Bill was a great teacher when I knew him. I remember him once saying, "The thing I hate about you guys is that you never show up, but you still do well on the exams." He was smart enough not to chase after us for not showing up and to me, that means he has a realistic head on his shoulders.
He was very good at what he taught...it's not his fault I had no clue what was going on. He gave me a 60% so I wouldn't have to write the final exam!! I will always be grateful for that.
Mr. McCarthy was the best. His way of teaching actually let me understand the stuff. And his driver's licence with the stereotypical biker look is priceless.
Really good programming teacher. Too bad he retired though, because he knew his stuff and taught it well.
