Mike was a great educator. Thank you for touching so many students.

Wow! Mike Kirk was the real thing: a genuine free-thinking spirit without a moments hesitation to speak up on issues that mattered to him. He made a lasting impression on many and helped shape the Juneau community.
The world, and Alaska, needs more souls like Mike Kirk.

I remember him fondly. Even as a ninth-grader, I realized that his eccentricity and irreverence were good things (plus, my mother also had him as a teacher and said that he remembered her by name when she saw him at parent-teacher meetings.) Definitely one of the good guys!

Well old friend from many years back, we picked wild cotten at Eagle River. I enjoyed knowing you, see you in Valhala.

Mike was the penultimate, irreverent teacher. I remember him zooming down the hall of JD High on his chair, chuckling as he went. I'm sure administration was not real happy about that. Some kids really liked him and learned a lot from him--some didn't. I was one who didn't learn to love math, but he taught me a lot about life, especially after we reconnected years after graduation. He was very active in the Juneau dance community, which, I'm sure, helped to keep him up and moving on his own. Unfortunately, I was unable to visit with him after his mishap and while he was in Wildflower Court. I will miss you, Mike.

As a one-year student one didn't really know Mr. Kirk; so much as one experienced him. My experience was short but never to be forgotten. Rest in peace.

I was one of the fortunate people for whom Mr. Kirk stuck his neck out. I will remember him fondly, always. Rest in peace and thank you for your kindness.
