    As I sat this evening helping my Sophomore son, I told him about the best math teacher that I ever had. John Waterman taught me math, I joined his Math Club & tutored in the math office. In one year he fostered a lifelong love of math, and his legacy continues to future generations. I’m now a CEO in San Francisco, and this evening learn for the first time of John’s passing. I honor his passion for teaching.
