He was a very effective teacher also. He had a great classroom environment that made it fun and exciting, and being a chemistry teacher it is hard to be exciting with the subject being not so exciting. He would know when to joke and when to be serious. He commanded respect in his classroom cause after all he was the teacher. He would always share life stories with us and joke around with us. We used to play games every once and a while, which kept the mood light and fun. He took the stress off of us a lot. I used to also go to his class as a student aid in my study hall, the things I learned from him I will never forget.

Let the man teach!
Going into my junior year I had no idea on what I really was doing with my life. My Chemistry teacher was able to inspire me and focus me in a way that no one had been able to. This teacher was loud and proud. He had a way of having fun while at the same time being able to keep a good learning environment. He was a large man, very large, when he wasn't at the school teaching he probably was lifting weights. He was an avid body builder which really added to his persona. He also had a great understanding of life, he was really down to earth and got what it was all about. He became a friend to many students including myself. He became close to me and because of that he was also very real with me. When he could see that i was not really trying he would strait up tell me what was wrong and that he knew I could do so much better. I was able to talk to him with more than just school also. I was able to discuss my life and girls and problems I had. He helped me many times with dealing on certain situations.
