A Great Teacher Remembered

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Craig Zetterberg. He was one of those special teachers you hear about. My daughter won the lottery the day that mans name appeared on her schedule in her sophomore year. Courtney was never an “A” student. She was capable but uninterested and each year at Nevada Union High school, one or two teachers would see passed the indifference and challenge her. Mr. Zetterberg was that teacher in 10th grade. He made her care. He went over and above. He helped her get through. I know she was not the only student who adored him and I know he will be sorely missed. My heart and prayers go out to his family.
