I've never had such mixed feelings about a teacher. I liked him in the beginning and then he started to piss me off. If you have your hand up to answer a question he wouldn't call on you but the second you put your hand down bc you don't know the answer is when he calls on you and makes you look like a fool. But he can be nice and funny. Also don't use your phone in or near his classroom even if the period hasn't started

Dircks was hands down the rudest teacher i have ever had. sure, his lessons were interesting... that is when he actually taught. His lack of a sense of humor and harsh grading made the class uncomfortable. I only had him for one year and he clearly did not like me, but its ok the feeling was mutual. On several occassions I tried to express my creativity and was immediately shut down. The class was supposed to express creativity, not limit it. Do not take this class, you will regret it fully.

Mr. Dircks is a really good teacher! I've had him two years in a row now. He really knows what he's talking about, and he does try to help if you don't get something. His notes are really detailed too. Do the homework, because a lot of the time he incorporates the homework into his lessons and asks questions relating to the homework. He follows the rules strictly, so don't take out your cellphone unless you want it taken away. He's corny, but he's funny and a very good teacher!

very strict and has a dry sense of humor. he is so organized and gives you great notes. but honestly i believe he hated the time he lived in because all he talks about is the colonel era and how simple it was like him.

The guy sure knows how to teach but he has to be one of the most structured human beings I have ever met...he probably has never strayed from the rule book in his life in any manner, so try to behave very well in his classes
