Hes the hardest teacher Ive ever had, but also plain bad at teaching. He thinks he knows everything but he doesnt. If you argue something he doesnt agree with, no matter how well-put the writing is, youll get a bad grade. He laughs at your questions. If you ask him to repeat himself, hell say no and keep going. His class moves way too fast and is extremely unorganized. Hell talk about nothing for a week and then cram five lessons into one; no review day. Also, you dont get credit for doing work.

Mr. Kucharski was not only the most fantastic teacher, but the most wonderful human being I have ever met. Through sophomore MWH volunteering, I have come to know Kucharski as a truly genuine and passionate person. He made me care about history more than I ever have, and as a sophomore, I looked forward to being in his class every single day. I've had many great teachers, but I've never had one as good as Kucharski. You're lucky if you get to even have a conversation with him, he's that good.

Mr. Kucharski is by far the best teacher I had in my four years at New Trier. He is brilliant, exuberant, and hilarious. He is a "must have" teacher, and I highly recommend taking AP Euro with him. One year with Kucharski changed my life. He will challenge you to think about history (and about life) in a whole new way. Expect to work hard if you take Euro with him, but you will see that it's well worth it.

He's the best teacher I have ever had. He is smart, interesting, and he really cares about what he's saying. He makes you care too. The class is hard, but the essays are very open and interesting. He shines new light on subjects, and he's one of the most hilarious teacher EVER. Seriously he's so funny. He's extremely clear and helpful, and he gets people involved in his lectures.

He is tough, but fair. He is very interesting and will never lose your attention. If you listen to him you'll be fine. Also if you need ANY help don't hesitate to go in for help he will go above and beyond the call of duty to help you.

He is hands down the funniest and one of the best teachers I've had a New Trier. I love his class, his lecture are hilarious and interesting. You can tell he's passionate about what he does, especially when we talk about art and literature. It makes it more fun, that and when he talks about his trips to Europe. He's the best, and he's cute.

I'm a student at Lane Tech, I've only had the oppurtunity to sit in on his Science class on a field tripfun! We made vanilla ice cream. He walked us through each step of the project and he helped every student when hey had a problem. I may not go to this school , but I wish I did, all because of him. New Trier is awesome.

LOVE THIS MAN! Truly interested in and passionate about history, and makes AP euro worth taking. I was put in the class by accident--I signed up for AP poli sci--and it was one of the best accidents of my highschool career. Poli Sci, on the other hand, was taight by Levin, who apparently could not have cared less about making her class fun or interesting.

such a funny guy, but his tests were near impossible but he doesn't really go by the books and will just look at the grades and guestimate a grade which in most cases is good
