Happy Spring! I hope you and your family are well. This year, the 67 LaSalle students and 7 LaSalle teachers have had a more normal year for the first time since March 2020. We have been in person five days a week since September and recently moved to masks optional. Students and teachers are happy to be back together.
If I had to chose one teacher that had a profound impact on me at The Hall, it would have to be Mr. Stephen Lavezza. He was my English Literature teacher; I was in his home room, and he started the photography club. In all instances, he just made learning fun. His lectures were stuff of legend: dressing up as King Arthur, playing songs like “American Pie” and “Piano Man” to illustrate how to tell a story. He was all about capturing the audience, of making them want to hang on every word. I loved how he could have a conversation with a single student or 300 students, and it was exactly the same…we hung on every last word. He showed me the power of words and conversation and he helped develop my love of capturing an image. Calvert Hall is full of teachers like him and that’s one of the many reasons why it’s such a special place.

Below is a short poem that I wrote while reminiscing about my days at old Calvert Hall. I'm quite sure Brother Daniel, my old English teacher, would not consider it a literary masterpiece and would also probably have something to say about the grammar and syntax. This is just part of the sentimental journey I have been taking when recalling my bygone days at The Hall. I thought that some of the old timers in the Alumni Association might feel the same way and enjoy reading it.
