I was Mr. Buck's student in 1985-86. He absolutely had the most influence on my life outside my immediate family. I went on to become a professor of ancient history, with a doctorate in the subject, and write both academic papers as well as fiction, all thanks to James Buck. And in case he reads this, I was the student who would put my feet up on your desk and caught that chalky eraser (once). Thank you, sir!
All my views are opposite his, but he was never offensive and he was really funny and he really made you try, but then you learned a lot:)
He's a gator fan which is cool but tries to throw his republican ideals at you which is not! However, he's still an interesting and effective teacher. Take him!
Mr Buck is enthusiastic and fun. I learned a lot from his class and him.
He is a very easy teacher, you only have to do work for the first half the class and if you get an A he carries it over for the 2nd...cool guy
Mr. Buck is the best history teacher I have ever had. His teaching methods are clear and effective, and his overall attitude towards his students is great.
His class is challenging but you learn a lot, and he's an awesome teacher!
