    So many thoughtful, interesting points made by mr. Human, but he read his text so rapidly that all I wanted to do was to ask him to breathe so that I could give his words their proper due…

    I am very impressed with my son’s commentary. He is an excellent teacher and a remarkable person and is dedicated to his profession. My hope is that he will be able to continue to provide the necessary teaching tools for his students in these times of economic distress. He exudes the love for his profession and family! That makes him VERY SPECIAL!!

    Well said! I echo what Mark has so passionately and eloquently expressed. It is a shame that what is heard and seen in the public media is usually the ugly stories–which are so few– instead of stories like Mark’s story–which truly depicts the hearts of most teachers. Thank you, Mark and CMF.
