He was a great educator. Mr. Covington brought a great deal of passion and vigor into his classroom. I enjoyed my time with him.
I was a student of Mr. Covington for 3 years at West Millbrook Middle in 1979-81. I found him capricious and biased. Even 26 years later I still have occasional nightmares of being back in his class.
I came to the USA in 1992 and did not know ANY english. I was failing all my classes. Mr Covington helped me every day after school. After that year I was taking college level classes until I graduated in 1995. The best teacher EVER!!
a huge thankyou to the best teacher my daughter ever had --he made her learn and do for herself yet always helpful and creative
His unique, creative style killed my grades but broadened my life.
