I graduated in 2006. Mr. Watkins was my all-time favorite English teacher. He was the reason I became an English teacher myself. I still remember the first lines to The Iliad and The Odyssey.

Mr. Watkins was the best teacher I ever had. His top ten inexorable truths and 1066 will stay with me. He wrote the first play I was in for the Drama department at Seneca. What a talented man. I loved his debate speech (I won most valuable speaker for anti-doctor assisted suicide). It helped with public speaking. He lacks knowledge of technology, but his college teaching style makes his students want to succeed and prepares them well to advance in English. Remember remember the 5th of November!
