Bio and Links
Bio Photo I taught Chemistry and Physics at the Middle, High School, and College levels for 35 years before retiring in 2013. I studied under Hubert Alyea who was a Grand Master Chemical Demonstrator at Princeton and the model and inspiration for Walt Disney's movie, The Absent Minded Professor. I also taught using the Alyea Method and Julius Sumner Miller type Demos.

"Chance Favors Only The Prepared Mind"

If it is green or wiggles -- It's Biology
If it explodes or smells bad -- It's Chemistry
If it doesn't work -- It's Physics

A good teacher is one who explains a concept.
A better teacher is one who asks questions about the concept.
And the best teacher is one who demonstrates the concept then solicits the questions from the students ( or as Julius Sumner Miller would say, "Why is that so?" ).

Both of my Grandmothers told me in essence the following:
"A person is not really gone if they are remembered and people only die when we forget them."
