Krikby is one of the best teachers I have ever had. His class is always fun and different. Its not just a crap load of notes. Engages his class and really tries to work on our level. He doesn't make you feel stupid for not knowing something.

Kirky has an interesting approach to teaching. He clearly loves teaching, and that is the only reason he is in a full time capacity. He is incredibly knowledgeable and makes the class time very fun
