Poor Mr. McQuade had me as a math student. He tutored me numerous hours after school . He was so patient and so kind. After all of his effort and work, I think I squeezed out of his class with a generous C. He suggested in a very nice way that I might want to stay away from a major that required a lot of math classes in college. He will be happy to know I did get a BS degree in interior design which happened to have a lot of math! It finally clicked. You were a great teacher who always encouraged with a smile. Congratulations on your retirement.
