I had Mr. Kotlewski a few years ago and to this day I believe he is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is knowledgeable and interesting which made for a great class. He's the reason I learned to love history. He definitely prepared me for high school as well.

My friend was having serious problems and we knew he was the one we could go to. He helped her get the help she needed and I am so glad we went to him. There are not many adults that would do what he did for her.

Good teacher and an average guy. Expects a lot out of you and pushes you to your greatest. Sometimes he doesn't recognize people who work hard in the class. Overall you can learn a lot about life in his class even if some of it isn't repeated by him.

Mr. Kotlewski seems to love teaching. He offers extra help before and after school. He asks us about our real lives. I didn't know one of my classmates ice skates and he asked her about her skating. He shows how what we do is part of our lives.

He is the greatest teacher i have ever had. He gave us a lot of projects with lots of work, and gave us a lot of homework too; but it was all worth it. Part of what he did with leadership to lead our classes had to do with being an Eagle Scout on how he got most of his leadership skills.
