I thought I had already posted this, sorry if it is a duplicate.
Me. DelVero was the best educator I think I ever had - even through graduate school. I had lived all over the world before going to Seaholm and I graduated from there in 1979. I remember video type memories of people and things, that had significant meaning in my life. I can see myself walking up to the front of the room, to his desk, to debate my grade on a paper, with Mr. DelVero (he encouraged us to do that). Just that process taught me more about critical thinking than anything else in high school - even FLEX. We had to have a good argument - sometimes I think he gave us slightly lower grades to teach us to stand up for our work! He nurtured and challenged our minds and we always knew he cared. I spent a lot of time just talking to him as I was fresh from England when I started at Seaholm. He was always approachable, kind and encouraging. I tell my colleagues in Oakland, Ca., about him.
As a teacher I like to think I take the best of my former teachers with me, into the classroom. I learned a tremendous amount about how to be an effective teacher from Mr. DelVero. I wish I had thanked him as an adult.
As a society we need more role models like him in classrooms.
He lives in the memories of so many of us that had the privilege of being his students and his impact on many of us, especially those of us that became educators, is reflected in our work.
Sincerely,

Mr. Del Vero was the best teacher I ever had. His approach was to motivate his students to think for themselves and seek solutions beyond the simple, superficial, and readily apparent ones. He inspired me to be better, although at the time of my high school years I did not fully appreciate him as he deserved. It was a true privilege to have him a my instructor and later to know him as a friend. I will always remember him and be grateful to him.

As many of his former students have noted here,
Mr. Delvero's words remain with you over the decades.
My daughter just started her freshman year at U of M, & last week end I thought, Wait! I know I told her
Time Dims A Memory (people), (so write it down)
but have I also told her
You Can Party On Friday Night, Or You Can Party On Saturday Night, But You Can't Party On Friday AND Saturday Nights?
Words Mr. Delvero shared with us as graduating Seniors at Seaholm, & we laughed about - & remembered sometimes - in college.
Mr. Delvero's wisdom was not limited strictly to his amazing command of Modern European History, & his example of kindness, good humor & always setting the bar high will carry on.
Thank you, Mr. Delvero.
