Parkman taught me English over 35 years ago and I went on to major in English in college. He was and is my favorite teacher, a real gentleman and scholar, an inspiring and inspired teacher. I particularly remember "The Crucible," wherein bizarrely rigid public standards of behavior allow the persecutorial madness of the community and its moralist judges to trump common sense and decency. Fortunately, one character tells the truth and, although convicted by the persecutors, keep his good name.

As a former student of his from thirty years ago, I would like to give Parkman Howe my warmest regards, in light of recent news. In my junior year, he was my English teacher, my adviser and my mentor, and he helped shape my writing skills in ways that no other teacher of mine had before or would since. I remember him as a warm, funny person who treated me with respect, and I will always be indebted to him. It breaks my heart to hear how his career at Concord Academy came to end.

I took multiple classes from Mr. Howe back in the day and I can say from the vantage point of several decades that he was the best English teacher I had at CA or anywhere else.
