I graduated two years ago but I had to come back to rate Mr. Keston. He's a great teacher and made math understandable and quite interesting. If you look past his hunched physique and close to gothic wear, you'll see he's super smart and super sweet and helpful.

he's really nice and he cooperates with you if you cooperate with him! make sure you pay attention in class though especialllly if you have him in one of those later bands, because the work is fairly tough.
