kavs is wonderful. although he's a really hard grader (who's not afraid to give out D-'s), i got a lot out of his class. my writing skills have improved so much this year.

He's the best teacher I've ever had. I miss his class; p. 6 was the best. Mr. Kavanagh's been the most encouraging and inspiring of all my teachers. I wish I could have him again.
