He taught a class on dynamic stratigraphy, and emphasised cyclicity and 
carbonate/clastic systems.  It was the only class I've ever had where I

Miss Keck.  She taught my 9th grade adv. placement American History, 
drove a vintage 50s Chevrolet with huge fins, and was affectionately know

any other teacher I've ever know.  She taught me how to learn.
