"LORD JESUS TEACH ME TO BE GENEROUS...". One of the best teachers I have ever had in my time at Gonzaga. He is funny, helpful, intelligent, and nice. Although I only ever had him first year Latin, he is one of my favourite teachers. Each day when we went into his classroom we would recite the prayer of Ignatius de Loyola. We knew it in a few weeks. We would mimic his actions while saying the prayer. All around a great guy. "AMEN! PRAISE THE LORD!"

Taught me in the 80's when the prep school was still around. Impossible to forget some of the poems we learned back then - learned out of fear of 'six-of-the-best' - scarred for life!
