I had Mr Quish back in the 70's. He was the best teacher at Santa Sabina. Mr. Quish was way ahead of his time with his teaching skills. Mr Quish looked for the good in his students. He did NOT fight w

I had Mr. Quish when I was in school back in the 1970's. Good to see him still going. Does he still talk about the next ice age as though it's goin to happen next year?? He should sell some of that 'twinkle' in his eye to other teachers

Lets just say that Quishy was all about "educating the individual", not just teaching a subject. Loved the sunny days were we sat out in the courtyard for our class, or looking at clouds in the orchard. Ooh, and who could forget the Burren trip (Car Stereo/Karst Area)... good times, good times.
