My memory isn’t very good, so there are very few teachers that I remember from middle/elementary school, and there will be few that I remember from high school ten years from now. I can confidently say that Doc. Fon is one of them.
Not just for his beautiful accent or amazing sense of humor, but for unbridled love for physics. I don’t think most students appreciate that enough for this.

One of the greatest minds in our high school, Dr. Fon has an impecable amount of information to teach all of us. He is an idol and a popular figure, and you've heard of him even if you've never taken a science course.

Doc. Fon is a man and most knowledgeable teacher in the school. AP Courses he teaches are the best courses in the HS.

Doc Fon was definitely one of my favorite teachers throughout my high school experience. He is truly a college professor and teaches his physics classes accordingly. He is very knowledgable (has 2 PhDs) and is one of funniest, coolest, and chillest teachers I've ever met. I highly recommend him for future students, especially if you are Russian then you are guaranteed a good grade. Doc Fon is the man all the way!!

He expects that everyone is as smart as he is (which is impossible because he has two Ph. D's). He definitely plays favorites (loves Russians) and is not the best teacher. STUDY AT HOME OR ELSE YOU WILL NOT UNDERSTAND CLASS. He is a funny guy and a good person but if you question him you will be sorry. In an argument he always thinks he is right.

Probably the smartest man in the whole school (he has two PhD's) but he's a really bad teacher. He treats us like a college class. However, he does have an amazing personality! He will probably like you more if you're a girl and/or you're Russian. At the end of the marking period, go "talk" to him about your grade. If he likes you, he will most likely bump you up.

youre probably going to fail the tests, but dont worry. as long as he sees you try, youre going to get a B no matter how you do on the tests.go see him and let him know youre making an effort, and he might even give you an A. the NICEST guy ever.
