A colleague wrote: “Everyone can recall that one teacher who stands out in their mind as the one who motivated them, cared for them in a genuine way, or sparked something they didn’t know they had. Mr. Mayberger is that teacher for many students.”
A student wrote: “Mr. Mayberger has been a fantastic inspiration to me. He kept me going and helped me exceed my expectations for all the possibilities that engineering and architecture could give me.”
