Mr. Z,
What can I say you are a great guy and teacher. Not only did you teach me math, but you taught me how to fend for myself and get the job done. I'm 25 year old now and still remember the day I walked into your class at Byrndale and was scared sh**less haha, and you know what I also remember the day walked into your class at Bowsher and again sh**less, but this time I had a smile on my face I knew I would learn much more then math. I got to say thats what made me who I am now, you forced me to take that extra step and work harder, you made me a problem sovler. Anyone can just teach the what the book says, but how you taught it made all the differance. For all those out there that says you were not a good teacher they are wrong, those individuals are not good pupils. I'm sure you would be proud to know I graduated from UT with my BA in Urban Planning and Urban Design, and my Master's in Urban Planning and Urban Design. I work now as a City Planner for Bedford Township in MI. I will always thank you for that, you were by far the best teacher I have ever had in my life.

P.S- DINDYAL!!!!!!!!!! Where's your homework.

Mr. Z is certainly the most memorable teacher in my educational history. You almost never knew what to expect from him when you walked into his classroom, but you did know that you'd be given respect, numbers would be referred to as "bones" and you'd learn a lot about math. I was in his math classroom in junior high and for more than half of high school. It's too bad that the next generation of students will miss out on Mr. Z and "joey", his belly! You'll be missed, Mr. Z!

Mr Z.,
You will be missed dearly and you were a great teacher. I remember a lot from both schools. I just wish I could go back to high school and redo it. LOL. But you will be greatly missed by all of us. The kids you had in your classes.

Good ole Z-MAN -- always had a whale of a tale to tell -- I miss your jokes -- your laughter and your humor and your singing. You made ANDRE's "rock" when you were working. Now you're back with the DOD-STER again. May you rest in peace! My thoughts and prayers to your family and friends. Thanks for all the good times and memories!!
