his tests were pretty hard for high school at least compared to other classes i took then and what i've got in college. i feel like he was very energetic in past decades but is kinda burnt out now.

I had Chris back in 1980, he's a wonderful and incredible teacher. I still remember the classes and the laughter. There were certain time the material was boring but he certainly made it more fun than other teachers!

One of my favorite teachers ever. Quite intelligent and laid back. Think I actually taught him a thing or two, i.e. superluminal wave propogation. Cheers if you know what that is.

Absolutely the best teacher I have ever had! He will do anything (even eat chalk) to get his students to know the material. You may actually learn something.
