Skyline High School
When i moved to Arizona from Utah. I had a 1.1 GPA and was a pothead. I didnt know anybody and planned to get back into drugs down here to make freinds, but then Mr. Jones came and talked to me. He talked me into joining the football team and since that changed my whole schedual i ended up in his class. Mr.Jones helped me with credit recovery and helped me get my GPA up to a 3.2 and follows up with me every week. he has changed my life for the better. I no longer do drugs and I am playing football again this year. He also helped me decide to go to college and after join the military. He has motivated me to work harder in school and make something out of myself. I actually feel like I can succeed in school and do better in my classes. I never trusted teachers before, but he has shown me that teachers do care. I think he deserves this award because he didnt have to go out of his way to help me out when I was sitting alone. He has sent me on the right direction and changed my life forever. He has taught me more than just history, he taught me to make something out of myself.
