It has been 20 years since I sat in Mr. Knox's class and it still feels like yesterday! He made math reachable and we never knew what to expect! Now, as a teacher, I think of him fondly and remember how he taught and what he would do to make class fun. It is Mr. Knox's understanding, knowledge, and assistance that has helped me in my journey to become the best teacher I can be!

One of the best teachers and people I've ever met! It's hard to find nice people like him in life. Even though geometry was challenging, I always felt at home in his class. He's an incredible teacher and if you ever get him, you've been blessed! He always seems to pair what we're learning about with light humor of some sort (most notably his great puns!) and I often wonder if he sees shapes and geometry everywhere he looks! You won't get a more dedicated teacher than him! GO MR STARFISH! :D

I miss Mr. Knox. He is unarguably the best teacher to teach calculus to juniors. Amid all the politics at Troy, Mr. Knox seems to go straight past that, finding true passion and enthusiasm for providing straightforward education to his students.
