I have an acute Photoshop obsession because of RVZ. I will never forget his class- so many memories made. He's been teaching for a while and he has never taken a sick day lol. super dedicated and generally a very memorable and classic Pocock icon!

great teacher. many students dont like him because them assume he is just a hard marker. if you get to know him and actually act nice to him hes amazing. im happy i got to not only learn from him but also to be his friend

i had him two years ago for photography.I hated him at the beginning of the school year, he expects you to get everything the first time he says it and he gets mad if you don't. his marks are too subjective, and he is a little too anal about dress code. he is a nice guy i guess and he is a good teacher, but he needs to be more caring and understanding

I had Mr. Z in 1987 and he was a great teacher. I believe it was his first year. I am now in my tenth year of education. I just completed my first year as principal and am starting my Doctorate program. Thank you Mr. Z!
