    My condolences to Ronda and the Family. Paul and I worked together in SD170. His office was right next door to mine. Paul was such a wonderful teacher and an amazing man. He will be missed by all who knew him.

    Our deepest condolences to the family.  I taught with Paul for many years at Lincoln School.  He worked for my husband for a couple years.  He was a great teacher and good friend.  We have many fond memories!
