“Keeping in Touch with Mr. B”


If you had me as a teacher at Newtown Middle, CR North, or Holland Middle, I invite you to contact me by email with an update about your life.

In teaching and coaching, I have the privilege of involvement in so many lives. The sad part of that is that the involvement is for such a short time. We share a year or two together and then move on. It would please me greatly to be informed of the paths and directions that life has taken you.

Below are some prompts if you are not sure what I would like to hear about. Please include a recent picture if you don’t mind. Remind me of the year you were in my class or at least the year you graduated high school. Life is made up of “good”and “bad” so please don’t hold back. And remember, if I can be of any help to you , just ask.

1.      Where are you now?

2.      What are you doing now? Career, school, travels, family, etc.

3.      Tell me what you remember about your middle school experience.

4.      Tell me something you have learned about yourself since middle school.

5.      Anything else you want to tell me or discuss?

If you writeto me I promise I will write back.
