Mr. Durkee is a great teacher. If you look passed the boring parts, you can realize that he knows what's going on and he is solid in his understanding of social studies. He is very nice and even though his class may be a little slow at times, you learn a lot. Great teacher in all,

Mr. Durkee is a great guy. He is just a ordinary person who doesn't have anything crazy put to his name. He is simply nice and kind. He is trying to adapt to young generations, but my class is defiantly getting bored. Sadly, many sleep, read, talk, text, or whatever during social studies. He loves talking a lot, and sometimes it's really boring, even for me, and I love school, but I find it very sweet that he just wants to teach and be a good teacher. And he just wants to make it interesting.

Okay, Mr. Durkee was one of the MOST boring teachers I've ever had. (no offense Mr. Durkee). But, he's also one of the nicest and funniest teachers. (I did fall asleep in his class twice due to my weird behavior of falling asleep in cold rooms and boring teachers), but he has everything planned out. His tests were easy, he planned the final out and gave us a lot of prep. Despite me wishing I had Mr. Shapiro, I loved his class as well, though I would never admit it. 1 1/2 hrs is too much though.

Mr. Durkee was a great teacher. It is true, he played whale music during exams sometimes, but he also did a great job of preparing us for the final exam. He has every lesson meticulously planned, and he never misses a beat. I have never seen him get flustered during a lesson. He makes review packets, has us take a practice test for the final, and all throughout the year, I felt so privileged to be his student. He is a great educator. I really liked him! He is relaxed, but still gets things done.

Very boring but knows what he's teaching, some of the points that he makes r actually kind of interesting. He's also one of the nicest teachers you'll have at TCMS. Mr. D deserves the best.
