OK, I’ll come right out and say it, “Ed Heckman is the finest teacher I have known.”
Enthusiasm, that’s why! I could ramble on about his:
- Mastery of a broad range of highly technical and difficult topics
- Showmanship using exhibits and quality overheads
- Stamina to do eight hours of instruction for weeks on end
- Personality to deal with a room full of engineers (born skeptics)
…but I must come back to his sheer, unabashed, bubble-over enthusiasm when in front of a class. This is an essential trait of all great teachers, and he has it in spades.

In the 26 years I have spent in Nuclear Power, Ed Heckman is easily one of the top three instructors I have ever had. His depth and breadth of knowledge, innovative abilities, and interpersonal skills combine to produce a special blend of talents that result in student learning at an exceptional rate.

never regains its original dimensions.
