I had Mr. Dawydiak in the mid seventies. I rather liked him. I was in his homeroom at that time it was room 217. Also for social studies my last year. I had forgotten the tango/foxtrot etc methods he used, all comes flooding back now. I do remember when he would point to something on a map or board he would always use his middle finger, which of course was a great source of fun for junior high school kids. Now looking back I wonder if he was just trying to tell us something.
