Last Chat with Senior TeachersFriday, May 18, 2012 By Hansol Kim
There is only a week left until the end of the school year and seniors are getting ready to graduate. Hansol spoke to a few senior teachers. Art teacher Mrs. Brothers : “I hope that they [seniors] always continue to want to learn and have a curiosity for things. Have a good time in college, and work hard.” She said that especially on the graduation day, she feels sad but it’s good to have students come back and visit. “It’s always good to have the beginning of the year and at the end, start up again.” This year, she wanted to introduce a figure sculpture with her AP class and she was able to do that, as well as her ceramic class that did some figures. She also got seven students recognized in some of the art shows. She said that every class is unique and her AP class was one of the best classes she’s had for eight years of her teaching. Meanwhile, the best memory of her school year is when her AP class threw her a surprise party. English teacher Ms. Sinclair: “It’s been a pleasure teaching you and don’t forget the lessons that you learned at Catholic and make your parents proud.” She is also happy that the school year is over but sad that she doesn’t get to see the students that she bonded with over the year. She plans to take over Forensics from Mrs. Smith next year and this year she got to learn the ropes and how to do it. Her best memory of the year was when her senior class did the husband and wife traits for Taming of the Shrew . “I learned more than I cared to know,” said Sinclair. She said that she tried to connect with everybody and treat everyone equally to foster healthy classes. Government teacher Mrs. McCubbins: “Good luck in college, and whatever you do I life and just remember to work hard,” said McCubbins. She enjoyed her We the People class and her AP class. “Not just teaching, but it was just a good experience,” said McCubbins.
