Mr. Oz is awesome! A man of few words :). Always there for his students regardless of time or day. One of most dedicated teacher I know. He guides students without overpowering and nurtures their own thinking and creativity. He is definitely a lifechanger for my son!
Mr Ozdemir has always been like a second father to me. His presence and influence allowed me to open up and enjoy robotics for more reasons than you'd enjoy an afterschool club that required skills in computer science and engineering. Even in his AP Physics class that I struggled to complete, he was always able to allow us to enjoy it at the end. He truly cares for his students as he would his own family. I remember holding a surprise baby shower for him and his wife in return for the years of kindness they've shown us throughout the year. There's never a dull moment around him and I know for a fact that I won't be the only one missing him when I graduate.
Mr. Oz has always been an amazing teacher and mentor. In my high school years, the experiences and skills I gained from being in robotics under his guidance has been a huge contribution to my success in college. Even now, in my second year at the Rochester Institute of Technology, I keep in contact with Mr. Oz and enjoy visiting and hearing about things from home. I’m glad he is being recognized for his work.
