Great teacher; enjoy talking with him outside of class. His tests are incredibly long and quite difficult but if you take notes and stay on top of things you will be able to get A's. He's funny and clearly enjoys teaching and getting the class involved in a discussion. He does lecture quite a bit so make sure you write everything down!
Mr Koch is probably one of the best teachers at CHS. I had an emergency with my AP exam last year and he helped me through it and that just proved his dedication to me as a student and a person. He was going through some rough family stuff last year but still came to school happy to teach and invest in the students. He taught me a lot about history in an effective lecture fashion and I would recommend him!
Great teacher, a lot of fun. Super sarcastic with a witty sense of humor. Usually teaches in a way in which students can connect. 10/10 recommend. If you're taking World Civ 1, you are blessed. (well not blessed the class is hell but at least he makes it pretty fun). You really don't use the textbook except like once at the beginning of every unit. As long as you study for the tests, you should do pretty well. The questions are usually right from the homework.
the most amazing history teacher.... i think our schools history department rocks no matter what but cook is the best teacher i've ever met... he makes everything soo simple and easy to understand! love him!
Favorite teacher of all time. Great teacher, a comedian, and always willing to help you understand something. So sad he doesn't teach apush anymore. And if you have him now, mention something about Di
He's so funny and has some pretty good stories. His teaching is ok, but overall he's a cool guy.
He's such a funny teacher and as long as you do the homework he doesn't care what you do
really great teacher. he is really funny and makes learning fun. also a really easy grader.
Easy if you do the work. Always willing to help (as long as it wasn't a stupid question). Just pay attention and enjoy.
really funny, great guy, but his sarcasim gets in the way. of you dont get something, dont bother asking, cause you wont get a straight up answer. if you
He was really funny, and has puns which helped on test..his teaching skills needs a bit of improvement, but other then that he is a great teacher!
Everybody in my class liked him, and he's a nice guy, but abysmal as far as teaching goes. He seemed resigned to the fact that we would all fail and didn't know half the classes' names all year.
He's really really funny but sometimes his sarcasm gets in the way. Like if you want to ask him something, he'll be sarcastic when answering and then you have no idea what the answer is.
Great PreAp Freshman History teacher, i hope i get him for AP USH
mr koch is really good. he's funny and doesn't let the class get too horribly boring. but his tests are pretty hard and its not an easy class
really great teacher!...i had him for World History in 9th grade and i really wish he was my AP teacher right now instead of Mr.Monteverde.
i had him last year and he is a great teacher. he always tries to make you laugh and have a good time while learning. his test were not to hard but we not easy. i wish i could have him next year
I think Mr. Koch is the only teacher i have that is like normal. He dosn't let the class get too boring and at the same time its not like a circus in there. His tests are pretty hard, at least for me
i love mr.koch! i have him now, and he's like amazingly hilarious. he's really helpful and a really chill teacher :]
I had him for world history honors, he's so-so. Not too hard, but not too easy. He's really funny and relaxed so the class isn't too uptight. However, he doesn't prepare you (atleast for me) for AP.
mr koch is the best teacher eveeeerr. the class kinda was boring at times but hes hilarious and a straight up G =]
i had this guy the very first year he started teaching at chantilly (02 - 03) for world 1...he was pretty funny, but the thing that really annoyed me was having to do those lame presentations for the class. no one did a good job cause we didn't care, and i never got any useful information out of them. still got a decent grade out of the class so whatever. p.s. - if you want to hear a funny story, ask him about the time where he almost ''died''...he'll know what you're talking about.
his class is awesome, and he's an awesome teacher, but you won't be prepared for AP world at all. I barely did any work, but always got A's. He's really nice guy too, and will help solve any problems you have, just in general. He's also more aware than most teachers about how much pressure we're all under.
mr koch is a great teacher. he is very helpful if you dont understand the material.
I love him!!Great teacher!!Make you understand history!!! Hes sooo funny!one time i wrote a little note to him on my test...and it was a ghetto note and he wrote back .saying word yo!!! Sooo funny
best chuck that i know. yes he beats chuck taylor and even charley brown. he knows what he is talking about espeacially when it comes to MUSIC! haha. kinda like my class... TOTAL ECLIPSE senor koch!
definately my favorite teacher! but, homework is a must, if you don't do it your grade is pretty much screwed. he grades essays really tough, but it really helps you improve
hes really nice, funny and cool but his class was way too easy... he didnt prepare me enough for AP world. he picks favorites too.. usually the pretty girls
SOOOOOO AWESOME MAN!!! might be a little hard at times but wow what an amzing guy! Hes sooooooo funny.
He makes History easy to understand. he is AWESOME and has a great sense of humor! he makes class extremely enjoyable. He does grade a little tough sometimes though.
I had him last year, and he made the subject just fly past, quite strange for History. I learned the course without even realizing it. Awesome teacher!
He really knows how to make you learn alot without doing alot of work. All he asks in return is that you do his homework. I recomend that you do because homework will really bring ur grade down if its not done
Haha had him freshman year and he sang for us! but he always stars at the back...not sure why
such a cool guy. answer questions and study for your tests/quizzes and you're set. let's you do just about anything as long as you're willing to work later. get him to rap for you, it's awesome.
MR KOCH! i love mr.koch such an asome teacher. he is probly the coolest teacher i've had! even though his a red soxs fan!
such a awesome teacher and cool guy. best history teacher ever, and makes class interesting and fun.

BEST HISTORY TEACHER EVER! He's HILARIOUS. Plus, you will seriously learn to love history. He makes it fascinating! VERY, VERY COOL.

the BESTEST and COOLEST teacher ever. he is fun in and out of class. he is a very interesting teacher. most of his students like him.
best teacher ever.. makes class and history fun.. definately want to get him for history
Mr. Koch - the best history teacher ever! Knows stuff indetail, is ready to help...both in and out of the classroom. Understands and respects personal opinion
coolest teacher, lets u sleep during class, soooooo fun
Coolest teacher EVER! I wish every teacher I had was like him! He's just like Mr. Campbell for choir...I just wanna go to his class and leave.
Awesome teacher we watched simpsons about Joan of Arc, too cool.
amazing teacher! he could make a rock understand history! funny class and really interesting.
It's an easy class, but does not always see your hand when it's raised.
this guy is my favorite teacher, he tells jokes and we get away with anything
Easy class and homework and tests. Impossible not to get a good grade. He's very flexible with scheduals.
Mr. Koch is always ready to explain something, in detail, when needed. He is very friendly and gives reminders about everything. He is always willing to lend a helping hand. Hope your broken hand heals soon!
