Ms. Karen (Gunn) Pugh

I’m sure you have received many condolences for being my 8th Grade science teacher, which, I know, was a rough gig.   You said to me once, “You’re the kind of person that can be anything he chooses to be.” In my adolescent world, where positive reinforcement was a rare commodity at best, you can never know how precious those words were to me, or how they sustained me through the years.  Sorry I was such a disciplinary nightmare in your class, but I’m sure you know all too well, how adolescent boys are when they have crushes on the cute new science teacher.
