Marvelous Mr. Mitchell was my homeroom teacher from 82-85 and, of course, my government teacher. He was a wonderful man who truly cared about his students. He helped to make high school memorable and enjoyable for me. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I know he's watching over all of us now as he did all those years he was our teacher.

I had Mr. Mitchell for government my senior year (1975). I can close my eyes and remember him sitting on the edge of his desk teaching. He was a wonderful teacher and I count myself privileged to have know him. Thank you Mr. Mitchell for your service at EHHS.

There are teachers who teach well, and those you never forget, and there are those rare teachers who do both- Marvelous Mr. Mitchell was one of those teachers. I only had him for one class for one semester- economics, but he was a teacher who I was even talking about a few days before his passing. I'll admit I wasn't a good student. I honestly didn't learn much about economics from him. But that was entirely my fault. The reason I am writing, however, is to point out what I feel is the more important quality he had which is paramount to being an excellent teacher- his ability to deal with bad students like me. He never lost his cool no matter how disruptive I or any other student was. He didn't send us to the principal or out in the hall. He just kept teaching. He did his very best to make us gen-xers interested in the subject matter, despite mine and others rampant cases of ADHD. And his class ended up becoming a welcome respite from some of the other mundane classes I had where teachers had clearly given up on their students. He was, as they say, as constant as the northern star, and his understated perseverance to teach regardless of the storm that was thrown about him by me and other students is what I realize all these years later as a subtle beautiful expression of passion- and though his intent may have not been to teach me that, that is what I learned from him...May He Rest In Perfect Peace.
