Mr. Aldrich was my 9th grade lab science teacher at Simsbury High School! He made science class come alive for all of us. He was a wonderful teacher and full of fun. He also taught me how to drive. I remember he took three of us out at a time to drive and so we could all learn from each other. He taught us about the CCD curve. Anyone who he taught to drive would know what that is. What a fine man and enthusiastic teacher! Dr. Risa Blair

Mr. Aldrich was my 7th grade science teacher at Swift Jr, High School in Oakville. It must have been his first or second year teaching as I am 72., however, I've never forgotten him. I hear his voice when doing heavy work, "work is measured in foot pounds". He also taught me about the workings of the internal combustion engine. I'm thankful for that . I remember him walking in to the classroom with his brief case and raincoat. He made science interesting and enjoyable. Thank you Mr. Aldrich. Sympathies to your family and loved ones.
