A terrific group of gentleman many of whom played a significant role in my life: Bud, you taught me English grammar, history, and modeled perfect penmanship at Freeman School ... you also, probably in connection with my father, taught me not to be a quitter; Bill W., you were a terrific inspiration and helped me realize success in academia; Herb, you taught me how to be physically tough on the inside, something I've needed quite often in my life; Frankie (God Bless You), you were a great friend of my brother, my mom, and me ... I loved watching you toss hoops and fish the Deerfield ... some of my greatest moments in learning came from eavesdropping on your conversations with my brother( I hope you and Bruce have hooked up in Heaven and are bringing home those rainbows); Bill M., my brother always referred to you when I asked him how he got so good at baseball ... he told me you used to take him out to the field at Freeman and hit him grounders, you obviously did a great job; Tom M., well what can i say, you moved me to 3rd base and it made all the difference in the world ... thank you for being my best coach and leading us to the 'states'( oh, and thanks for acquiescing on those laps you were going to make me run after the Mt Greylock game for being 5 minutes late getting to Noel field that day:);Bob Kove, so many times in the past few years I have started a letter to you, perhaps you will read this and know YOU have had the biggest impact on my life...i entered your geometry class as a naive, floundering, underachieving junior ... my only aspirations were connected to sports ... you help me achieve and see success in myself somewhere other than on the ball field ... it was your style, your interactive, patient style that became a part of me; I modeled it when first walked into a classroom and I worked on perfecting it as the years past; it has helped me become tremendously successful throughout my career ... to me you were a modest, humble man with grace ... somehow I always felt you gave me special attention because my father had past away, maybe you did ... but I know now that as a teacher when you touch another's life that that student will always think the teacher thought he was special ... when we are asked, "Who are the teachers you remember making a difference in your life?" your name is first and foremost on that short list. Thank you, Mr. Kove, for making all the difference in my world! You shall always be My Teacher of the Year.
