Mr. Mollick

Mr. Mollick was a man with great passion for Economics and this becomes apparent to anyone who sits down in his classroom.  He believed in teaching the fundamentals rigorously while supplementing with drills specifically designed for CAPE success.  Mr. Mollick was one of our favourite teachers at SJC; he was directly responsible for both Maya and Paige’s positions on the Merit list for CAPE Unit 1 and Unit 2.  He was extremely animated and excited students  about economics by encouraging questions and discussions in the classroom. We will miss Mr. Mollick and appreciate all he has done for us over the years. May he rest in peace.
