So sorry to hear about your dad. We all have many memories from Plainfield Road...the rock collection, the spider filled shed...potato pancakes and stuffed cabbage. He will be missed.

So sad to hear about Mr. Bielski; he was one of the great teachers I remember from Scituate.

Ed was a wonderful person and colleague. I have many fond memories of him. He had a wonderful impact on many people especially the students he taught. Ed will be missed but he will be remembered.

Thank you Mr. Bielski for being such a wonderful, inspiring and dedicated teacher. Our dad Bob Corbin thought the world of you as a fellow educator & friend. Many fond memories of going over to the house in Marshfield to see the awesome artifacts & going on actual digs in Plymouth. Estes Rocket launches on early Saturday mornings on the former Boston Sand & Gravel property in Scituate as well as behind the high school.
Sir, you were truly a treat & an inspiration to those of us who were fortunate to have you as a teacher. You challenged us, but never forgot we were children. Many thanks for helping our dad with masonry projects at the house! The kitchen stairs you built in 1971 is still there!
Thank you for being part of our lives.

I had a lot of teachers, and became one myself. He was one I never forgot. 6th grade Jenkins, 1960. Remember the Star Chart, glider contest, and digging for artifacts. Thanks, Mr. Bielski.

Very good teacher for us in the 6th grade at Jenkins School. For some of us, the 'first' male teacher we had. Liked the day trip to hunt for indian arrow heads in Plymouth, even if it did rain that day.
You taught us well.

I remember Mr. Bielski as my teacher in Scituate. He always pretended to be stern but, we knew he wasn't. Great teacher, nice man.
