What hasn't already been said? Mr. K is one of those teachers you miss in high school. He's ridiculously nice, but doesn't treat you like six year olds. He gives great advice, and honestly I learned more about leadership and attitude from him then science. He talks really lous and is always full of energy, something that I always appreciate. He helped me come out of my shell and had a real impact on making me the person I am today. A teacher you'll never forget. Still on the road less traveled!

seriously the best teacher I have ever had. He teaches you a lot about life and gets into your personal business. He makes his tests sometimes and they're really funny. He has his own projects and doesn't follow a curriculum which can be frustrating for finals. I'm going to miss Mr. Kotulski so much, he helped me get out of my shell. he also treats you like his grandchildren and gives you sweets a lot. Always feel free to ask him questions and he will help you. couldn't ask for a better teacher.

Amazing teacher who makes the class very fun. He is a very nice and funny guy and you will never find him in a bad mood. He is smart and knows a lot about life and science, but gives us many experimental projects that we have to do so we don't actually understand the concepts. He doesn't really get in front of the board to teach us so that makes us struggle on the tests which are worth a lot of points. Overall, he is a good teacher but he could teach us more so we aren't always confused.

Mr. K was the BEST teacher I have ever had. He was sooooo nice. You would never find him in a bad mood. He talks in a funny way and calls you by your last name, which keeps the class entertaining. I had him 2 years ago, and I wish to see him again sometime soon

He gives you worksheets, then he gives you a high point quiz. He lets you retake it, but still. Then he teaches the topic for a day, then there's a test on it.

He is SO nice and so helpful. Others say he doesn't teach very much, but he does! He teaches a lot about science, and about life which is very helpful. I learned so much, and he is so giving! I feel like he uses his small teacher salary towards us, giving the whole team gifts of support. He is my favorite teacher this year, and the best science teacher I have every met.

What can't i tell you about him. He rocks. No he does have rocks in his class room. Nice and kind and so much more. He does have his favorite students. If you get to know him and he gets to know you, the year will be so much better. He would do anything to help a student. He gives labs, not so bad. Well all i can say is he is a cool. He is the best teacher i have ever had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
