Mr. Snow was my 6th grade science teacher at Aquinas Elementary School in Steubenville, Ohio. He was such an amazing teacher, and I will always remember all of the cool things we did in his class. Never did a day go by without one of his crazy stories about the other schools he taught at. I am currently a freshman in college, and I still to this day tell all of my friends about how amazing his class was. He was truly an amazing man to be around, and he will forever be missed.
