Primarily taught by his father, who started him on a steady dose of audio-books and reading material by the age of three, educated by a wide variety of mathematical materials and video games as well. Owing much of his literary success to his father, Hal went on to earn a seniors reading level by 3rd grade, and a collegiate reading level by 5th grade.
His mathematical skills developed primarily in elementary school under the tutelage of Jennifer Cross and much of his scientific knowledge and logical processing from Eric Johnston, Jennifer aswell, and Wayne Summers. He excelled in mathematics, reading, and science most of all. Though renowned for excess talking, Hal managed to tighten down a consistent string of A's throughout elementary school, and absorb the strong foundational education provided by his teachers. Those teachers remain in contact to this day.
Middle School/High School
Hal continued his education at Pewamo Westphalia Community schools at the Jr./Sr. High school. Continuing to advance steadily in all areas of the curriculum, Hal made high A's through seventh and eighth grade, developing connections to his teachers through achievement. Chris Wells and Tim Cornman were of particular note. As a freshman, he started out his high-school career with three 4 points, and a 3.952, rounding out to a 3.976 for his freshman year. As a sophomore Hal attained four 4 points, and as a junior, he put down a 4 point and a 3.952. A strong course load with no blow offs, only one art class (freshman year), a placement in the most advanced math available to him, accounting courses, secondary Spanish language courses, and more core classes than recommended filled his days. Hal looks forward to topping this out senior year with several AP classes, advanced core fillers, and dual enrollment to online tech. courses to LCC.
