Tyson is one of the most laid-back students I have ever taught. He's usually so slumped back in his chair that he is almost slipping under his desk. He often looks on the verge of nodding off to sleep. But he also has a mischievous grin / smirk (see above) which makes it look like he knows something you don't (or is about to DO something that you won't like). So he's this fascinating mix of "almost asleep" and "up to something".
Thankfully, looks can be deceiving. Tyson has never done anything to annoy or upset me in any way (nor has he ever fallen asleep in my class). In fact, Tyson is a really great guy. Friendly, responsible, and blessed with a great sense of humour. Plus, you have to respect anyone who goes to see Soundgarden in concert (good taste, Tyson!).
If memory serves me correctly, Tyson joined our school when he was living in another school district (somewhere on the North Shore?). Not sure if you now live in the KG catchment area or not, Tyson, but I'm sure glad that you came to King George and that I got to teach you for the past three years. Thanks for all the good laughs you have provided me with, and all the hard work you have invested, during our time together.
All the best to you TH!
