Welcome back to my blog! In my last post, I shared my story about an incredible opportunity to study abroad in Spain for an entire year all thanks to North Penn High School. This week, I’m going to switch things up a little bit as I focus on the amazing staff members who made my experience at NPHS so perfect. This semester, I’ve been writing about one story in particular for each post, but I don’t think I could ever pick one staff member to write about. With that said, this won’t be a traditional blog post. NPHS has too many wonderful staff members, so I’m going to include the name of almost every staff member that I interacted with, laughed with, learned from, was inspired by, was grateful for, etc.
Before I list their names, I want to explain why doing so is so important to me. As a student at NPHS, I absolutely loved school. I wanted to be there not only because I loved learning, but also because I loved the staff. I was always making every excuse to get there early, stay late, hang around to talk, etc. I wanted to know as many staff members as possible. I admired each and every staff member that I interacted with.
As a freshman in college, I think about all of the staff at NPHS 24/7, wondering if they know that I really did and continue to appreciate them. I want to be like the staff at NPHS when I have the opportunity to be an educator. I use the staff as examples of what good teaching looks like for my assignments. I use them as inspiration if I’m having a rough day. I miss seeing their smiling faces every day and popping in and out of their rooms. Each and every staff member listed below has made a unique impact on my life, and I don’t think I will ever be able to accurately describe my appreciation. With that said, thank you to:
Mrs. De Marteleire
