Educator Celebrated for 50 Years of Teaching

Posted:

It's a special year for one teacher at Mott Regent High School.

"Every day starts the same way...

James Glasser has had a passion for science ever since he was little.

"Always, always," says James Glasser, High School Chemistry and Physics Teacher.

This passion led him to being a Chemistry and Physics teacher at Mott Regent High School.

"I love it. I wouldn't do anything else," says Glasser.

And his reputation that certainly precedes himself.

"I had heard so many good things about Mr. Glasser so I was like okay you know I'll take the class and now I know and can talk about so much more with people about physics and chemistry that I never could before," says Cassandra Johnson, Senior.

"He makes them easy to understand and fun and so we can use them later on in the future and our everyday lives," says Jaycie Honeyman, Senior.

"I think I can go to college with a lot more ease in the scientific areas knowing that he's prepared me for everything I need to know," says Alyssa Olin, Senior.

"They say that those who can't do, teach. But Mr. Glasser proves this statement wrong. Today he is celebrating 50 years of dedication to education."

Amidst the chanting, applause, and tears...

Mr. Glasser wears a humble smile.

"They bring the excitement to class. They give me the opportunity to try and explain something," says Glasser.

Even his parents and brother were there to witness this proud moment.

"It's a real good feeling," says Dan, Mr. Glasser's Father.

Despite a half a century of teaching under his belt, retirement is no where in sight.

"There's no reason to quit. As long as your kids are willing to learn from you and you can enjoy their presence ..well..there's just nothing else to do. If the school wanted me, I could go another 10," says Glasser.

The ceremony was very emotional for Mr. Glasser's family.

Both of his parents are in their 90s.
