Having worked as a substitute teacher, I can today appreciate the challenges of working as a regular teacher. Mr. Kurek was always professional and even-tempered. He taught me how to use semicolons together with transitional words such as however, therefore, nevertheless, etc. Whenever one of us said "you know," he immediately said, "no, I don't know." Having attended Rutgers Prep, I had a slightly snobbish attitude. I was surprised to learn how little I knew. A truly admirable teacher.
The kind of teacher you never forget. OUR TOWN forever.
Mr. Kurek is such a sweetheart. i love whenever he subs for any of my teachers. Hes really helpful, and cool and he should come back!
