He was one of the most impactful teachers in my entire life. His class was hard! He definitely challenged us but taught us to rise to the challenge and exceed even our own expectations. I remember learning that it was cool to love Mozart (which had kind of been my own little secret for a long time), not cool to eat tuna (oh the poor dolphins!) and torture to listen to Barry Manilow (which made lunch detention all the more awful). Truly an AWESOME teacher.
It took me several years and many, many teachers to earn my M.B.A. and law degree. Out of every teacher/ professor I ever had, Mr. Kosner stands out as my favorite. Reading other's reviews who feel the same, it makes me realize just how truly special Mr. Kosner was when it came to his craft.... teaching children. He taught me that it was ok to think outside the box- there can be more than one correct answer and more than one way to get there.
I was in Mr. Kosner's cl*ss circa 1985-86 when he was brand new to La Paz. I saw this book about the power of asking questions http://amorebeautifulquestion.com/ and thought of Mr. Kosner who rewarded brilliant questions (I think he called them "Noogie" questions). I think I was awarded 2 or 3 Noogie questions that year :) He stands out as my best teacher. George D.
Honestly, the best teacher I've ever had. Truly cares about each and every student.
I loved those "my dinner with..." projects. He was hard, but awsome.
Mr. Kosner wus the greatest teacher that i ever had!! Teddy Roosevelt is the greatest! I love you Mr. K!!!
