Had Gary Brown for class 1985 through 1987, back when the computers used by LPHS were TRS-80 Model III's! The skills I learned from him then, I can still apply today. He was a great teacher, and I'm sure he still is. His exams were the stuff of nightmares though. Wow, did he have hard tests!
Mr. Brown was my C teacher in 1999-2000 and my Java teacher in 2001. Thanks to him, I am now a full-time computer programmer who loves his job and I don't even have a formal degree in computer science. I owe him a great deal.
He really made things clear in class, just stay on his good side! *bonus* if he forgets someone's name after a certain amount of time, you get doughnuts!
Mr. Brown is an awesome teacher, and takes time for all of his students.
