He only teaches Physics at TSFX.
No, he teaches here at MGS! and he's deputy head of physics...(i mean...his email address that was in another thread was @mgs.vic.edu.au!)...Even on the TSFX brochures they say "Senior Physics Teacher - Melbourne Grammar School".

No, I meant: at TSFX, he only teaches Physics, sorry!

I haven't had him for other subjects.

Ah, sorry, I misunderstood you (confusing placement of "only"). The only reason he also has to take bio and chem (thankfully only year 10 and 1/2) at our school is coz of the school's policy of getting teachers to take a variety in subjects. He says he basically isn't even qualified to take them, so I really don't get the logic of the policy.

best physics teacher must be the only physics teacher in our whole school. She's such a gun. You need first hand experience to understand ":p

Neil Cockburn, was far and away the best teacher at my school, and has been teaching yr 12 physics for around 30 years.

LOL i used to think that ftw meant that, until someone told me what it really meant (and commented that it was extrememly fob)

Best teacher (on the basis that he knows his stuff) - Mr. Denver, but he's retired now
