Dedicated to all my students who passed through and participated in English classes in the Colegio Colombo Hebreo (even if they didn’t study). Especially during the 1980’s, the grand old days of the CCH, And in particular the Class of 1988, who kept me alive during four months in Israel!
And in memory of those who no longer with us:
Dr. Jose Vicente Avella, a master educator, who insisted that I teach at the CCH.
Batia Mikler, who gave her life to the CCH, and was an inspiration to me and many others.
Martha Amaya de Castro, school psychologist, for saving more than one student (and perhaps some teachers) from adolescent trauma.
Isi Wasserman, a fighter who shared all our ups and downs of the Class of ’88.
