“The students that would have been in his class will miss out on the unique method of teaching and his love for learning,” junior Erik Hotchkiss said.

“The feeling I get with Mr. Patheal is that he desires students to come and ask questions,” Park said. “That is the most satisfying feeling as a student.”
