The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
-William Arthur Ward
The following is a list of teachers students would like to thank for helping them throughout their four years of high school:
***Ashley Cole – Jensen, Martinez, Duffy and Delbagno
***Stephen Duncan – Mr. Marino – For pushing me to do work I never thought I could and making me a better student.
*** Taylor Wilson – Mrs. DeRose – For not only being the best English teacher I’ve had throughout my high school career, but also for being the most caring teacher I’ve ever had, never failing to make sure I was okay and that my day was going well.
***Dana Berchak – Mrs. Fersch – For always being so nice and sweet to me and for being a wonderful chorus and piano teacher.
***Kristen Maegerlein – Mrs. Delbagno – Even though she was tough at times, she made us work like soon-to-be college students. Also she was always there to give advice when needed whether it was personal or school.
***Sierra Hudson – Mr Batche and Mr. Ross – They have done so much for me and for the drama club and I can’t thank them enough.
***Jen Levine – Mr. Batche – For always helping me out and teaching me crazy things. Schiavone and Mac – For always making me laugh!
***Kiersten Atkins – Mrs. DeRose – Thank you for teaching me so much. I have only had her for one year, but she taught me so much about myself as a writer. My writing has drastically improved in just one year.
***Michelle Reid – Mr. Batche – He is a great teacher and has helped me find something I want to do later in life.
***Emily Magyar – Mrs. DeRose – For everything she’s ever done for me. Being in her English CP class sophomore year gave me a new love for English and writing that I never thought I’d have. She pushed me to work hard and encouraged me to go into honors classes and that’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in high school. Being in her English IV CC class refueled my love for English and writing and it was a wonderful experience. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for all the help, guidance and support she’s given me throughout the two years I’ve known her, so a simple thank you will have to suffice.
