Patch caught up with him in December for our feature, where he discussed his . Day was one of the teachers honored at the Educational Excellence Awards this year, according to the GBHS website.

He is one of nearly 30 educators retiring from Glen Burnie area schools this year, according to a document shared by Anne Arundel County Public Schools spokesman Bob Mosier. 

Many of the teachers retiring throughout the county have served their communities for 30 years or more—including technology education teacher Wayne Edwards. Stay tuned this week to read his Five Questions With Q&A.

He was an excellent teacher! Does anyone know if he still did the field trips to Canada with the French club?

Mr. Day was my French teacher in 1976, and he taught all four of my children French at Glen Burnie High School! What an awesome teacher and person representing our school and community! Enjoy your retirement, you certainly earned it! Teresa Smith

I had Mr. Day for French I and V back in the early/mid '90s. He was one of my favorite teachers! I also had Mr. Edwards at Marley Middle School. I have fond memories of both of them. Keith Owens

I went to Marley Jr High and GBHS with Charlie from '62 until we graduated in June '68. He is and was a great friend, fun and really an all around nice guy. We went to one of our reunions at Michael's a few years ago and I believe it was the class of '76 that had their's the same night and presented him with a walker, with a bell and decorated! It was all in fun and he laughed and enjoyed the fun. I am proud to say he is a true friend and can't wait til our next reunion to meet up with him and many others. I'm glad he went to GBHS to teach and know he made a difference for many students. My sister's friend, they are both 5 yrs younger than me, had him for a teacher. I was home visiting and Diane said something about her teacher Mr. Day. I asked if his first name was Charles (Charlie) and she said yes. I laughed and said it is so strange to hear someone call him Mr. Day as he is and always will be Charlie to me and many others. Good luck on your retirement if you ever read this and hope to see you soon. Linda Leighty Moberg
