He is one of two math teachers i like. His classes are good but could get boring sometimes (come on it's math). However, I learned a lot from him.

Best Math teacher at Murrow. Maybe the best teacher at Murrow, period. Really cares about his students and knows his "stuff." He's funny and warm and his class is never boring - and I don't even like Math.

Gee whiz! Despite the fact his sarcasm and jokes are as dry as cold turkey, his methods of teaching is effective. Overall, he deserves a "C+".

Kiernan is the best math teacher I have ever had. He's the only teacher you can learn from without a book. He might seem intimidating but he's a great guy.

I liked him a lot. I thought his overall teaching method was great. He could be hard sometimes but it's only to prepare us for the AP- exam.
