Mr Donelson is the poster child of dream teachers. No matter who you are or how much effort you put in, this man will do everything in his power to help you succeed and if you don't then its because of your own doing not his.If you have him consider yourself lucky.

His class is boring. Then all of sudden, he gives out a really hard quiz. He tries a lot of new things, but they are not effective. To be honest, I did not learn anything from his classes this year. He is not a harsh teacher so half of class sleeps or watches Netflix during class.

Mr. Donelson was a great teacher all around. He helped his students when they needed it, and on the other side, was a kind and caring man. If you get Donelson, you're sure to have a great year.

Mr. Donelson is the best! He is involved in every aspect of his students' learning and takes his job very seriously. He made my year, and supported me much better than my counselor did during a really rough period of my life. Mr. Donelson's class was an awesome way to start the day, I learned so many things in his class that really helped me survive freshman year. His student are so important to him. I cannot stress enough how amazing he is, if you have him you'll have the best year.

Mr Donelson shows EXTREME dedication for what he does. He is one of the best teachers i have ever had, not only in English but in general! He loves his job! Big D puts so much effort to make sure all his students understand the material. Anyone is blessed to have this man as a teacher.

I was in big D's flch class last year, and he is just an extremely chill guy. It was a really fun class, and my writing skills improved greatly. Despite a stupid "dragon slayer" project (which I blame piazza for), all of the projects were for the good of the students' brains (although not their grades :D).
