I was shocked and saddened to hear of Dr Nathan's passing. As a former student and TA with Dr Nathan, he was a true inspiration and educator in every sense of the word, and he inspired me and lit a fire in me to be the best I could as I followed his footsteps into becoming an English teacher myself. His love of Shakespeare and William Blake have transferred to me and I will never forget all he taught me, and I truly hope I am at least half as good an instructor as he was. His memory will live in forever in those whose lives he touched, and I hope his family will find comfort knowing he has impacted so many lives in such a positive way. Blessings to all.
