Mr. K is an amazing teacher, probably the best I've ever had. He is very knowledgeable about everything he is teaching and extremely cares about the students. He takes the time to figure out what you need extra help on and figuring out the best way to teach you. He goes into deep analysis of the books which really helps you understand it and see multiple perspectives. He is also just a sweet and caring man that you can trust and talk too. If you get him you'll love his class and learn ALOT.

I never actually had him as a teacher, but I did stop by his class one time to submit a drawing for the school newspaper. Even during that brief drop-in, he was very nice and polite to me. Someone I knew had him, and she was right when she said he was cool. One time he did sub for my PE teacher, and he was very chill then as well. :)

Mr. K was by far one of the best teachers that I had at ST. He's very knowledgeable about everything that he teaches, as well as being passionate. I loved that he incorporated various psychological analysis techniques in all the books that we read, because it actually inspired me to get into psychology, which is now my major in college. Plus, he's super nice but not a pushover, which is awesome. If you get the chance to be in his class, cherish it.

I have Mr. K for English 2A, and he is pretty much the most amazing teacher you will ever have!!! He teaches well and connects to all the students personally. However, the class is not necessarily easy, and is actually a lot of work. Mr. K is the only teacher that can get away with this without his students hating him! Despite this, the class is totally work taking, and if you don't have him, you should transfer.

A very good teacher. Educated, resourceful, caring, and calm. He offers an incredible amount of knowledge and wisdom through his material (books, short stories, articles, socratic discussions, lectures), but leaves it up to the students to absorb it. I was in a 2A period of his, and I think it would be a shame not to pay attention in this class because of what there is to learn from it. Gets harder near the end, when the class gets more serious. Either way, an extremely diligent and understanding teacher.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I knew absolutely no grammar until I came to his class and even though I hated learning it, he made it seem as interesting as a teacher could. His class discussions gave us a sense of freedom and opened our minds to things we never would have been exposed to had we had a different teacher. You should feel honored to be in his class.
