My experience with Mr. Hoxie was basic math the prequisite to Algebra. I've never had an affinity for mathematics, and never will. Mr. Hoxie helped me refresh, or in some cases, re-learn concepts I'd forgotton. I walked away from that class with more than complete knowledge: an understanding of the concepts which I'd never known prior. I would like to attribute that to Mr. Hoxie's unique, yet thoughtful teaching practices. He works towards understanding rather than mere knowledge.
alot of people hate mr hoxie, but i had him for geometry my junior year, and he was a very good teacher..and it makes me mad when people make fun of him.
Hoxie... your teaching methods could use a little sprusin' up... but you are a pretty nice guy.
