Chau Ly-Hai

Chau Ly-Hai of École secondaire Les Etchemins in Charny, Quebec, is always encouraging students to push themselves a little harder. A self-described conservative teacher, Mr. Ly-Hai argues that many new teaching methods create the impression that students are learning something when they are not. However, he also believes that traditional approaches can be improved. He has put considerable effort into making calculations and directed experiments more interesting for students. One notable example is his chemistry sound and light show, which features explosions, flames, smoke and the odd joke or two.
