How to use gill in a sentence?

  1. Jeanette Schade:

    Mr Grotting's threats to teachers is unethical and should be dealt with swiftly, the teachers who threatened other teachers from the [anti-racist] training got that idea straight from Mr. Grotting who wants to perpetuate [critical race theory] and force feed it to people who do not want it. That is wrong, unethical, and down right disgusting! Don Grotting, you need to resign immediately. School Board members, you need to fire him if he doesn't. Mr Gill, you have an ethics issue in one of the largest school districts in the state.

  2. Stan Shea:
