Tomas Gutierrez Perez (the smiling guy wearing tie at the back) is our favourite professor in Term 1. He teaches Quantity Analysis and was named “Solver” when he plays football with the students. I have never seen such a dedicated teacher who has a full-time job but goes so much of his way to help students. He gave review session before every exam (twice on Sat. evenings) and he spent time to talk to us individually after the 1st exam if we wanted to review marks.
On Christmas Eve, we received this email from him:

After sleeping more than 10 hours, and not having to teach on a Saturday evening I was about to sit with the family to have dinner when I realized I had forgotten something.
Using the expression my mother has used during the more than 30 years she has been a teacher, I forgot to wish Merry Christmas to “My Kids”.
So here I am in front of the computer, sending just a few lines to wish you a great night and a great dinner with your families and enjoy these days of relax and peace with your loved ones.
It was a pleasure to have you “in front” in class and sure it will be a pleasure to have you “beside” in the BOTW during a 2006 that I’m sure, for most of you is going to be a year that will change your life’s in a way you are not able to realize right now.
Best wishes to all of you and your families, from the “Forget about Excel” teacher.
