- “Before taking Dr. Knotts physics courses, I couldn’t even do basic algebra. His encouragement led me to be successful in a class I thought that I would surely fail. As a new professor to Grand View, I think that he has created a classroom environment that any student can thrive in.” - Robin Fenton
