Mr. Kleintop taught me to understand that there's more than what they tell you on TV, and there's always an underlying reason for what's happening now.
I graduated 30 years ago, and he still influences my political "discussions" with people that don't get the political process.

Mr. Kleintop was one of my favorite teachers. He truly had an amazing knowledge of history and made it interesting. Parkland will truly miss him after this year.

I'm so happy i got him before he retired. This is my favorite class of the day. Mr Kleintop is one of the best teachers ive ever had! I learned so much from him - first year i understand history rather than just memorizing it
