Teachers make an impact on seniors lives

Senior Jaylen McCullick stands next to her former elementary teacher at her volleyball senior night. They have known each other for around eight years.

In thirteen years of school seniors have found some teachers who have made a significant impact on their lives. 

   “I have learned so much from Ms.(Bethany) Siegel during my years in high school, like knowing the right time to do or say something,” senior Abbigail Flinn said. She has known business teacher Bethany Siegel since she was a freshman in high school.  

   The seniors at WHS have very little time left at Warsaw and some of them want to continue to make a good impression as a student. Senior Lovlie Haidusek said she has built a good relationship with one of her teachers. 

   “Mrs. Spunaugle is my favorite teacher because she has always been there for me throughout the years and we just really clicked since I met her,” Haidusek said.

  Senior Jaylen McCullick says her elementary teacher has had the most impact on her growth.

    “Mrs. Larson, my fifth grade teacher at North Elementary, taught me to always be kind and understanding of what other people are going through,” McCullick said.  

   Not all of the senior class has gone to this school district their whole life. 

   “I have 3 teachers that have made an impact on my life (I’ve moved three times) Mrs. Pole (Oklahoma) Mrs. Albino (New Mexico) Mrs. Glenn (Missouri),” senior Alison Longhat-Hallock said. She stated that high school English teacher Amber Glenn taught her that even when life gets hard, to always take deep breaths and stay focused. 

   Longhat-Hallock said Glenn has encouraged her to go into teaching education after high school. She loves the things that come with teaching, like getting to help kids learn new things and building relationships. 

   For some seniors, teachers have impact beyond the classroom. Coaches also have been a great influence on student- athletes. 

   “Coach Eierman has taught me to never give up and work hard in sports, not only that but in life,” senior Devon Boul said. 

    Coaches encourage students to improve academically as well as physically. 

   “I would say Coach Ryan Boyer and Coach Nathan Parker are my top favorite coaches because they have taught me what it means to be unselfish. They have also taught me that if my team or family needed me to step up and that’s what it’s all about,” senior Riley Taylor said.
