Mr Howell was the best teacher I had throughout school. Other teachers simply failed in comparison to this man, and to say he cared was an understatement. He brought history to you in a way that actually made you look forward to it. Thank you Mr Howell. I just found out you have passed and are on a new journey, but your legacy lives on in the hearts and minds of your previous students.
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!!
