Frank DeMarco was an inspiration not only to me, but to a generation of students who shared his daily knowledge and quips. He inspired me to become a teacher too---however, it was not in Biology, which was his specialty. Mr. DeMarco taught all of us life lessons which went beyond any classroom walls. And for that I will be forever grateful. He understood the need for compassion and for making each student feel capable. His light humor kept an otherwise difficult subject from becoming either impossible or boring. It may have been over 40 years ago that he lit a fire for learning and teaching in the minds of Green High students, but the memories of his dedication will carry me and my classmates long into the future.
