Thank you Mr. Ritchie

Marin Catholic’s, my alma mater, principal is retiring after 37 years at the school.  He’s not riding off into the sunset, he’s going to be spending his time fighting pancreatic cancer. That is after he runs in the Dipsea.

Read about Mr. Ritchie here.

He’s the kind of educator that every school needs, he gets things done, he cares about the kids and he makes learning fun.  I wish there was a video somewhere of his Dr. Digesto character.

To give an example of what kind of guy he is, when asked if they may name a building after him, he replies:

“I’m not big on buildings. I really hope they don’t name anything after me,” Ritchie said.

“Maybe a doorway somewhere, that’s it.”
