Emily

Hi Susan,

My name is Emily and Chuck Woodworth (Mr. Woodworth, as he'll always be known to me) was my high school english teacher about a dozen years or so ago. Another of my former teachers just told me that Mr. Woodworth had passed away, and I found your blog post after googling his name. I don't know if he talked much about his teaching experience, but he was an incredible teacher - he harnessed all the disruptive and unruly energy of a too-smart-for-her-own-good kid and channeled it in useful, challenging, interesting ways. He was a wonderful person, as you know, and I will always be grateful to him for taking the time to help me develop my potential instead of writing me off - or sending me to detention. :)

I regret having lost touch with him over the years and I am so glad to read that he seemed to be doing so well, even with his physical ailments. I hope you don't mind my reaching out in this way to write about him, but he affected my life very strongly and I, too, will miss him a great deal.

Kind regards,

Emily
