Mrs. Carr also fueled my interest in music. Once a week she would let us bring records from home to school and play them for the class. I was introduced to the Beatles, Herman’s Hermits and countless other rock bands of the day sitting in Mrs. Carr’s classroom.

Last week was a tough one for me. By Friday I had no idea what I would write about this week.

They nominated me for scholarships I didn’t even know about, ensuring I had money for books, and counseled me pretty much every step of the way. When I had no car and was living in a studio apartment I could barely afford, they arranged for a classmate to give me a ride to school on days when our schedules were similar.

My next two teachers were equally important to me. Mrs. Arone (many of my schoolmates claimed her husband’s name was Mac, but that could be urban legend) was a fabulous teacher. I credit her for heightening my awareness of and interest in current events and history. Coincidentally, she tearfully broke the news to us of President Kennedy’s assassination.

My best teacher in high school was my freshman math teacher, Jerry Quiller, who also was our cross country coach. He would go on to coach cross country at the University of Colorado, Army, Wayne State and a couple of other colleges. He died in 2012. If Coach Quiller had stayed a second year at my high school I am convinced he would have had half the kids in the school running cross country. He was that charismatic.

So now you know a little bit about me and my life, but more importantly you know about some of the teachers who made a difference in it.

One of Mrs. Condon’s most memorable assignments was pairing us in teams of two and having us figure out where we would go and what we would do with a particular amount of money. My partner Gary and I decided we were heading to Monaco, so we called a travel agent and got the scoop on airfare, hotel, things to do and total costs. Naturally, our money was going to run out quickly in Europe unless we figured out a way to make it grow. I decided the best way to do that was at the roulette and baccarat tables, which tickled Mrs. Condon to no end. It also allowed us to extend the assignment for weeks. We wrote a daily report of how gambling winnings fueled our exploits and travels all over Europe.

It is my hope that teachers are still striving to make a difference in their students’ lives, every bit as much as many of mine did.
