I am grateful for Mr. Tom DiGanci, my social studies and history teacher at Watchung Hills Regional High School.
He taught me that there was a world out there much larger than the one I could see.
He taught me that history was alive, and encouraged me to take my place in it.
He knew that we had to be engaged in order to learn.
He played Moody Blues records on a beat up school record player before class.
And he always had time to listen.
Thank you, Mr. DiGanci.
And thanks, Christopher Danielson.
