Mr. Rzykruski is the teacher in Frankenweenie.

AppearanceEdit

He seems very tall and slim, like Nassor. He always wears glasses and an old jacket, pants and black shoes. He look very sinister, a little bit like Edgar Allan Poe.

PersonalityEdit

Mr. Rzykruski is the new science teacher at New Holland Elementary School. He is 46-year-old. He has a thick, Eastern European accent and a unique way of explaining things. He connects with his students, but parents misunderstand his passionate teaching style. Mr. Rzykruski serves as a mentor and inspiration to Victor, teaching him that science can do both good and bad things and that if a scientist does not put his heart into his experiment, there could be disastrous consequences.

He was unfairly fired when the parents used him as a scapegoat when some kids got injured while doing science work.
