Very smart, never needed to refer to the text book when asked a question. I dont even know how he found the time to teach with all the extra volunteer work he did. One of very few teachers that all students respected and would fit in hanging out with students out side of school.
My daughter loved him. Although he plans to retire, we hope he stays involved with Envirothon and the school! The day he leaves is going to be a sad, sad day at SVRSS.
Best teacher ever!!! Very good at supporting one's interest in the outdoors and environmental management. His classes and assignments took absolutely no effort to complete, but everything that he taught seemed to stick. Classes are full of exciting field trips! He also goes that extra mile as he's involved in so many extra-curricular things including coaching football and Envirothon. He has been a big influence on me and a big contibutor to what I've accomplished to date. Thanks Rick!
Rick is a cool guy, its too bad that the people that take his courses are just there to fool around and get an easy grade b/c his courses are really interesting
