What ever happened to Mr. Hupart?

Greatest 11th grade History teacher I could ever imagine... He really had a way of getting everyone involved and interested in the class, regardless of their frame of mind; I showed up with many different ones of those depending on the day...

I still tell people that Mr. Hupart was the best teacher I ever had! Anyone else had any dealings with him around 1980-1981?

Robert Braun ...
"Jamming!" hahahahahaha... too funny.

Is that the guy (Mr. Hupart) who used to be there in school early every morning playing that big band music?

Hi Robert,

Sadly, Marv migrated over to Fort Hunt for awhile until he became ill. My mother used to drive cancer patients to their appointments, and she once drove Mr. Hupert to his. He's gone, now; I can't remember what year it was when she told me, but it was an incredible blow to realize he was gone. He accomplished the impossible for me; he made history seem real and not something to fear and loathe

Indeed Mr. Hupert was the guy that came in early and played the big band music in the morning.

Great guy; very sorry to hear that he is gone! He got me off to a humerous start every day...

Indeed, he got involved.  I'm sorry to hear he's no longer with us.  Last time I saw him, he was at our 10 class reunion in 1985.  He will be missed.  I remember role playing the Russian Tzar history stuff and Earl (tall black guy, can't remember his last name) was the Tzar, what a production!  Does anyone remember the nose and glasses thing he used to do???  Haven't thought about that kind of stuff in years.

My memories go back a bit further (class of 1970)
Mr. Hupart was indeed the only teacher I
ever liked in 12 years of public school.

He apparently liked jazz, was always talking
about Fats Waller.

Very sad news.  Mr. Hupart lost his battle with cancer.  He was a very remarkable man!
