1986-1989 and he was fantastic.
Awesome teach! He cares a lot about his students...so far I have learned SO much from him! Thanks Mr. York!
Maturity is doing what needs to be done...when it needs to be done....<--I learned that from him....He respects us and wants the same respect...I love him!
gets the best outta us& makes us work which is what we all need to be the BEST.i LOVE it! Thanks for everything Mr. York!ur a main reason i stayed at Northern.
I love you, Mr. York! Don't let jealous people bring you down-they're not worth the time! Choir is the best part of my day-thanks so much for all you do!
For those of you who dislike him...what would you do in his position. Yea thats what i thought!
Very great teacher, who has a deep passion for his teaching and his students. Requires tolerance and patience to be in his class, but is well worth it
Coolest teacher in Northern! Thanks for caring and for being there. Love ya!
Mr. York, you are the best teacher ever! I only wish you taught other subjects. You are fun, funny, and very clear when you teach. Keep up the great work.
Mr. York shows us that we need to grow up, don't rip on him, he has a hard job!!
Mr.York is the best teacher and if you dont like him it'd be best if you shut up
Mr. York's one of us! He doesn't demand respect from the students, he earns it!
Just because you can't make NS doesn't mean you have to trash peopleinthe group.
best teahcer ever. he's the reason i became a teacher.
mr.york is sweet so everyone shut who doesn;t like that
makes us work hard and he is the coolest...i dont know whats wrong with u ppl
northern singers are great but there is better. ur ego rubs off on your students
i am the best choir director ever and my choirs are the best too ok m.y....
Dude, york. just because we're frosh doesn't mean we don't care. Lay off!
why does he mock the sops when they are the smartest in the room!that
so fun: really makes us work up to be the best we can be
there are very few people that i respect less than craig york
how can you not like a teacher who plays movies for you all the time?
just bc u guys arent good enough doesnt mean you can diss mr. york
great teacher, may seem hard but only bc he challenges you to work hard
lay off guys yorks the most awsome guy EVER-he rocks
He's a nice guy..always really energetic. You can tell he loves singing
He almost taints music, its hard to not let him destroy your passion
classic example of potential gone way wrong, it's sad how he handles students
he's funny its just some of you need to learn to take a joke.
york is awesome! some of you people need to get off your high horse's!
though he may play favorites, he's an awesome director and a good guy overall
Your not cool grow up, your so full of your self that it makes me sick.
