My name is Michael James I knew Gerry when he taught social studies at the now closed John Jay High School.... by my recollection he would be quite "long on the tooth" as I am in my late 50's... Like to see a pic of him

Can't believe Schmugar is still at Dewey!!! Graduated in 1991 and Schmugar was one of the very best Dewey had to offer. After taking his class was fully prepared for college. No more calls home. lol

Graduated from JDHS in 1989. Mr. Schmugar was and always will be a positive influence - he cares too much to be otherwise.

Mr. Schmugar is funny, but his class is hard. He is really strict on all his work, but that shows that he really cares about his students. Some may misunderstand and just think he hates them, but that's not true. *wink
