Remembering SHHS teachers
It’s a good time to remember our teachers at Sunny Hills. I’ve written 2 portraits below, & intend to write at least 6 more. You’re all invited to leave your comments, or write portraits of your own. Please leave your name and class, and no trashing
You’re ALL invited tosay a few words or a lot of words about a teacher who meant a lot to you. I only knew some. Others like Mrs. Siuzanne Gary, Mr. Bruce Sayers, General Walter Bayler, and more deserve a place here. All our teachers deserve a place here.
We celebrate these people!

You know there were so many memorable teachers at SHHS when I was there, but here are a few more;
· Garner Barnett Coach/Driver Ed
· Robert Linn History
· Duane Sproul Chemistry
I have a story about Mr. Sproul. Chemistry was extremely difficult for me, and I was struggling to pass the course. It all came down to the final exam. I took the exam and I knew that I blew it. Mr. Sproul actually graded the tests in the class before we left, and he called us up when he finished. Here is the conversation:
DS: Alan, how do you think you did on the exam?
AH: I don’t think I did very well
DS: Why are you taking Chemistry?
AH: I need it for a lab science in my junior or senior year to graduate
DS: And if you don’t pass, what are you going to do?
AH: I guess I will take it over in summer school
DS: If you get a “D” would you still take it over in summer school?
DS: (Grabs grade book and writes down “D” for my grade). I’m teaching summer school.
The man had an incredible dry sense of humor.
