Mr. Drakes, I was lucky enough to have you as an art teacher at Rusell Sage in Queens back in 1983 and i must say you were not only talented but also a great mentor. Im now running an airline in central florida and your words of encouragement help me overcome so many walls in my life.
Thank you so much.
Best principal! Best boss! They broke the mold after you...there will never be another principal to match you.
If you are the same Mr Drakes I had for art in Russell Sage Jr High in 1980s,then let me tell you I still cherish those days.Thanks for caring.I am a graphic designer.Love from Argentina,Vanesa Meyer
best principal on the high school I think, or was the best.
Mr. Drakes is the best principal ever. He actually listens to the students & tries his best to do wat we want. He cares about us more than you think!!
Best principal in the whole wide world!!!!!!!!!!!WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE U
