A lot of reading, writing, lecture, but you learn everything you need for the tests. No hassle, quiet, help if you ask, no homework, good video, no surprises. One of the best @ DV!

Easy Class. Although he would spit when he would talk, i also heard that he was a honest good teacher. He would lecture and ramble on but he would always leave you time in class to work. Easy A

Coach Goggin is a GREAT teacher. Told us what to do, when and how to do it, the requirements for grade and then let us get the work done. After three years at DV he is the best I have had so far.

I graduate this year and Coach Goggin was by far the best I had. Some didn't like him because he demands that you work in class but isn't that what life is all about. Agree he was the smartest teacher

Great teacher-many of them at my school could learn a great deal from him about teaching. Honest and fair. Definitely brings out the best in you but makes you earn it. Old school but very effective!

Best at DV by far. Honest, straight forward, "get to it" teacher. Bottom line is the class is easy and you really learn the material. Read it, write it, listen and test. The way all classes should be.

Great teacher. Probably smartest one at DV too. He does math, English, and science problems in class like he teaches the stuff. Should probably be teaching at the univerisity though. Funny too!

Mr. Goggin is courteous, professional, responsive, and helpful. He is though "old school" in that your son/daughter gets every opportunity to perform and then receives a grade worthy of their effort.

Goggin is fair and let's you do the work with no hassles. He'll help if you ask and you'll learn the material. Careful though cause he hammers clowns and gives no free grades. GOOD teacher.
