THE BEST BIO TEACHER IN PA HISTORY! Although the subject is pretty difficult, Mr. Koolen teaches in a way that everyone is able to understand. His end-of-class jokes always made my day!

A really great teacher and a great guy. You can tell he really knows his stuff and wants you to be able to understand it too - always tries to help. He is SO FUNNY with his bad jokes and puns... also when he shortens words and says "___ is the cool or hip way of saying _______" lol Plus he gives us

FUNNIEST TEACHER EVER. I seriously loved Mr. Koolen. He was seriously made to be a teacher! :)
And I love his bonus points on "quizzes" and how he lets you skip one MC. :)

He's such a genuine nice guy. He tells the worst jokes you can't help but laugh at! He makes Bio fun and interesting (he draws pictures!!) but beware his tests/quizzes. He's a mean grader.

Mr. Koolen is amazing. Even his bad jokes are great because of his reaction. He probably could have been an actor, but I'm so glad he's my Bio teacher instead.
