Speaking for the class of '81, Mr. Benzinger rocked. He challenged those who were not being challenged in other classes, was always available, made the subject engaging and accessible. If half of those who teach were like this man then kids would actually want to go to school.
Far and Away the greatest teacher I had in a school full of great teachers. He made Physics relatable, understandable, and fun. The man is a gift and we should all be thankful that he made the decision to devote his life to teaching. He is brilliant and would have gone far in the 'civilian' world of the sciences.
Knows his science really well, but isn't that great at teaching it. His pysics class is REALLY hard...but he's a good guy and is always willing to help you.
Mr. Benzinger! You rock! You're like my favorite teacher at the school!
