After surviving the zombie apocalypse, braving hula hoop seminars, and recovering from rifle recoil, Mr. Hess is taking his bow and gracefully leaving the halls of Mountain Vista Governor’s School to begin his new life with his new bride. The faculty showered our beloved math teacher with gifts only a math geek could appreciate: math cookbooks, pi shaped pizza cutters and ice cube trays, titanium sporks, etc.
A contingent of the faculty and students trekked to Broadway to witness the official ending of the bachelorhood of our young scholar. With the exchanging of vows, Mr. Hess’s smile grew bigger than the digits in Euler’s number. He and the newly dubbed Mrs. Hess are now no longer dependent on Skype to get face time as they spend their first week of married life in the picturesque landscape of Switzerland (hence the Swiss German farewell in the blog title). All that is left to do is bid farewell to our beloved math teacher in the same manner with which he greeted us as he walked through the doors two years ago: Shalom! (or as his students added, Shalom in the home!)
