The only teacher in high school so far that I've ever loved. I mean, he takes his job as a teacher seriously, and he strives to make sure that students in his class have a great time playing sports, whether they're at a more athletic, competitive level or at the recreational level. He cares for his students so much; he's like a father/grandpa to us. He talks about his life (and being 60-something, his life is pretty darn interesting) to help us better relate to the class. Overall superb person!

This is ridiculous. 1% taken away if you are absent. Even with EXCUSED absenses. So if you have a fieldtrip from another class, then you still get that 1% snatched away! That's extremely unfair! My schedule does not revolve around PE alone.
