Sechrist School was named after a local doctor in Flagstaff. Located on the edge of town, the school was surrounded by pine forests. I had no way to know at the time that this school would shape my life. Sixth grade was the best year of schooling ever.
Of all the teachers that I have ever had, no one comes close to Mr. Dawson. His passion for teaching kids, learning, and embracing life filled every lesson. I could write a book on my sixth grade year and possibly will someday.
