My heart was warmed to see that Mr. Y was honored by the Coronado Times. (“Coronado High School Teacher Ray Yannaccone Succumbs to Cancer,” 3/15/2021) Mr. Y was my English teacher this year, and even though we only saw each other through screens, I really got to know him. He was a kind man, a patient teacher, and a fellow Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast. Mr. Y did so much for so many students and teachers at CHS, and it only feels right that he should be appreciated, celebrated, and remembered in his passing.
