Mr. Katz was a jerk. On very first day he made quick judgement about which kids he was going to like and put them on certain tables. When he took attendance, he would spend/waste extra time kidding around with them. The kids he didn't like ended up on other tables and during attendance time, he would simply read out their names and had no conversation with them.
Funny how every non white student ended up on the table he didn't like.
OMG!! I used to have Mr. Katz in the 7th grade.. he was a very funny teahcer.Could be mean sometimes , though. I loved his singing!! hahaha..
