I remember Mr Kirk very fondly. When I was first in 7th grade he had saved me from the doldrums of a remedial math class that I had wrongly been placed in and did not belong in, as I would do all the days in class work and the home work during class, after 2 weeks I was pulled and given a math placement test and given over to Mr. Kirk. He said "You have some choices to decide upon Mr Johnson, you can go directly into Algebra I, and be with the older high school students, who will probably give you a hard time about being a brainiac because I would be the only one of my age in that class, or I can place you with students more your own age in Pre-Algebra, I will leave the choice up to you Mr. Johnson". I was afraid at the time of being with older high school students, so I made the choice of taking pre-algebra, and he thought no less of my for my choice, just said "Very good Mr. Johnson" I later had Algebra I, Geometry I, Algebra II & Geometry II, and enjoyed each class because of him. I'll always remember him saying "The mind is like a parachute, if it is closed then it will not work." and "Mind like a steel trap" usually to students we had to stop a process for and get them to understand it. He was truly a great teacher! I'm thankful to have had him as my teacher.
