I took two classes from Hatfield as a student at NKC--creative writing, and The Power of Myth. I graduated 19 years ago, and I still use the skills I learned in his classes on a daily basis. When I edit my writing I ask myself, "Do I need all of these words to communicate my idea? Can I lose these adverbs?" The Power of Myth formed the basis of all of my spiritual pursuits, helping me seek the commonalities among faiths, rather than get caught up in the differences. He's one of the very best.
One of the best teachers I've ever had.
I'm from the class of 05 and i took his mythology class on my senior year. Mr. Hatfield made me want to learn and also to question everything. Undoubtedly the best teacher i've ever had. -Rafael Fideles (Brazil)
One of the few teachers that ever challenged me. His Creative Writing class was priceless.
Mr Hatfield was able to connect with the kids on an truly extraordinary level. He was, without a doubt, the single most influential teacher from my high school career.
Mr. Hatfield is fun and makes English more fun and easy to learn. He is really cool and reminds me of a hippie. In a good way.
He's actually an amazing teacher, you may call it "cutting you down", but he's trying to make you think. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. and he's a great essay-grader.
Great guy. Knows alot about everything and has intelligent views on the world.
What he taught in Mythology was extremely unexpected! It makes you actually think!! Awesome class!!
Mythology is one of the best classes offered at NKC. Man, you won't believe how much you learn from this class!
His Mythology Class, If you go to NorthTown, TAKE IT !
I learned more in his class then in four years at NKC.
