  1. mr. Goykovich taught me in junior high at Brilliant High School. One of the best teachers I ever had! God Bless

  2. He was my very favorite teacher ever. Only one u:of two that left a lasting impression on me. He was a flurry of ideas. He told us we were capable of doing much more than anyone expected. He taught me sculpture while learning history. How history & geography are intertwined. Both still main interests of mine. Once he looked at me & said “I am going to tell you a fact you will never forget…….the battle of Hasting was fought in 1066.” He will never know he was right, I never forgot. RIP.

  3. He was unique, entertaining and inspiring as my teacher at Brilliant High School. He sometimes stirred the pot too. I learned a lot from him. Glad to read he had a big family. I hope they gave him a rich life.
