What? Someone else knows (read) Piaget? I thought his name was
banned in education circles :^)

The finest teacher I ever had was not an Ed. major. He was my
physics prof (by accident - I didn't sign up for the course but
got included by clerical error) at MIT. Fair musician on almost
any instrument he got his hands on. _Great_ sense of rhythm (got
the hand clapping perfect on Unsquare Dance every time, even after
sharing a bottle of wine with him in his apartment). His physics
seminars on Saturdays, unannounced, became legend, with people from
far and wide with no real interest in physics attending, enjoying,
and learning.

RIP Dick Feynman.
