Mr. Hawkinson was grumpy, but cared about his students, and had a bit of humor to him. He noted each pupil's strengths and recognized them for it, and pushed them when they where lacking, telling us we could rise above our challenges with determination and effort. If a student was failing grades on behalf of laziness, he'd be stern. If it was on behalf of stress or troubles, he'd offer an ear. He paid attention and respected us. Made a great impact on me. He was a great teacher and person.
Mr. Hawkison rocks! One of the best teachers I ever had
Forced me to work hard. helped me get good grades. joked aroung with me a lot. encouraged me to keep up my work
I had Hawkinson as a teacher when I was in 5th grade back in 1987. He was a good teacher but he once told me his grandmother was faster then me when we played fball at recess. :)
Great teacher! Made Social Studies so much fun! Gave great advice! Made me try hard in school!
Mr. Hawkinson related really well with me and was very cool class of 01
he was really nice and cool and funny but can get really mad like for example the overhead.
Mr. Hawkinson is great. He always makes me laugh and gives good advice...He truly is a good man
