THREE MORE GIANT LOSSES:
 
Charlie Feeney (English)      Linda Tassano (Math)          Sid Gordon (Music)

Charlie Feeney taught English for many years, inspiring students with his creativity, wisdom, and love of learning. He loved to listen to local bands, dance, and get the most out of life. In high school, Charlie was introduced to the study of poetry and the works of the transcendentalists, primarily Emerson and Thoreau. As he reflected, "My eyes lit up with poetry and my fate was sealed."

Linda Tassano: During her over 40-year career, she taught math at San Jose Middle School and San Marin High School in Novato, and Redwood High School in Larkspur. She once estimated that she likely taught over 7,000 students in her long career. Her favorite thing about her job was that she loved to teach students how to think logically and felt math was the best vehicle.

Sid Gordon was one of the original Redwood teachers… he was a music teacher extraordinaire! His 95th birthday celebration was featured in the Press Democrat just last month. https://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/news/benefield-bandleader-keeps-the-music-going-with-a-little-help-from-his-fri/
