Shout out Mrs. Santore-Schwartz. You are the best.

I love coming to Mr. Krall’s class. His classroom is so relaxing and makes me feel welcome. I have learned so much from you this year. I know teaching can be a thankless job, but know that you are appreciated for what you do above and beyond.

Mrs. Bunting is such a great PE teacher. Thanks to you, PE is my favorite class this year and I really mean that because I used to hate PE. You’ve helped me when I was upset, and I won’t forget that.

I love you Mrs. Galello. Your class is so fun because of you. Thank you for being my favorite teacher this year! Your teaching style helps me see my potential more than I ever could.

Thank you Mrs. Bova for being my favorite teacher ever. You are so caring and kind to everyone. You really care about us. Especially me!

I want to shout out Mr. Hinkle for keeping class real. You have high expectations and I appreciate that you believe in me.

I want to shout out Mrs. Gillespie because she really helped me understand that I need to find myself and believe that I can learn the skills and topics. I really thank her for that.

I wanna give a shout out to Mr. Cater. He always brightens the mood and makes me happy. His class is awesome, and it is so fun to just be silly.

I’d like to shout out Mrs. Bryan, my geometry teacher, for teaching me all the things about geometry so far and keeping me up to date on Alex.

I would like to shout out Mrs. Bone for always helping me out, being nice, and making class fun all the time.

Mrs. Berke, you make class fun and entertaining. Your class is a fun environment.

I want to shout out Mr. Gross, the show choir teacher, because he welcomed me with open arms and he saw the potential in me. And he knew what I could do, so I thank him dearly.

I would like to shout out Mrs. Candeloro. She really is nice and helps me a lot with my algebra work. She is really talented.

Mr. Riley – he is a great teacher. He makes sure we always get our work done on time but he doesn’t overwork us.

Mr. August is a great teacher. I look forward to coming to your class every day. I can tell that you really care about us and want us to be successful. Thanks for being a great teacher.

Thank you Mr. Draheim for helping me when I need it most. I have learned a lot in your class this semester. I really hope you can be my teacher again in the future.

Wow Decatur! You really showed up with the shout outs! Keep them coming by filling out the link on Schoology. Stay tuned for more shout outs tomorrow! Thank you to all SDHS teachers for all you do each and every day.
