Loved him, he's funny, energetic, knowledgeable, and teaches in enduring ways.
So sad he retired! He was a great asset to the school.
He wasn't kind to about two students, but those were the ones who would cut and try to act as class clowns.

Mr kurtzman is one of the best math teachers ever. He explains very well, hes funny with his work, and he is very helpful. His class is never boring. But he doesn't really care about the students only if they are willing to work. Hes great!

He understands the topics very well but doesn't teach them to us that well. He really just takes pictures of the textbook and puts them on the smart board for us to copy down. If you don't study or take meticulous notes, you will fail. He is hard to confront about help or missing anything, he really doesn't care about the students, he doesn't care if you get an A or a D. Tests are extremely difficult.

Really good teacher...always prepared and can answer any questions. Try not to be absent on quiz and test days cause he really doesn't like make-up tests and scheduling them.

If u just want to learn math he's a good teacher, but if you want a nice funny teacher you have the wrong guy. He makes really bad jokes and is extremely annoying. Also he gives a lot of hw.

He is a very good class time teacher but has no interest in helping you after school and he says by appointment but makes an excuse for not being able to help you that day every time.

He is not flexible. He grades based on who does the work, and is not willing to listen to those who are disorganized, but understand the subject. Therefore, I think he would be better suited as drill sargeant, who could provide comic-relief, than a math teacher.
