    Work experience teacher to retire after 45 years

    From the outside, Meredith Gyves and Jack Phillips look as though they have been good friends for a long while. They laugh and tease each other as old friends do, while reminiscing about Palo Alto High School back in the 1960s. Although Paly is where they met, their relationship did not begin as a friendship, but rather as a student-teacher relationship. Gyves was a high school student, and Phillips was her English teacher senior year.
