Our condolences and deepest sympathies to the family & friends of longtime Woodstock Collegiate Institute music teacher Brad Masters, who has died after a courageous battle with cancer. His memorial service was today, and he’s in our thoughts.
With Mr. Masters in our thoughts, yesterday we asked you on Facebook to name the best teacher you’ve ever had.
Shanyn Rose wrote “Mrs J. Seggewiss & Ian Cunningham”.
Our buddy Jim McCoomb said “Mr. Rendall, urban geography teacher at Westminster Secondary School in the late 70’s. Sparked my interest in urban planning. Never had the chance to tell him that it was his influence that set me on my career path.”.
Seannie Laumor noted “Ms. Poag, senior kindergarten in Bothwell On. Ms. Butler (Peri) grade 6 Aylmer On. Greatest teachers for children I experienced. And Mr. Oneil and Mrs. Manfredi for multiple years in highschool in St. Thomas ON. These two impacted my adult life something fierce.”.
