My goodness.... I was a straight A student, and his chemistry class was the ONLY class I ever dropped in high school (1990's). Not saying he was a bad man, just not approachable for some, At least he was nice enough to sign me out of his class just before the final exam.
I had Mr. Ibrahim for science in 1977 and absolutely adored him. He was very helpful, encouraging and had a warm sense of humour. I have many fond memories of his classes and am happy to see that he is still sharing his knowledge with the students of St. Joe's.
He promised if I never took this science again, he would pass me. We both kept our promise - 36 years ago.
