  1. My daughter just told me about Mr. Sisk's passing. I just can not believe it. I never met him in person. I just corresponded with him through emails. He was so helpful and eager to share his knowledge. I could tell that he loved his job and had a love for his profession. He told me that he could not wait to see my daughter this school year. Another great person has gone on to see our Maker.

  2. Mr. Antonio was my modern teacher. He was a great man who inspired everyone he met. Antonio talked to us as if we were close friends, not his students. he was one of those people who would speak his mind no matter what. If he was here, he would probably say how utterly cliche this is, but I mean evry word of it. He was a truly wonderful teacher, choreographer,friend, and person. I only have good memories of him that will live on forever. We will miss him forever.
