Metal Shop Teacher

Metal Shop Teacher

Postby rcpresl » Thu Mar 05, 2009 7:57 pm

I have another question (Bob, I looked this time, and the answer is not on the Rule page)! I had a metal shop teacher in 1956/57 and he was probably there earlier as well. He called all of us "Gentlemen", which we weren't, and he always had a rule that I remember to this day, especially when I get sloppy and don't put tools away as soon as I finish with them. He would always say, "Gentlemen, everything has a place, and everything should be in its place". I know that sounds a bit trivial, but I has helped me remember to be reasonably neat in my habits. I cannot remember his name, and I haven't found him in any of the faculty listings. Maybe I just haven't looked in the right place, but if anyone can remember his name, I'd like to have it. Thanks.
