Nov 16, 2010 He is always eager to help and is only gruff with bullies or with lazy students. John is the best teacher at Science and Math. Only the dumb kids don't like him. Flag Rating

Aug 19, 2010 Having just received a Masters of Physics, Professor Kolena is without a doubt the teacher that changed my academic career. He's tough, but you will benefit later in both college and life. Flag Rating

Jul 19, 2009 The guy has a poor character, both inside and outside the classroom. I received an A in his classroom, but after doing SciOly and Work Service with him, I am disgusted at how self-centered he can be. Flag Rating

Aug 18, 2005 Dr. Kolena is one of those teachers that has left an everlasting impact. He knows lots, and expects the most of his students. I admire him, and hope to be as successful as he is. Flag Rating

Dec 11, 2003 The most evil and bitter person EVER. He can't teach worth anything, he is just bitter and evil to his students. Don't fear him; hate him. Flag Rating
