I connected with Kovalcin on so many levels. 1) He loves teaching so you can't fail; 2) He inspires you to become better at teaching others. Thanks to him, I was great at presentations during my engineering undergrad at TCNJ; 3) He will find a way to relate physics to each individual - sports, music, etc. Best teacher I *ever* had. God bless him.

I am now a teacher with a masters degree and Mr. Kovalcin is one of the very few teachers from H.S. that made a difference for me. He is in it for the kids.
