    Jesse was having a very rough start to high school last year, struggling to find his place. He was rudderless and wasn't involved in anything. We heard about the spring play and we urged Jesse to try out. Jesse procrastinated and we didn't find out that auditions were happening until the day-of. I emailed Mr. King and asked if Jesse could just watch the auditions since he had not prepared to actually audition. Mr. King graciously let him sit in on the auditioning process. But then Mr. King went above and beyond and coaxed Jesse into trying out. Jesse got to be part of that play and this year's fall musical. Being on stage has made Jesse blossom. He is a better version of himself thanks to Mr. King's willingness to let an inexperienced kid just try. Mr. King continues to build up Jesse's confidence in class and on stage, and I am just so thankful for him!

    I am nominating Mr. King because he is the most awesome teacher ever. He teaches us a lot of things but always makes it super fun. He'll do anything for his students to make them happy but he also helps us learn valuable things. He's super funny, kind, and overall amazing! Even with a super full classroom and a lot of students, he can always manage for the students to have an amazing time. I haven't talked to a student who doesn't like him. I'm excited every time I get to go to his class, even if I'm just saying hello to him because I know that whenever I go it will put a smile on my face. He always respects everyone and their differences outside and inside of the classroom. Mr. King is the best teacher I've ever had and I'm so lucky to have been taught by him.

    I am Nominating Mr Derek King, the BEST teacher ever. He is Awesome because even when we are doing the most boring lesson he still makes it fun. Mr kings class for the 6th graders is only a 1 semester but I wish it was a all year class. How he has supported me is whenever I am around his class during passing periods I can just drop in and say hello and he also says hello back! He is always making me feel good inside because he is always so nice and welcoming and is never rude. Even when he had to take someones phone, he still made it lots of fun by putting it in the "phone jail". I am nominating Mr Derek King because he is amazing, awesome, welcoming, funny, supporting, fun and soooooo much more. Mr King's class is an optional class in the 8th and 7th grade but I want to take it. He is by far, THE BEST TEACHER EVER. :).

Thanks to his guidance, support and hard work I like to attend his class, I like him to tell me inspiring stories and I like to learn something new every day.

    Mr.King is the best teacher you would probably find so far at Dueitt, he is always there for you he would never let you down and if he did something important had to happen he would never let someone down. He helped me to be more confident cause he always gave me pep talks and told me I could do it and not to let anyone get in my way or let anyone get me down I thank him for that, that has helped me improve in life so much. I know he cares about me he is like my school dad, and he is always tough on me that is how I know he cares about me. He helps me in and out of the classrooms because he keeps me in line and makes sure I don't do nothing I will regret.

    The thing that makes this teacher awesome is he shows us he cares and when we get tired he gives us the energy we need to keep going. He gives us a heads up on what were doing and he also makes class fun and he's aware when we need breaks. He calms us down and tells us we are one of the classes that make's his day better. He tells us he knows we have it and we are gonna get through it. . He supported me inside and out by letting me know i'm doing good.

    I just want to thank Mrs.King for being the best teacher overall this year and I really enjoy having this class , What makes Mrs.King awesome is that she tries to make all activities fun and I just love it and it's funny half the time. She lets everyone in the class know how much she cares and doesn't want anyone failing and I just appreciate that because some teachers don't say anything and wouldn't care.

    Even though we don't always do what we’re told she never yells she gives us our time to get work done and she gives second change. She makes me excited to go to class because she understands and forgives a lot more than other teachers. She’s definitely a teacher you can talk to without being judged.

She lets us know she cares by supporting us, making sure we are okay, and helping us with other things other than English.
