this rating is based on the fact that I had Mr Skinner for my history class teacher 19 years ago he is literally one of the most amazing teachers I have ever had he definitely leaves an impression on your heart to where you always remember him helping you learn and discover the past in a fun way. I currently have children enrolled at gregori High School and I'm definitely not impressed at all if I had the way to transfer my children to Thomas Downey High School that is exactly what I would do

Mr. Skinner is an excellent teacher, in my opinion. I went through his class in 2009-2010 and 5 years later as I approach the end of my current military contract, I think that a career in education as a history teacher would be great. High school is a challenging time in every young persons life and teachers like Mr. Skinner are very bright spots in what appears to be darkness for most. Definitely a fun and creative teacher with interesting and entertaining teaching methods.

Mr. Skinner is the reason I actually enjoyed history. He made history fun for the class and the wall visuals were a clever way to keep us all interested. I would highly recommend any new student to go to him! He's very laid back but still wants you to learn. His lectures were not only educational but also entertaining! BEST HISTORY TEACHER EVER!!!!
