My motivation for teaching:
Teaching high school is my calling. Watching the light come on in a student's eyes when a concept is understood is the best experience in the world. Teaching is a game. I love to play it because I can make up the rules according to the needs of the other players.

My favorite quote:
"God doesn't play dice" Einstein

well actually I think He does...

A personal humorous school story:
I was teaching projectile motion last week. One of the boys got this horrified look on his face after the 5th step in the problem. He said, "I used to think that those blackboards full of numbers written by scientists was just made up for the movies....but its real!!!!"
