Mel was a fantastic teacher, he will be missed. he took pride in his students success and pushed them to be able to back up their own thoughts and beliefs to prepare them for life.
I can say that I won't forget being in his drama class. He was very, very helpful and never overlooked a student.
Probably the best teacher you could ever have for drama or English. Just don't make him mad.
Mel's English class is something you will remember for many years to come...
