Mr. Postovit is most known for the inspiration he provides to his students. Former students have said, “Absolutely one of the best teachers I had at SVHS,” “Made me enjoy one of the hardest courses the school has to offer,” and “Postovit was the best teacher I had at SVHS. He is over qualified to be teaching in a high school and you can tell he teaches because he genuinely loves it.” John Postovit is also an accomplished artist. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in various locations across the country, appearing in 40 solo shows and 109 group shows.
