Mr. Timmons is a HERO because the way he presents himself makes others look up to him. He works long hours, uses his own resources for classroom supplies. Mr. Timmons is a counselors, advocates, is a friend , and is a sergeant. He sees the potential where others see dashed hopes and dreams. Also, he sees the light bulb in a child’s mind turn on. But one thing is certain, Mr. Timmons brings out the most amazing results! Think that subject is too difficult for you to learn? He is there to tell you that you CAN do it!
