Welcome to the site Christine!

It is with GREAT sadness that both myself and my husband see the notice of Glenn Belmont!  We were literally talking about her 4 days ago with my husband's grown daughter who remembers her when she was a child.  You see, not only was Glenn a great friend but she was friend to the MATOS family for many years.  My husband worked with Glenn's husband for a while.  Glenn was also my (Josefina Matos') PE teacher while at Mastbaum.  What a wonderful human being, always there for her students, always ready to talk things out with "the girls" when we had problems, issues or questions about life!  Always the consummate human being, the lover of life and the athlete....heck, she taught me to play volleyball and forgave me when I couldn't hold on to the "rings" during yearly testing because I had just come from allergy desensitizing needles (250 needles in each arm!) because my arms were so sore.  We visited her home, talked for hours and my husband was so much a part of their lives, as they were his.  RIP our dear Glenn.  It saddens us to hear this almost just "one month" from your passing. We live in Florida but would have sent our eldest daughter to represent the Matos family at services as she's still in Phila.

Always sharp and beautiful. I remember Sylvia well.  I was class of 1971...just now deciding to join the Mastbaum website.  My condolences to the family!

I never forget the day I had to make a speech in front of everyone in the auditorium to run for Class President.  I bombed. I got such stage frieght, everyone started laughing and I stormed off the stage (exit left!)... needless to say I didn't run that year..... i went outside and sat on the curb (corner of Clementine St!) crying.  All of a sudden I feel an arm over my shoulder and sitting "next" to me ON THE CURB no less was Mr. Sussman.  He assured me it would be ok and that next year I should run and win.  I told him (between sobs) that I couldn't go back in class because I was so embarassed and he gave me permission to call someone to come get me and I could leave early.  What a HUMAN being! I will never, ever forget his kindness.  The following year, 1971, I made my speech, ran for president of the graduating class and won.  Thank you Mr. Sussman for believing in me.

My favorite favorite class !  So much so that in my first year out of High School I opened up a Typing Business doing term papers and resumes for students at Temple Univ and elsewhere.  Back in the day, I entered the worlds fastest typist event every year in the hopes that my 80 wpm on a manual with NO mistakes would allow me to win but I always got beat by a data entry person -- granted, that's what they did for a living, type type type type, asdf,, etc.  To this day typing is my favorite thing to do!  Thank you Mr. Sapp!

Always a gentlemen. Taught history as though he lived it and 'that's' what helped me remember everything I had to, in order to pass the tests!  I'd role-play which led to many future jobs in the 'training arena' where role-playing was a necessary thing to do to understand the material and remember it!  He, like many others, are the ones that made their mark on us as young people coming up in the ranks.  WE are now in our mid 60's.  The baby boomers with so much gratitude to so many great teachers we had at Mastbaum.
