I had the privilege to have Mr. Wilson as my 8th and 9th grade history teacher at Wendover Jr. High. Hands down, THE BEST academic teacher I ever had, and I'm currently a lawyer. He made history so much fun, and we learned! To this day, I can still recite all the Presidents of the United States. The lessons, The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, Old Ironside, having to say (not sing) the Star Spangled Banner, state, capital, largest city, I could go on! Mr. Wilson, THANK YOU!!
Mr. Wilson was my history teacher at Wendover Jr. High in 1980 - 82. He is unquestionably the single most important pedagogue in my entire educational history. So much of how I interact in business today (I'm 48) is a direct result of lessons learned from him. He is a dedicated instructor who cares for his students and they will learn well. His lessons have a measurable and notable impact on my life at least once a week. Turkey, stuffing, turkey stayed with me in the Navy and IUP and today.
I had Mr. Wilson back in the mid 90s. All these years later and he came up in a conversation today. One of the best teachers i ever had. I used Turkey and Stuffing throughout high school and college. He was so upbeat ... He made learning fun.
"Its a beautiful day...now lets get started" I never had him as a classroom instructor, but the many life lessons I learned on the track at practice about life and myself I learned from him. I still use many of them today. He is highly respected among his peers, students and former athletes because he EARNED it and it was gladly given. Seldom do we have the opportunity to cross paths with someone like Mr. Wilson in a lifetime....and I'm honored that I had that chance.
Mr. Wilson is a superior instructor. If u gave ur full effort in class u were rewarded. If u were a n00b and slacked off then u were gonna get pwn'd regardless if it was a "beautiful day" or not
I loved Mr. Wilson. Learned so much from him. Turkey and Stuffing got me through college! I always loved his positive attitude and his smile. It was a pleasure to be in his class.
I had him last year... he's the best teacher i've had so far. His class was really hard but he made everything so much fun! Its a beautiful BEAUTIFUL day!
Mr Wilson is awsome but his class is imposible the first social studies class i actuly had 2 study for
"It's a beautiful day","Its time to go to work"......i make me angry sometimes and i think your practices are hard but it the end it all pays off....thanx
O my goodness what a beatuful day. The best teacher i have ever had. He makes you try and if you do its not hard at all.
Had him in Jr. High. I remember more from his class than any other I've ever had. AMAZING teaching techniques. Reached out to all.
Very funny and cool at times.... but the hardest teacher i have ever had in ... my life!!! His jokes will always make u laugh along with his singing.
His stories, jokes, quotes, and song rule! He was one of the best!
