I had Mr. K at Lincoln Hall and he was one of the best teachers I had there. When I read things here that say anything negative it upsets me cuz usually that's kids who didn't make the play or choral, etc. He truly cared about the kids he taught and about teaching. I learned so much about so many things, and I remember it ALL. He's talented, and other teachers at LH should care about their students like he does. Thanks Mr. K - my appreciation of music & theater began with you - thank you!

He is not good at teaching the material and honestly is a little bit of a show off. He has trouble controlling the kids in his class. Wastes time and is not very productive. I didn't try out for the play but heard that he was not good at time management during the play either. Hard to believe he got hired.
