Appreciation – John Mahoney

As one of John Mahoney’s former students, I wanted to submit a tribute him. It’s not enough to say that Mr. Mahoney was a wonderful, well-liked educator. Mr. Mahoney was so perfect for his chosen vocation. If he knew one of his students was struggling he would tell them, “You can do this,” and be very encouraging. Jack Mahoney made kids want to succeed.
