This man seems to know everything! His lectures are very long, but he is very passionate about what he does. His tests are pretty difficult but he curves and every one is usually in the same boat. His stories are the best!

Gotta love Koger. A really hard class with plenty of studying, but he's a genius that knows his stuff. By the time the AP exam comes around, piece of cake.

A lot of people don't like K-slice for no apparent reason, but I have to say he is one of my favorite teachers at mission. Always willing to help and also cool enough to joke around with students. Always gives me a sly grin when he sees me talking to a girl in his class. Feelings circle in psych is awesome

I was never very fond of Koger, but he was a great teacher and it is very easy to understand history through his perspective

While it may not seem so, he really is a nice guy. Pretty clear if you don't understand something and doesn't really care if you're a few minutes late and will pretty much only give you a little glare. But we screwed around kind of a lot in Psychology this year and as a result didn't do that well... but he is definitely an experience

I had Mr. Koger in the 90's, I still think of him when i am writing - "Consequently, moreover, therefore"...he left a valuable mark on me! I hope he knows how much he has influenced all his students!

One of the best teachers I've ever had. College was a breeze because of Mr. Koger's training. He makes you work hard, and isn't easy, but you will thank him later!

He really impressed me at FIRST, but now I'm not so thrilled about his teaching style. I don't find him very helpful or very good as a teacher. He is very disorganized.

challenging class, i would stay away if you barely got into this class and have trouble writing essays. Don't want to look like a fool when he makes u read your essays in front of class. Terrifying

I have him for both Humanities and Psychology SL. He knows a lot and is able to teach it. However, he is extremely difficult. Learn to Counter-Counter Argue!

Koger has hard classes, but his lectures are interesting. Participate alot. Really stresses college-level writing, and expects the most from his students. Koger taught me how to write.
