Mr. Gardner was the reason that I can say math class was the best subject during my middle school career. The beginning of seventh grade is when I first met Mr. Gardner. When I first entered seventh grade I was nervous and had no idea what I was doing. Mr. Gardner was the type of teacher that kept you on your toes and was always there for you, especially if you were on his good side. Overall, my favorite teacher for seventh and eighth grade would have to be Mr. Gardner. From lunch parties to fun field trips, he never would make you feel like a failure, and let you know that you were always welcome in his class. It was a sad day when I left Croft Middle School, but I am glad that I had a wonderful teacher like Mr. Gardner.
