Fair grader, knowledgable, makes you handwrite everything which is pretty much the only downside. I wouldn't categorize him as strict, but he knows how to control a class.

i only had him for a day I AM SOOO LUCKY that i managed to switch out of his HORRIBLE class!!! he has a very strict standard, wants your notes to be set up a certain way. if you fail to meet his expectations, he fails you with a "thanks for holding the whole class behind" like first of all it's MY OWN notes i can set it up whatever way i want and HOW THE HECK is this holding the WHOLE class behind? so obscure and narrow-minded guy, can't even imagine what having him for a ONE YEAR would be like

Kozuch has no idea how to handle teenagers. He shouldn't teach high school students. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHARGE YOUR PHONE IN CLASS

Although he is "passionate about what he teaches", his expectations are high, and also slightly ridiculous. He has a very strict idea of what appeals to him, and doesn't include much room for personal or creative excellence. If you're a perfect student, I'm sure you'll enjoy his class, but anything less or different will easily make it a nightmare.

"He is more passionate about his job than almost any other teacher I've ever had, and more knowledgeable about history than any other history teacher I've ever had." I agree. By far the best teacher!

I think he can be very strict and biased. I am in Glob Com and he is always nice and fun with the honors kids but not so much the Curr1 and Curr2. This also agrees with yalls previously posts.

Mr. Kozuch is a great teacher in my opinion. His tests are hard, but that makes students push themselves harder and study more, which is a good thing.

You are the coolest Mr. Kozuch, even when you are in China. I wish Mrs. Linder would go away and you would come back. In 2 years the timing will be perfect to get started on the prodject since you will be 35 and i will be out of High School.
