The trees out in front of the building are exploding with gorgeous flowers. Just reminded me of Geoff. Hope you're doing well!

I feel incredibly lucky to have had Geoff as a friend and mentor here at GLEF for more than six years. He always made time for a technical newbie; and with his patient encouragement, I've connected much more deeply with our web team and gained an understanding of how it all works behind the scenes.

I'm grateful for his sense of humor, his kindness, and his passion for his work.

I will miss working with him tremendously!

Thank you

I am fortunate beyond words to be able to call Geoff my mentor. I greatly appreciate the values he has instilled in me. Thank you, Geoff, for being such a wonderful teacher, always thinking long term, and keeping things on track.

Geoff has been our resident sage. He is a fountain of info of all things technical, (not to mention cultural) and possesses an amazing inner calm in the face of a storm. Unlike so many technical people who dismiss any questions with a blanket "It's technical" response, Geoff thrives on sharing his wisdom, helping others understand the hows and whys.

We'll miss you, friend!

Geoff - truly an honor to work with you. In the words of David Markus, you have accomplished what most people dream to. 17 years of creating, building, and constantly improving edutopia.org. Well done. See you in P-town - Elana.

Geoff has been a constant and dedicated and beloved and AWESOME part of the Edutopia family and we are surely going to miss him. Our team regularly *channels* Geoff (What would Geoff do?) whenever we need to gut-check our decisions so we stay the course and do the right thing for our audience. He is completely sincere when he heaps accolades onto teachers, and it's probably because he is himself a teacher at heart and truly respects the craft of passing along knowledge. I've learned so much from him... and the people who get to work with him next are certainly going to know how lucky they are.
