Mr. Granger is an unforgettable teacher. In addition teaching me American history and how to take an impeccable approach to note taking, he boosted my confidence and made me feel like I could do the impossible. He helped me write college applications, wrote the kindest letter of recommendation (I saved a copy to this day) and printed my final essay on resume paper. He had a special way of making us all feel seen and smart.
