We were very proud to mention that someone from our area won NYS Teacher Of The Year. His name is Charlie Giglio, a Latin teacher from Gloversville High School.  Of course, I thought his name was pronounced differently, so I went with the most obvious song for this wonderful educator.

We actually got him on the air this morning.  Here's the audio, with song included.

Gloversville High School

We applaud Mr. Giglio who came out of retirement to fill the need in the school for a Latin teacher. Having taken Latin in school, I really feel that everyone should be exposed to it. Even to this day when I see a "big word," you can usually find something in it with a Latin derivative that helps you figure it out.

Thanks for keeping Latin alive, Mr. Giglio!
