I want to be like Sensei Riehle's student!
Right. Well. If you're going to sing my praises - or even my student's - like that, I have to point out that this boy had three other teachers as well as me. He happened to be my student at the time. My predecessor had him longer than I did. My two successors had him even longer, including Tadhg Bird, who you'll see piping up around here on occasion.

I'd love to say it was my instruction that made all the difference. It might even be true. But I ain't saying it is, 'cause I just don't know.

In any case, here's the e-mail his mother sent to the school about the incident: Gregorio's Story
