The dichotomy about Mr. Burke was a tricky one. If you got on the wrong side with him, he was a nightmare for a lot of students.
But as a Biology teacher, he was second to none and one of the greatest teachers in Newpark history..a man that could make you not only love the subject, but make you learn it in such a way that to this day I can draw life-cycles for Spyrogyra and Fasciola Hepatica with my eyes closed. He was so bloody good!

The epitome of a great science teacher, only sorry I didn't have him for longer, has inspired people to go into science as a career. The science he taught me has stayed with me.
