I’ll never forget asking Mr. Vohs how he could spend his life doing something so boring. He replied emphatically, “I love it, this is my life’s work.” Most people would have been insulted but he took the opportunity to create a teachable moment. To spend your life being passionate and interested in anything, even when others find it boring, is a a great gift.

Sitting with my 10th grader telling him about Mr Vohs and how he made geometry come alive. His excitement when he used colored chalk created enthusiasm for all of us. In googling him to find out how to reach him I saw this sad news. I wish all teachers were as memorable as Mr Vohs!
