Mr. Kissel sucks. He picks favorites too often, and makes very cheesy jokes. He lectures about how life is a baseball game and he would not want to be our coach, and a spends 52 ruining our ability to learn by talking tool chest that doesn't even exist. His classroom is a 3 word synonym for "Where the intellect goes to die." : ( If you have him, which you should hope not, I suggest you have a good math tutor on hold, for you will need it to get a low passing grade in his class. I hate him.

HE IS THE WORST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD! he thinks that just because he has been teaching for so long that he is a good teacher, but that's not true. He not only plus favorites, but he makes jokes at kids' expense.TERRIBLE!

Oh Mr Kissel..he goes on random rants about a tool chest that doesn't even exist, and how life is a baseball game and he wouldn't want to be our coach, and for the most part, he rants about NOTHING!!! Which is fine if you know how to do the work, but when he does, explain things, I walk out of the classroom thinking to myself, "Gee, what did I just learn!?" - he makes everything confusing. He picks favorites, and makes really cheesy jokes. He also picks on people constantly. He was just ok.

I recently sent an email regarding a homework assignment I didn't understand. It was 8 PM, so I didn't exactly expect him to get back to me right away. The next day he was taking attendance and after calling my name, mentioned in front of THE WHOLE CLASS that he had seen my email. He said, and I quote, "I received your email and it didn't come through until about 8:15. Believe it or not, I HAVE A LIFE, so I didn't reply. I know, I know...(continued)

The easiness factor shouldn't even be relevant here. Mr. Kissel taught me SO much in one year, despite sitting next to my best friend and talking constantly. He is an exemplary teacher, and those who never have him should go weep in a corner :)

Take what I have to say with a grain of salt, since it has been 16 years since I was a student of Mr. Kissel's, but he was the single best teacher I had at LCHS. I learned a great deal in class, and he was very helpful outside of it as well.
