In my opinion mr. Halpern did the absolute best thing in science teacher can do for a student. He of course covered all of the curriculum based stuff he was supposed to but he sparked your interest in science. I owe the scientist in me to him and a handful of other great teachers. Who showed you what the world was made up of and how you could affect it. He brought you to the edge of what was possible and explained the next chapter could be written by you.
