It is always sad when someone very young dies. I taught Josh for Computing during my Teaching Experience placement at Saint Pats late 2010. I recall him as cheeky in a good way, confident, rugby focused and friendly. Not sure how I feel about his death, but it has been cause for reflection on the fragility of life. I guess, given the number of young people who teachers meet that inevitably you hear of tragic and untimely deaths… hopefully not too often.
He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.John Cotton Dana (1856–1929)
