Andrew Piccuta was a wonderful teacher. He loved his job and it showed by the students that were blessed to have him as a teacher. When he came to Rose Ave. he not only became my friend, he became my mentor. He taught me so much about being an educator and supported me while I learned the ins and outs of teaching. Andy was always there for me and I am eternally greatful of his friendship.
Rest In Peace.
A friend always. Mike B.
