Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Mr. Pelloshok was my grade 7 math teacher at Isaac Newton School. My best friend and I used to meet him every morning at 7:30 to do extra math. He made math fun and we just loved being around him. I have no doubt he touched many, many, many students' lives in such a very positive way - including mine. It is memories like these that guide me in my own work with my students. - Posted by: Colleen Anne Dell (Student) on: Sep 05, 2013
