Peter Wells was the first teacher I met when I went to Hopkins in 1965. He was also my Second Form Advisor. Peter was the most invigorating teacher and helpful guide this insecure new boy could possibly have had. I´ve been grateful to him ever since. R. I. P. you great teacher and wonderful man. Thank you with all of my love and respect.

Sorry for your loss, Mr. Wells was an English teacher of highest regard. He took the time with me in my youth to put pen to paper in a concise, organized manner, rest in peace
