Happy Birthday, Mr. Gasque

Jimmy Gasque

Jimmy Gasque

By Margaret Taylor

A fabulous teacher at Heathwood Hall Episcopal School just celebrated a big birthday. He has inspired more students with literature than any other person I have ever known. Mr. Jimmy Gasque was my teacher last year, and he is the one who encouraged me to write. He is the kind of teacher who will not allow any student to slip through the cracks.

Mr. Gasque keeps tabs on each of his students to make sure they are learning and doing well. I had a hard time learning grammar rules, and after taking Mr. Gasque’s class freshman year I am now the one proofreading other’s writing. I also started to read pleasure books again like I used to when I was younger. Mr. Gasque instills a sense of accomplishment in every student he teaches.
