Passing of Mr. Joe Jonsson
It is with great sadness that we inform the Bethune community of the passing of one of our former math teachers, Mr. Joe Jonsson. Mr. Jonsson passed away suddenly on Saturday, September 24. Mr. Jonsson retired from teaching just this past June. He was a teacher for 39 years and taught at Bethune for 33 years. He stayed well beyond his retirement date because, as he said so many times, "I still love what I do". He was a committed educator who cared deeply for his students and he taught them so well. He made math accessible to students who struggled in math and he gave them confidence, and he challenged and inspired those who excelled in math. Mr. Jonsoon has had an incredible impact on so many staff and students. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Jonsson's family.
