Mr. Furgeson was the best teacher I've ever had--including college. His course is about understanding history and using analytical thinking--not just learning dates and facts. His class made transitioning into college-level classes easy. Great guy and inspired his students.

I made an A and still learned nothing from his class. Loves to hear himself talk. Typical AP teacher -- smart and informed, but he just can't teach.
