at first, he seemed very strict and intimidating to me... well he is, but Mr. Bonnell was a very effective teacher. if you take the class seriously, you cant go wrong.
A senior Latin student, I've had the pleasure of studying under Mr. Bonnell (affectionately known as "Billy Bonnelly") for 3 years now. Indeed, a great man.
best english teacher EVER. so motivating, challenging, really pushes you. hard to get an A, but you really earn your grade. makes things interesting!!
His reputation as a really strict teacher is actually not true. He is a character and as much as I didn't like him, he give you a good start in high school.
I am a Sophomore still at SMHS. Bonnell is a great teacher who makes you work and really improved my quality of writing.
I'm currently a junior in college and I still remember a great deal of the Latin I learned from him freshman year at SMHS. He's fantastic.
High school was a long time ago for me, but Mr. Bonnell is one of the few teachers I remember fondly. He was fantastic!
Still the best teacher I've ever had, and I'm a graduate student at UH. Word Mr. Bonnell... splendid indeed.
