I am now a doctor of dental surgery, and I owe my love of science to Mr. Shiland. He is a good man, and a great teacher. He may teach a difficult subject matter, but he makes it easy by going tone extra mile to reach each student in a way that is easy to understand. I owe the 5 I got on my AP Chem exam to him, as well as so much more!

Mr. Shiland(T-Shi) was definitely one of my favorite teachers junior year. If you dont understand something in chem, he'll go back and explain further. Hes hilarious if you understand sarcastic humor!
