My first years at GPC, I worked with George Sanko. What an experience! We used to have those double sections 100 or more students. He is such a character and would tell funny jokes though pertinent to biology such as explaining that when pollen falls on you, you are covered with sperm. I think he broke every meter stick in the science department, slamming them onto desks when he was trying to make a point.

The students loved him (most). He was one of the first faculty members to use a computer and he created his own test bank. He had a computer program that would generate tests including mixing up questions and answers for the multiple-choice questions. That was all DOS-based, so we have really come a long way since then.
