Joel was a teacher of mine before he was a teacher by his profession. He taught me to ask questions and the status qoe. He was influential on expanding my mind on music, history, politcs, and people. He was very supportive in my decision to join the marines and told me that we need more marines like me to represent our way of life. I can't believe he is gone because he was always a spark of life. I only wish o found away to to have more time with him over the last few years. RIP and thank you.
RIP. You were simply the best. You are someone who made a huge impact on the person I grew up to be. You were the most genuine teacher I ever had. Hope one day my children get to experience the same kind of education you provided me with. You will forever be cherished in my heart. Love you.
