Don Rothman's many contributions to UCSC, its students, the community and to my own life will live on forever. He changed the way I saw myself in the world, helped me claim my voice, opened doors to my future as an educator and reminded me to "listen eloquently" to the world around me. May his family find peace and courage at this difficult time.

Not long ago, I saw Don walking near the Santa Cruz Bookstore smiling with family and friends. We both said hello and both smiled--he remembered my face from the countless faces who attended the UCSC Writing Project. He inspired us to change our approach to the teaching of writing, to help us help our teens find purpose, passion and social justice in writing. I will remember him as a most endearing humanistic soul who helped and encouraged so many students and teachers. I thank him for coming into our lives and sharing his vision.

Dear Don Rothman, how was it possible for one man to make so many students feel like they are the most important student in the world? I can't believe you're gone so soon.

Don taught me to view my teaching as a political act, and to see myself as a writer. He also taught me the importances of silent pauses in the classroom, and in life. His gleeful giggle and the twinkle in his eyes will be sorely missed. He will forever be my writing godfather.
