Who were your favorite Puget Sound faculty and/or staff? What made them your favorite?

 "Bill Baarsma, Kate Stirling for each of their passion for their students." -Dani Stang '90

"Dr. Paul Schultz: an amazing person that helped me understand more than just academics. Rabbi Rosenthal: a long time family friend whom I had known for years was my Religion professor. Loved that class. Dr. Block: Just an amazing person that kept things interesting." -Jeff Johnson '90

"Kathy Hummelberry, Phd, PT, Lynn Chandler, Phd, PT." -Laura Hansen MPT '90

"Alan Thorndike and Andy Rex. They were patient teachers who taught me how to solve complex problems, and I carried all of those lessons into my work life." -Dan Morseburg '90

"Mike Veseth- He made economics fun. He has a great sense of humor and was always willing to help." -Rebecca Wilder '90

"Michel Rocci taught "Islamic Tradition" in 1989 which was a fascinating class that taught me about armchair geography and how other cultures can be painted to be villains. One of my favorite days was when Professor Rocci had our Arab international students sit in the front of the room and we could ask them any questions we had about their culture. There were a lot of laughs, and it drew all of us closer together as humans having a shared experience. Understanding prevailed and walls started coming down within our own classroom. Everything about that class was enlightening, and it helped form my views and attitudes about embracing differences and multicultural communities. Flash forward 15 years later, my favorite international trip was going to Egypt and spending quality time with the wonderful people in the region." -Julie Gates '90

"Dr. Douglas Cannon. Very intelligent." -Roy Hurd '90

"Dr. Barry Anton - I loved his style of teaching. Beverly Connor - was very warm and approachable. Anne Wood - made chemistry understandable. There was also some teachers I loved, but I'm not recalling their names.....one taught religion, one taught genetics, and there were a couple more in the psychology dept that I liked." -Virginia Carter '90
