On the far left is my former high school counselor, who was receiving an award for his decades of service as a teacher and counselor. He started teaching math in 1957 and still works at the independent learning high school.
In the center is my former high school principal.
When I started teaching--16 years ago!--they took me to breakfast one morning and gave me lots of advice. One thing Mr. Nelson, the principal, told me was that I should give a quiz each week so students know where they stand in their understanding of the material. So if you're a former student of mine and hated having quizzes each Friday, blame it on some excellent advice I was given by someone who knew what he was talking about.
