[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Drawings spark memories forgotten.

After three years in a file cabinet, a student-made book filled with Pre-AP Pre-Calculus teacher Randal Cary’s iconic phrases make a reappearance.

With a cowboy for a father and a home in the ‘boonies,’ Cary listened to these phrases growing up and passed them down to his unsuspecting students walking into day one of Pre-AP Pre-Calculus.

The end of the school year marks Cary’s retirement, but his odd phrases will remain in students’ memories long after.
