David is a wonderful teacher and mentor for my 8 year old! He always makes time to listen and answer questions. As a parent, I truly appreciate his patience and understanding. In the mornings on the way to school, my son thinks of questions to ask David and we go find him right away. My son loves science class and looks forward to learning from David!
