I had Mr. Hovey for two physics classes in 1970/71 and 1971/72. Epochal in my life. His exams always explored new material that forced us to think about how to use the ideas we'd discussed in class and in problem sets. He had a deep appreciation for the concepts and mathematics far beyond what the curricula, and he communicated a love for the material and its subtleties that have lasted a lifetime, mine. I owe him a a great debt.

I'm taking physics in college now, and every day I think "ohh so that's what Hovey was talking about." Way too hard for a high school course. Doesn't prepare you for the ap exam.

He's brilliant, but his ego is the size of Texas. Not very patiet, and definitely doesn't tolerate trivial questions.
