Mr. Thomas is the greatest teacher I've ever had. His lectures are engaging and provoke critical thinking. Somehow he manages to also be totally hilarious while teaching history. I never look at the clock in his class and I get mad whenever the bell rings. Despite him calling me judas when I tried to record his telling of the miller's tale by Chaucer, I still think that I will never meet a more dedicated and caring professor.

Worst teacher I've ever had at Richard Montgomery. Rude and cynical, self-deprecating and insulting toward students during lectures. Unreasonable...always He has issues. Picks favorites and leasts. Avoid him at all costs. Mean mean man.

He is alright at explaining the material, and his tests and exams are fairly simple. Most student enjoy his sarcastic wit, but it often turns caustic. Worse, it will be directed at students, which is out of line. A teacher should never be downright rude or mean to a student. He is incredibly unprofessional. One year he had students celebrate in class his divorce being finalized- truly inappropriate.

Mr. Kuney is actually the best teacher I've ever had. He is friendly and outgoing, and extremely funny.
He knows his subject very well and is able to answer even the most bizarre and complex questions our class throws at him.
His method of teaching mostly consists of narrating powerpoint slides he made up himself, as well as giving many examples to clarify what he is saying.
He makes it clear that he is available to help anyone in need during lunch time. I'd go on but i just ran out of spac

Very interesting style of teaching, had him twice. He has a very cynical outlook, and that really helps with TOK/Psych. His background as a former lawyer is pretty evident as he can talk really well and reacts well to many situations.

He is moody, and brings it a lot into class. But when he isn't, he's not only one of the coolest guys around, but also the funniest. His cynicism honestly reflects his life experiences. In terms of teaching, he is blase about it, but still takes effort to guarantee he teaches at a commendable level.
