Mr. Gillespie, now deceased, taught high school English in the 90’s and was my best teacher ever. He loved everything William Faulkner (he even looked like him), ran 6 miles most days, and wouldn’t let students use any form of the verb “to be” in their writing. He molded hundreds, maybe thousands, of students into excellent communicators and is the reason I was an English major in college. He was the very best and so passionate about his work!
