My favorite professor at college was just awarded Educator of the Year! Dr. Gooch teaches Music Analysis III and IV, meaning I've been in his class room for the past year. Yes, he's just as odd and funny as he looks, maybe even more. He's the kind of teacher that loves his area of study so much that you're almost forced to love it too. He wants his students to understand the concepts and do well in his class, a rare quality among professors these days.
Anyways, congratulations Dr. Gooch! No one deserves this honor as much as you do.
