John Tomlinson was one of my favourite teachers in high school...30 years ago now! I respected his opinion, his attitude, his desire to teach, and his excitement when we appeared to learn.
Mr. Tomlinson was the best. I recall so much. Including my, and my best friend's anonymous essay "Mona, and the baseball bat" that neither of us admitted to. I loved him!
Very funny guy! Great teacher! Go one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eaters! Love you, sir!
he taught me how to write an essay without sounding elementary
There have been maybe 5 standout teachers in my life. Mr. T. was one of them. Very professional and helpful.
Now this man taught me how to write an ESSAY. I learned the foundation for many a beautiful paper from this teacher.
I had Mr. Tomlinson in gd 10 - 1985-86. By far, one of the best High School teachers I had.
