Mr. Croze is by far my favorite teacher I have ever had. He is very helpful and understands that not everyone thinks the same way. His door is always open 30 minutes before school starts and he is willing to assist on homework every day. His lessons make sense and he really takes time to introduce topics and make certain we understand them fully. He is not only great at his job, educating us, but he always has a contagious positive attitude and is always motivating us to keep on going and to never give up.
