Mr. John Transue. I was lucky to be a student of his my freshman year before his retirement. He taught history and was the advisor to the musical tech crew. A closet history buff myself, I enhanced my knowledge about the past, but also learned how a teacher should treat a student, maintaining a balance between being a friend and an educator. He offered unparalleled wisdom, taking into account the perspectives of all his students and treating them with respect and kindness.
Lastly, Mr. Virgil Wenturine, my high school social studies teacher. His passion for the subject and personalized approach to teaching inspired me to embrace learning. He fostered a supportive classroom environment, encouraging open discussions and respecting diverse perspectives. His mentorship extended beyond academics, serving as a coach supporting many of my athletic interests. His dedication and genuine care left a lasting impression.
Be genuine about your future decisions. If you want to head to a top college or pursue a particular vocation, you need to start thinking and working for that immediately.
