From page A15 | August 25, 2013 | 1 Comment

Shanmei Kuang

student, Davis:

“Miss Marfia, now Marfia-Rosa. I had her for sophomore English and senior English. She taught me how to organize my writing, she challenged me to think about issues beyond my immediate circumstances; she made me think beyond myself and how to put it into words.”

Whitney Welker

student, Davis:

“Dr. Shafraff. He was just very entertaining. He knew a lot about his subject and was very passionate.”

Dale Shaw

retired, Sacramento:

“My favorite teacher, she was a vocabulary teacher at Miami High School, 1957. She was great.”

Jim Shaw

semi-retired health care consultant, Sacramento:

“I have two. The first one was Mabel Sales. She was my English teacher in high school, Redlands High School. Just the beauty of the words. The second was Mr. Hubbard, who taught Shakespeare, English lit, and he lived the parts, the roles, in class.”

Mat Talton

student, Davis:

“He was a visiting professor for math, for fall quarter 2011, and he taught Math 12. He was my favorite professor because he was able to explain these mathematical terms in layman terms; if you couldn’t make his office hours, he was willing to work around your schedule. I had an emergency that had me stranded in L.A., and I was going to miss the midterm, and he gave me an alternate midterm, instead of just failing me.”

Wendy Vasseur

soap maker, Davis:

“It was Mrs. Nelson, fourth grade, because she was kind, and patient, explained clearly, and she would have little parties at her house and invite her students.”
