Mr. William Gilbert
English teacher Mr. William Gilbert is loved by students, despite the complex content of his class. With works like Moby Dick and Winesburg, Ohio as some of the literature that he teaches, it is a miracle that he can make it enjoyable. Gilbert has always loved teaching the books that he loves to read to students and to see them laugh at a story and enjoy it. He could not imagine doing anything else with his degree.
“I think the difference between kids who like reading and kids who don’t like reading is that they didn’t have a good English teacher at some point in their lives to show them that books are a uniquely portable magic that can go with you anywhere and the love for that is either going to be taught at home, or with an English teacher,” said Gilbert.
