At first, he updated schoolloop, but towards the end, he unpublished the grades. Nonetheless, I ended up with an A for the last semester even though I didn't turn in some stuffs and bsed all of my essays. However, a smarter, more organized friend of mines ended up with a B in class...Don't know what happened there LOL. His class is pretty interesting and he's a very funny, memorable teacher. Randomly calls you out (especially if he knows your name) during class so beware shy people haha.

Mr. Dirck is a great teacher. Maybe a bit unorganized at times but I think he really tries to get you to think/learn.

hes kind of disorganized, and sort of vague but when you ask for clarification he does a great job, his socratic seminars are graded on participation so talk alot, hes a really chill guy but it takes him a while to grade things and put on schoolloop, randomly checks journals so do them regularly,homework is little to none but you read alot of boring things his whole class is about truth

Dirck is an incredible person. You'll never have another teacher quite like this, even through college (I speak with experience). Take extra incentive to learn from him and you will not be disappointed at all.

Mr. Dirk teaches more than what is just out of the textbook; he teaches life. In my entire time at Silver Creek, he was one of the few teachers that made me an academic achiever, critical thinker and effective communicator.

I think Mr's D's problem is this: He's so brilliant most students just don't get him.
