Mr. Sheehan was not only my sixth grade teacher, but one of my most memorable and favorite teachers. He knew how to make learning fun and was kind to everyone. In more recent years, I had the priviledge of visiting with him on from time to time and I was always thrilled he remembered me from so many years ago. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

Mr. Sheehan was my 6th grade teacher. I just loved him! He made the class interesting and he had a wonderful sense of humor. I remember walking down the hall at school. The floors had just been waxed and were a bit slippery. As I rounded the corner I caught Mr. Sheehan do a short run and then slide a few feet down the hall. When he turned and saw me, he just shrugged his shoulders and laughed. Here's a picture of us ready for a class trip to Granby Zoo. God bless Mr. Sheehan and his family. Rhonda Patnode Jay
