    Mr. Rudd was my favorite and most inspirational teacher. He made a difference. May his family be comforted by having spent many years with such a special person.

    The world has lost an amazing man. Few could inspire so many young minds over such a vast period of time. Feels like yesterday I was sitting in class listening in amazement to a teacher who spoke to us as if we were adults and challenged us to question the lesson plan, to ask why? To ask how? My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Thank you Mr. Rudd!
