I had Mr. Howell in 1998/1999 and he was the most amazing teacher I ever had. I kept in sporadic touch with him over the years, and found out that he passed away in 2013 when his sister responded to a Christmas card I sent him. He is greatly missed and it warms my heart that every time I mention him to other Dobson folks, they feel the same way. It's also nice to see that others took the time to come on here and say how much they loved him. RIP Mr. Howell!!
He actually made history fun and interesting. Best teacher ever.
He's the reason i'm going to be a History teacher, very cool guy, missed much at dobson by the alumni of 01'
Mr. Howell is the reason I'm in college right now, going to school to be a teacher. Probably the best teacher I've ever had!
He inspired to me to major in History. I still try to keep in touch with him. Awesome guy!!
