no news...just a hello!|
I stumbled upon this site and scrolled through the years of postings. I was JUST talking about Mr. Cesta (8th grade Social Studies, Bell School) tonight (after getting the link to the great Mr. Barlow book site).....and I learned here that he had passed away last year. Mr. Cesta was one of those amazing teachers that one never forgets. I wished that I had taken the time to tell him what an impact he had on me. He was college professor caliber. "Keep your wits about you!" I can just hear his voice saying that to a student as he or she was stumbling trying to get a sentence out. The energy that Mr. Cesta had as he dragged our 'team' all over Washington DC was incredible. He had such enthusiasm in the classroom - wherever that classroom happened to be.
Thanks to Michael Cesta for posting about his father's death. Mr. Cesta's 8th-grade Social Studies course was the most fun course I've ever taken, and it has stayed with me ever since. Mr. Cesta was learned, compelling, and kind. I teach in law school now, and often ask myself "What would Mr. Cesta do?"
