Two decades of teaching physics at Colquitt County High School, and nine more as a junior high science teacher before that, have been a mutual proposition for Tommy Hall and his students. They benefit from his enthusiasm and innovation; he is kept young by their curiosity and warmth. Ideas like video-taped lectures for at-home use, and a computerized laser apparatus he developed for his optical physics lab led to two State Science Teacher of the Year awards, and in 1990 to a Presidential Science Teacher Award. Department chairman for seven years, Mr. Hall is in perpetual motion, teaching approximately five physics sections every year.
