Teacher Tributes: Physics


Surprisingly, considering the nature of physics, this tribute is probably the least scientific of the lot.

I had fantastic science teachers through most of high school, but the biggest help I got from one of them had almost nothing to do with the curriculum.

Braveheart Through a Kid’s Eyes


Sure, as kids grow older, there are tiny tot moments that no longer occur…

But the breadth and depth of media and other experiences you can share with them constantly increases.

Instead of goofy comedies or “so bad its good” films, I intended to elevate our father daughter viewing one night with the star packed, five Oscar award winning, critically acclaimed if historically inaccurate film, Braveheart.

Turns out encouraging her to enjoy biting satire, and Mystery Science Theater 3000 while encouraging the passing on of my own smart-ass genes came back to bite me in the butt.
