10 years a teacher at our school.
Mr. Mochnoc still is the lively, controversial spirit he was when he first arrived perhaps even more so.
To spend a period in his class is to experience something emotional:
anger — arguments before tests
puzzlement — test grades written in Russian
disillusionment — finding out what your real test grade was
and laughter — when he says your granny could have done better than you!!
emphasizing points with sweeping arm movements,
his hands ghosted by chalk dust,
Mr. Mochnoc is a strong, enthusiastic teacher.
He delights in raiding lavatories and can always be seen standing in a shadowy corner at junior high dances.
According to whom you talk he is a
but always a nice guy.
And so to the Friendly Russian, we dedicate our 1971 Kennetteer.
