He is quite blind; he literally has to put on glasses with a huge manification in them and a piece of paper to his nose to read it. He's also easily sidetracked into stories about his niece, whom he clearly adores. But he's so enthusiastic and great at his job.
I also really like my Bio11 teacher, Thomson. He's Scottish (not English and not Irish he was quick to point out in his introduction. I could tell not English, but I haven't mastered the difference between an Irish and a Scottish accent. Don't laugh at me.) His class will be a bit drky but he has done a lot of traveling because of his major, Tropical Sciences. (Yes, he majored in that. In Scotland. Go figure.) He promised (threatened?) to regale us with tales of the many "interesting" parasites he picked up while in South America.
He teaches both the lecture and the lab, and it's nice to have that consistancy. The girls in my lab group seem hardworking and dedicated, so hopefully we will get an easy A!
There's also one guy in our group and he's either a bit slow or he doesn't care about school at all, because he barely participated in our lab yesterday. I wonder if he's intimidated by three girls. Maybe that's it.
