Mr. Dalton is the most amazing teacher of all time. and i'm not just saying that. he teaches 9th grade history at Heritage Academy and he cares so much about his students. he's an ex cop, and he can retire any time he wants to because he doesn't need the money, being an ex cop he's financially set for life. he remains a teacher because he wants to. he plays guitar, and he also helps students who want a music career by getting them into a recording studio so they can record a demo. he has amazing cop stories that everyone loves to hear; he's made us laugh, gag, and cry. i don't think there's another teacher anywhere out there like him, history is now my favorite class. he's one of my heroes actually. i used to be one of those kids who doesn't care about school, but he showed me that i can do so much better. he's the coolest and most interesting person i know. he's lived his life so far to the fullest without wasting it. he teaches us not only history, but life lessons as well. he will only accept excellence from us because he wants us to try harder, because he knows in the end it'll be worth it. i really really really really REALLY think he deserves this award, i've always wanted to do something to show him how incredible he is and i think this is it, plus he's earned this award big time. so yeah, you should give it to him. (: please.
