My name is Tyler crouch I had Mr Courtney 8th grade year, I wasn't the greatest student, I was trouble and Mr Courtney was one of the most down to earth people I've known along with his way in a class room me and Courtney had the same taste in music, we had similar ideas about society and while I was a trouble maker in other classes I behaved in his class one of the only teachers I've ever really dearly missed, I looked up to him he told me stories about how when he was a young little punk.

I am a grown up now, but had Bob Courtney in grades 7-8 at Batchelor Middle School. In all my years of attending school, including college, Mr Courtney was hands down the best teacher I ever had. He was not always easy, in fact, his classes were pretty hard, but the thought he inspired and the topics he covered... He was engaging and though provoking and I don't think I would be the person I am today without privilege of having Bob Courtney as my teacher (twice!).

His teaching style is completely different from any other I've ever come across, and it really does offer a breath of fresh air. He provides you with information and lets you make your own conclusions based on it. He doesn't teach you information, he teaches you how to think. Even though I found his class pretty difficult (because I am used to being taught from a textbook), that's okay, because I definitely learned a lot this year. Thanks for a wonderful year, Mr. Courtney!

He doesn't often teach lessons, but has us do the research ourselves. If he wasn't the teacher for this class, I would probably hate the class

One of my favorite teachers ever! He doesn't try to force opinions on us! This is an especially interesting class for me because I hope to go into law enforcement eventually, and Mr. Courtney has helped teach me laws and why we have them.

This dude is awesome. He knows how to express his opinion to the class without forcing them to side with said opinion. I share almost no political views with Mr.Courtney but I get along with him as good or even better than I would one of my fellow gun slinging conservatives. That might not seem much but it is certainly rare nowadays and I commend him for it. He has shown taught me more about life in general than any other teacher and is just plain cool. Now I just need you to quote Bob Dylan.

Easily the best teacher I have ever had. He's hilarious and actually cares about teaching kids things they need to know, not just the curriculum. Once he made fun of the other teachers with me like God bless Mr Courtney.
