Mr. Michael Doherty has been one of the most interesting teachers i have ever had. He is so nice. He makes us do eight hours of homework a night, one journal entry every day (except on Fridays..we get to do two!!), and he gives absolutely no extra credit. When he doesnt feel like teaching (typically at least twice a week), he either takes a sick day or puts on a movie. And if it's neither of those things, we get to learn by drawing on white boards and yelling at each other (ranking tasks). We <3 Mr. D

prepare for at least 4 hours of homework each night (favorite quotes: "you're about to see what some believe is one of the finest movies ever made and as luck would have it, it's on the subject we are learning right now" (then shows a 80s Caltech video with Dr.Goodstein))
