I have fond memories of Miss Waite and Mr Gladwell as respected teachers at Beck and as a lovely couple who I encountered numerous times over the years around the city. A lyric from a favorite Beck anthem comes to mind... "No man is an island, no man stands alone, each man's joy is to me, each man's grief is my own". All Beck alumni share your grief Mr. Gladwell.

Dear Mr Gladwell
It is with sadness that we read of Mrs. Gladwell's passing. Dedicated teachers are a precious gift. Sympathy to you and your daughter on your loss.

Shirley (yes, we called her Shirley quite often, even in class) was possibly my favourite high school teacher. She was my home room teacher, 11A, and I have often thought of her over the years. Her classes were never boring and often a lot of fun. The fun was generally not related to the work but maybe that's what made it exciting to be in her class. The fun never got in the way of my learning; in fact, I think it helped. It's sad that she's gone.

Shirley was a superb teacher. In grade 10 at Beck, dressed impeccably in red sweater and skirt, black stilleto heels, she took me aside after class to reflect poignantly that I could be a far better student, certainly a higher achiever. She did so with class and dignity and it was a kindness I never forgot.

I did not know Shirley, but I am sure Robert Gladwell was a history teacher of mine at Wheable S.S. in the late 1960's. My condolences.

My late wife Sharon would want me to say how very much she appreciated Shirley's professionalism, her support and her friendship. We have all lost a valued colleague and Federation member.

Hi Robert. I had Shirley as a teacher at Beck and a colleague at Laurier.or Montcalm. She was always happy and positive and a lot of fun....and a credit to the teaching profession. She will be missed.
