I had Mr. Gurney 11 years ago, for two classes. I am a teacher now, not long removed from another career. This guy was one of the best 11 years ago. I can't even imagine now. Teaching is an art in itself.

I took his AP class in 2007/8 and it was a great experience. Material was difficult in spots but he met us after school to review. He also predicted the huge stock market sell off in 07'.

He enjoys nicknaming students a little too much. Textbook chapter quizzes are tedious and tests are long, but class isn't too difficult. Good at making obscure info seem to be relevant & interesting
