Mr. Guido taught me Latin 3 in AHS. I beieve he had us translate Virgil's "Aeneid." He would sit at his desk behind the same textbook all of his students had as he picked his next "victim" to read & translate a passage.  I remember one day sitting in the front of the class & I noticed that he had another book hidden under his text. It was the English translation! Cheeky devil!  

No matter, you were a good guy & you were good to us. Farewell teacher.
