Davey The Best Teacher I Ever Had (BS!!!) (15) RE: The Best Teacher I Ever Had (BS!!!) 23 Sep 99

I grew up in the military (father was a career soldier) and during my last year of school I was constantly nagged to join the army.. No Way! but I couldn't have stated exactly why at the time.. I wasn't particularly encouraged in anything else, so I sort of drifted through school just getting by. During grade 12 my homeroom/math teacher, Barry Attridge, used to write a problem on the side board every week for those who wished to work on it, and I accepted the challenge and solved the majority of them. When I barely passed the year (with my best marks being in the maths), his comments on my final report card were "This boy's waste of talent cannot be adequately described in such a small space." So here I am still wasting my talent (**GRIN**) talking to you Mudcatters when I should be working.
