    Mr. bland has been student teaching at my school for almost the entire year. he’s been teaching my zoology class and he’s made it so amazing. Its my senior year, and in class we always talked about everyone graduating together including him. He wasn’t just a teacher, he was a friend. He was always concerned when he thought someone was sick it upset and never excluded anyone from anything. He was an amazing teacher and we defiantly won’t forget him.

    Mr. Bland was always telling us to keep smiling. He was an incredibly positive man and will not be forgotten by the students of Seckman High School. So many prayers are going out to his family and friends right now.
