I had him for Biology when I was a Junior and I never forgot what he said about the human body: we are all "walking sticks with an anus!" Quite a thing to say to impressionable minds.  Even so, he was a lot of fun!

Mr Bawden was the best teacher I ever had! He influenced my life more than any other. I appreciated his caring nurturing attitude.
