Mr. Savatgy - I've been wanting to get in touch with him for years. I am 28 years old, he was my teacher, gosh, 18 years ago. And one of my favorites, and most influential. I remember the chess, I remember learning from him that it's okay to be different, and I remember one hard day where there was a class discussion about someone who had been picked on, and I was one of the culprits. Sure, we say "kids can be so mean," but we are not opposed to learning, and that day I learned a lot. Thanks, George! You and Jan MacDougal have caused some good grown-ups in this world!

Mr. Savatgy was a horrible teacher and 5th grade was one of the worst years of my life- I'm glad he's out of the system. He liked only the kids who were easy to like. He put me to sleep in class and I was a kid who always loved to learn.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
