Well, this would make my first math teacher that was actually a math teacher, really. But shyness or no shyness, I wound up really enjoying Math 115 a lot - it took her a while to warm up, but (Elizabeth? Miss Perez? Either or both sound odd) was actually a really good teacher under the shyness. The class as a GROUP made her a little nervous, but she was fine communicating one-on-one.
I don't think this guy was ever or would ever be anything FAINTLY like a good teacher.
