Mr. John Giles is a teacher that has been at Mount Tabor for many years now. He is a teacher that is regarded as highly influential, fatherly, and flat out amazing in his teaching capabilities. Anyone who has had Mr. Giles will agree that he taught them in a way that was unique and made them actually enjoy school. Many students have spoken out about how Mr. Giles has given them the courage to speak up and feel as though their opinion mattered in life through his discussions and seminars that he would hold in his classroom. This year, Mount Tabor has announced to him that he will be removed from the faculty due to the fact that money is an issue. Since Mr. Giles is a part time teacher, they are making the decision to fire him first. I know that anyone attending Mount Tabor will vouch that there are many other teachers that could be done without over Mr. Giles and say that firing him on the basis of him being a part-time teacher is unfair. Mr.Giles has changed the life of many, and being two years from retirement it is completely unreasonable and unjust to fire such a fantastic and loving teacher. Please sign this petition in hope that we can make a difference and keep a man that has made such a remarkable difference in the lives of many.

Cathy Sears-Martin, United States5 years ago Comments: John was a fabulous teacher to my son, Hunter Martin. He remains a good friend at church and in the community. He is the best teacher at Mt. Tabor High School.
Margaret Dickson, United States5 years ago Comments: Mr Giles taught both of my children and was probably the best teacher they ever had. With so many budget cuts necessary I can understand the need to cut back, but to eleminate one of your very best teachers seems somewhat counter productive. Surely there must be something else you can do......
