This guy is awesome, (his nickname from other physics teachers is "Rod Dog") who else would have a remote control tank hidden in his classroom?? he's a bit lost at times which makes him even funnier... workin at the school since 1993 i think, so 19 years so far... and i garuantee he will not retire until he goes completely insane, and perhaps not even then :D

Strange. Goes REALLY off topic. I certainly don't want to know if his garage door makes strange sounds at night, or that "the answer's out there, gentlemen". Lacks answers for in-depth questions

Somewhat odd. Good understanding of his subject, but lacks the articulacy to deliver this to the students. Can be found lacking at deeper levels of understanding.

had him for 4/5 years, quite sad really he fails to listen to students and does not get his details right before teaching. Always sidetrack and odd, talking about random stuff like his band ColdFusion

Enjoys reminding students that force equals ma and that physics is power. One of my more odd teachers during my time.
