Mr. Broisuk, something I failed to tell you and genuinely regret. You were my absolute favorite teacher. Not the best teacher, but the best person. I loved your attitude about life and having high standards- and I honestly recall many of the things you said and have seem them as important things to remember in life.
Your love for classical music, for example, really did inspire me. When I sent on from high school to get a degree in music, I kept things you said in the back of my mind throughout my training. Such a perfect example of how teachers are not always aware of how they impact their students. Thank you.
