I will always remember Dr. Slater, in the 1970s, dressing up as a disheveled professor and acting out his comic sketch during mid-morning assembly. He also would read the story about a haunted house on Brickyard Road in Woodstock, CT. The book was called Gothic Ghosts and was then located in the Rectory library.

Thomas Neal '83

I would like to share a memory of a tutor I had at Rectory School somewhere between 1980 and 1982, Mr. Wallace. He not only helped me in my academics, but he treated me with dignity. He made me believe I was loved, and that I was greater than my failures — able to be better and do better. He treated me like I was family. I searched to find him to write him a letter back in 2011, and Mr. Seaward kindly helped me get leads that eventually led me to him. My subject heading on the letter was, “From all F’s to a PhD.” That’s the power of education, of a teacher, and the power of an institution that creates the conditions where a student can move out of depression and stagnation to advance forward into a future full of hope. I’m exceedingly grateful to Rectory School for that gift. And most of all to Mr. Wallace. God bless him and all of you in the good work you continue to do.
