And did he teach

Gold CAnyon, AZ & Santa Cruz, CA

Louis Rubidoux made a commitment to dedicate himself to teaching young people. And he delivered big time. I was fortunate to have Mr. Rubidoux as my 8th grade homeroom teacher in a good size junior high in Arlington Heights, IL. That was1957-1958. While I didn't have a complete appreciation of him as a young kid it was easy to recognize that he was a dedicated and effective teacher. It wasn't until I had the experience of high school, college, military, and corporate trainings that he was the best and most complete teacher I ever had. I also recall Mr. Rubidoux coaching and officiating girls basketball. Odd as it is I became an accomplished umpire of women's fastpitch softball at the tournament, high school, and college level. In retirement I am still a full time sports official. Even though I was a brat and a punk I believe Mr. Rubidoux would have been a great friend if I had connected with him as an adult. My loss but still a terrific memory of an awesome teacher who was a good man. Ralph Law
