All professors have a pet peeve that can produce stern warning or even requests to leave a classroom. However, Professor Danny Lloyd may have the most unique. In his anatomy and physiology class at a community college, he will flunk anyone who asks about Stanley Kubricks “The Shining.” It turns out that Lloyd played the creepy kid, Danny Torrence, in the movie.
I just ran across this story. I suppose it does get old to be asked over and over again. However, he was a great little actor in the cult classic.
Lloyd taught in Elizabethtown, Kentucky and is now teaching in Missouri at Metropolitan Community College-Penn Valley.
I am delighted that Lloyd has pursued a science teaching career. He obviously has brains to match his talents.
It also appears that he has become a bit more expansive in his speech since his troubled youth . . .
