Earlier this month, schools and communities around the country observed Teacher Appreciation Day.
Whenever I hear about a day such as this one or about educators who leave a lasting impact on students, my mind always turns to Mr. Bond and Ms. Foulds of good old Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School at the corner of Fifth and Sydney streets.
And for much different reasons.
Mr. Bond was a slender man, with thick black framed glasses who smoked a lot. He cared about all of his students, it seemed, even me.
