I had Mr. Berry for pre-calculus at Fairfax HS in 75/76. He literally turned my life around. I was strung out on drugs, running with a bad crowd, and getting a lot of Ds and Fs in courses. Mr. Berry took me under his wing, taught me a love of math and gave me the confidence I had never had. He was very patient with me. I now have a BS & MS in Electrical Engineering and own a company where many of us make a comfortable living solving complex word problems with computers. Thanks Mr. Berry!

He is probably the best computer science and math teacher to ever enter TJ. If you get him as a sub then, you might learn more than when your teacher was there. If you don't understand something, ask him. He actually helps you one on one if you need it. He knows everything in this subject area.

I had him for Intro CS. He's extremely nice and will let you code what you want if you're good. The more lenient side of Berry/Drobnis. He does mind talking in class, though he doesn't have a mean side to him. His teaching moves very slowly, so no one listens in class. But if you don't understand something, he will explain it to you until you get it.
