I have never forgotten Mr Dockery. He was one of those amazing people that once you meet them they never leave you. He was my 8th grade science teacher...and a true inspiration in my life. I moved around slot in my youth and attended many schools. He was the 1st teacher I ever looked up to, respected and felt a closeness. He truly cared about all his students. I have, so many times, reflected back on my times in his class....and the occasional talks we would have, and I still use the life lessons he passed on to me and have tried to pass those on to my kids. I am so sad to hear he is gone....and no feel truly lucky to have known him.
