I had Mr. Kuska in 7th grade at bartlett middle school in Porterville Ca. I am 35 years old and still appreciate his manner, enthusiasm, knowledge and dedication to stand up for what he believes in. After all these years I respect him and think about his determinination to teach.
I think I had Mr Kuska in 8th grade, and I must say, he was one of my favorite teachers. He never once showed favoritism or discrimination. if he saw a learning spark in you, thats all that mattered. I respect him a lot, and being a sophomore in college now, I STILL to this day remember every little thing he made us repeat a million times. Thank you Mr. Kuska for being a very rememberable teacher.
One of the worst teachers I've ever had. We spent the first three months of school learning about how to behave in his class, taking meaningless tests and quizzes about respect. When we finally got to science, we learned a 2nd grade level of 8th grade science, full of spelling mistakes and made up ideas from pages he created himself. When the CST's came, we had only covered a third of the material on the test. Worst. Teacher. Ever.
