It's been almost 20 years since I stepped into his office the first time, probably 15 years since I saw him, and I can still hear his laugh.
Mr W, you were an awesome teacher. Every single one of your students recognized that you loved your work. And we all knew you believed in us.
Good teachers don't learn how to teach by taking education classes. They learn to teach because someone first taught them. Thank you for being one of those great teachers in my life. I hope I can pass that lesson along.
