he is not a good teacher, lectures on and on and does not stop, very boring, one good thing I like about his class is I get to sleep and look out the window, I am also very upset at him because he did not let me bring my pet snake with me he told he it was too dangerous and would distract everyone and no one would pay attention to the pssudocooooodeee

Lectures feels slow but he's a great teacher nonetheless. He's always willing to help, and he's a supportive internship advisor.

Out of all the other cs teachers, Mr. Grack is the best. He gives us extra time on tests, although his voice drags forever when he lectures....

Makes 1 sentence into a full on lecture,. Nevertheless Mr. Grack is an amazing compsci teacher. I remember shoving a wire into the outlet and it exploded and everyone looked at me. Mr. Grack sat at the corner on his desk as if nothing happened. "Guys do your work" was all he said. XD

Easy going teacher that takes his time and makes the class roll at a slow pace. Lecturers can be boring, but he is always there to help. Although a little sloppy sometimes, he is usually fair with grades. Tests are like the packets and he goes over most of the material. Surely one of the more knowledgeable comp sci teachers. Really nice and gentle guy.

Mr grack is the best...he understands our stress and will postpone tests for us. Whenever I don't understand anything, he takes the time to explain thoroughly. Even though his lectures may be boring, they are rly informational. Prob one of my fav teachers freshman year...although the final was kinda tricky

Mr. Grack is just the nicest teacher ever. He explains his lessons thoroughly and never lets a student fall behind. Great person with a sweet personality but may be a little boring at times. Sadly, I will going to Coglianese next semester and personally not looking forward to it. :(

Duuuude. Mr Grack is the coolest teacher on the whole campus. Duuuude man. Sorry Mr Madrid but Mr Grack is so nice. He sooooo helpful. I love the class he teaches (CLA) and he is SOOOOOO nice. He is never ever mean and dude seriously he is funniest teacher. Mr Grack's tests are easy because he is such a good teacher. Just last week I didn't get flip-flops at all. But now, man, I'm the master, literally the master at flip-flops because of his helpfulness. THANK YOU MR GRACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sure, Mr. Grack wasn't very interesting, but he was very nice and very helpful. If you had a questions, he wouldn't stop explaining it until you understood it and he was my favorite tech adviser. You could get away with a lot in his classes, but I feel bad that people took advantage of this.

He was a great Troy Tech advisor. Very thorough and does his job well. Underappreciated by students; he has a lot of knowledge, and if you talk to him outside of class you'd see he's got some good advice for your future.

FOP itself is pretty easy and fun. Grack was nice and it seemed he wanted to be friendly, but his lectures are quite tedious and repetitive. I'd cut him some slack, though, he was lenient. TOO many life lessons, though. xD

He is HILARIOUS. He says things over and over again, which makes everything take a lot longer, but it's funny. Idk, I like his class b/c he lets everyone do whatever they want. He has no control over the class at all.

He enjoys what he teaches, but staying awake can be a challenge sometimes. Pay attention to assignment due dates, they can sneak up on you if you don’t write them down the day you are given them.
