Christian Alvarez Hmm. I know this is a bit off, but I’d like to say every teacher I’ve had, from Busart to Wolgast to Brown to Keith to Schantz to Kern to Benninga to Mans to Dana. I’m right grateful for the opportunity to learn under these teachers and learn who they are and who they are not. I will live my life with the lessons said and unsaid among these people foremost, other teachers a close second.
Mariana Alves Ms. Nitcher. She is my favorite teacher and introduced me to a wonderful language: French.
Taylor Armes Mrs. Johnson- she encouraged me through a lot of difficulties in life.
Brooke Arnold Mrs. Prater because of her dedication and work ethic.
Alexis Arnold Mrs. Prater. She has taught me to never give up and [to] keep trying.
Danei Aviles Mrs. Lippoldt. She is super nice!
Tien Bach Mrs. Cox has the most impact on me. I have had her ceramics classes three years in a row. I can always come to her for advice, and she always helps me out.
Samuel Baker Mr. Walker for setting me on the right track, Mrs. Schantz for always being there in times of trouble, Mr. Frye for pushing me to work harder, and Mr. Bergkamp for pushing my limits.
Troy Baker Kendra Banzet (Mulvane). She helped me figure out what I want my major to be.
Samuel Baker Mrs. Schantz because I know I can go to her with any problem.
Marcus Ballenger I would say Mrs. Houseman has had a huge impact on me. I’ve never had her as a teacher but she was my En-Cor teacher and always gave me wonderful advice.
Preston Barley Mrs. Mans because we have created a trust where I can talk to her about anything.
Sawyer Barragan Doris Prater because of her work ethic, her drive, her caring heart, and passion for music.
Victoria Bartlett Mrs. Poole had the most positive impact on me because she helped me get help when I was going through rough patches at home.
Grace Bartlett I think Mrs. Debes because she’s always there if you need her.
Isabel Baumer The one teacher that comes to mind is Mrs. Elder. She always pushed me to be the best student I could be, even when it seemed like I couldn’t. She believes in all of her students and forces them to see the brilliance they all possess. I know that it’s because of her that am who I am today.
Emily Beaver Mr. Bergkamp, whom I’ve had for a year and a half in AP Physics and AP Chemistry. He is a gifted science teacher and I couldn’t ask for anyone better to read my name at graduation. He has changed the way I learn, think about math and science, and has definitely been an influence on my impending college major and career path. Even though he hates biology, he has inspired me to pursue my favorite branch of science.
Anthony Bianco My En-Cor teacher because I known her for four years.
Nathan Bibb Mr. Kirk because I’ve known him since I was in 5th grade and he’s made being in band fun.

Darian Bishop Mrs. Schantz because you can tell that she cares about each and every one of her students.
Hallie Bontrager I would say Mrs. Cox has had the biggest impact on me. I took Ceramics 1 my freshman year and throughout my whole high school career I continued to take her classes. She pushed me way out of my comfort zone constantly which sometimes irked me but now I’m incredibly thankful for that.
Macayla Border Honestly, I can not pick just one teacher. They all have made a huge impact on me during my four years. If I absolutely have to choose, it would be my tennis coaches. They showed me not to give up, to keep pushing for the best end goal, and to never let the little things get in the way of the greatness just beyond.

Trevonn Chaney Ms. Hogan
Elizabeth Christensen A lot of teachers have made my high school experience amazing, starting with administration.

Sam Cohlmia Mr. Hornung because he is very laid back but absolutely serious at the same time.

She believed in me both on the court and off the court at times when I definitely didn’t believe in myself. Her support has helped me be confident in who I am and I will never be able to repay that!
Zuleyma Contreras Ms. Jensen- she made me change my life around after I was failing most of my classes. (-:

Macy Ellis Mrs. Graber has had the greatest impact on me in the past four years. I had Mrs. Graber for Freshman Honors English and she truly made English a passion of mine. Mrs. Graber is not a teacher stuck on cramming a bunch of required curriculum in your head; she genuinely cares about each one of her students and their achievements in all areas.
