What was the most valuable thing you learned in high school?

Most valuable thing I learned or developed in high school was the ability to observe and work with people. This is skill is priceless when it comes to post high-school because I may need to use a certain equation or literary device depending on my job, I’ll always need to be able to work with people. People also host a variety of reactions so it is always good to gauge how people will react to you.

Which teachers made an impact on you?

All my teachers had a strong impact on me so this question is a little more difficult. However, that being said, three teachers whom I had the pleasure of having made a large impact on me; Galinski, Linenbringer, and Sauer. Galinski taught me that chemistry could be so fun and had a really unique teaching style that blended with me very well. Linnenbringer taught me advanced calculus and also taught me patience as he always worked with my very excitable class. Mr Sauer really set into me the nuances of historical arguments and enforced the “blue worm” policy. Note I had all these teachers for 2 years and they made high school very fun for me.
