Quincy had this to say about her teacher: “Mr. Kloczko is an influential teacher who has fostered my growth from the day I stepped foot into his classroom. I have had the opportunity to have Mr. Kloczko as my teacher for four years at CHS, most recently through the Science Research program. With his guidance, he has helped me become the student I am today. I am thankful for his vast knowledge and help with all of my research endeavors. He has helped me become critical of time management and confident in my own work. Mr. Kloczko has also put me on a path of professionalism, teaching me skills that will help me personally and academically. I will forever be grateful to have had Mr. Kloczko as a teacher and will carry on all of the things he has taught me.”
