    Being in Ms. Warren's class is one of the few things that has gotten me through the school year. She's always energetic and kind, and somehow manages to radiate positivity every single day. Her teaching style is heavily focused on discussion, and there's always an opportunity to voice your perspective. One thing that amazes me is that when a student says a remark that sparks controversy during our discussions, Ms. Warren is quick to diffuse the situation, acknowledge that everyone's opinion is valid, and then explain why it may have been insensitive or ignorant, like when a student jokingly yelled out "All lives matter" during a discussion about the Black Lives Matter movement. Although everyone knew it was a joke, she still took the time to explain how that phrase was used to diminish the significance of the movement. She's also incredibly empathetic and notices whenever someone is feeling down. In fact, she's done the most out of my teachers in helping me through my depression. Ms. Warren was the first to talk with me, listen to my situation, and provide support and advice wherever she could. She offered her own life experiences and shared what she did when she was in a similar situation. When my situation worsened, she helped me connect to one of the social workers at school. Although I might be struggling to do assignments outside of the classroom, her encouragement and support had never faltered.

    Honestly I don’t know where to start with Ms. Warren. Let’s start off with the fact that she is an amazing teacher and she always makes sure we are on top of our game. I came in the middle of her class as a new student for her and she made it so I was able to catch up with my class quickly and I did! I can honestly go on and on about Ms. Warren but one experience made me realize she is the perfect teacher she is wonderful and she is someone who I will always think of when I grow older. Ms. Warren has helped me step out of my comfort zone and helped me open up to not being a demure student and when I lost important people to me in my family she was there to help me with some words of encouragement I just want to say Ms. Warren I thank you so much for helping me get through that rough time.

    This teacher is awesome because Mr. Washington is very Real When he teaches, he cares about everyone, and works with own pace. What makes me excited to enter his classroom would be his energy.

    Ms. Wesselhoft is such a fun teacher, the activities we do we learn from and even if it's not an activity we manage to make a joke or enjoy it in some other way. When I first was in class I thought Geography was gonna be all the students having to memorize continents and countries and having tests on them, but it was the opposite! We did learn our continents and countries of course it really does help but I leaned about regions and cultures and how they all have a connection. I'm glad I got to do Geography, it taught me so much and still does.

    One of the main things Ms. Wasselhoft has done was being really understanding of me. She always makes sure that we all know what is going on and if we need help how we can help. It always makes me feel happy when I find out that she is taking extra time to focus on everyone individually. In the first term, I was getting a bad grade in her class so I emailed her and she sent an email back to me almost immediately. She helped me out and took time out of her day to help me. I am so happy that she is my teacher because my first year in middle school would have been even more stressful. I can tell she cares about each student including me.

    Ms. Watkins is a wonderful teacher! She has incredible teaching skills and great empathy for the students. For example Ms. Watkins quickly noticed that my son likes to help and paired him with another boy in his class who did not speak English and it helped both boys. Another example is when my son wrote something inappropriate in his journal she was surprised and she spoke with him about it and allowed him to choose better words. This saved him from being embarrassed and he didn’t do it again. In addition, during this challenging time of distance learning, Ms. Watkins went to great lengths to ensure his login problems were solved and he could join his class. We appreciate Ms. Watkins so much!!!
