In 2009, my husband Jim (aka Pops) retired from teaching at Cherrywood Elementary School where he was a teacher for 36 years. He taught many students whose parents were in his class and 5 teachers in his district were also former students of his.

During his teaching career at Cherrywood, he was featured many times in the San Jose Mercury, San Francisco Chronicle and other local papers for his innovative teaching programs and methods, his chess and his African dance and drum programs.

It inspires me and makes me very proud to share these articles here with you.

I’m adding a link to this one, written by an ex-student, Jeff Glass, on February 10, 2017 – Thank You Mr. Hunter.

    Hello,

    Is there any way we can email Mr. Hunter? I have a story that I would like to share with him about my brother who was in his 4th grade class over 20 years ago.
