Hi People,

I just wanted to know if anyone knew about teachers who fought teachers in the outside lands area.

I went to A.P. Giannini junior high school and I remember that two gym teachers there got into a fight. One was a Mr. Casalagio, who was head of the gym department and also a dean. He was the drill sargeant bully type who looked like the great general George Patton of World War II fame and treated everyone like gym class was boot camp. The other teacher was a Mr. Vernando who, as far as I was told, was a golden gloves boxing champion though he sure didn't look it but apparently he beat the hell out of that bully Casalagio. I never did find out the reason for the fight but I remember everyone talking about it even though very few people actually saw the fight.
