Former student supports teacher who brought real life to the classroom

Mr. Goldberg is one of those teachers who students remember as "the teacher who made learning fun." I was in Mr. Goldberg's class in the 1992-1993 school year and I have not forgotten the ways he made chemistry (a subject I did not initially enjoy) real to the students by demonstrating how chemistry affected the world around us.
   Any allegations of danger that he is now charged with need to be carefully assessed. Although I do not fully know the extent of the allegations being claimed at this time, I want to voice my support of a teacher who wasn't afraid to bring real life to the classroom. Thank you, Mr. Goldberg, for making my educational experiences memorable!
