    Role Model: My role models are my mom and dad. They have both influenced me in tremendous ways and have supported me in everything I've done. They are always teaching me something new and have inspired me to strive to become a better person. They have helped shape me into the person I am today.
     
    Teacher with the most impact:  Mrs. Gilbert is definitely the teacher who has impacted me the most. I had her for Spanish II and III Honors freshman and sophomore year. She has been there for me since the beginning, and I know I can always go to her when I have a problem. She has helped me develop a love for Spanish and I hope we remain close after I graduate.

    Role Model: My role model is Dan Campbell from the band The Wonder Years. He's my role model because he is extremely passionate about what he does and has worked hard to be where he is now. Even after going to college and graduating he still chose to do what he loves and play music with his best friends. Through his music he has changed countless lives by sending a positive message to his audience.
     
    Teacher with the most impact:  Mrs. Tranchina has had the most impact on me during my time here. I have been a student of hers for three years now, I've had her for video production and digital photography. Mrs. Tranchina is by far the most hardworking and passionate teacher I've had the pleasure of meeting. She truly loves what she does, and is constantly here after hours editing videos, helping students and coaching. She has built the video production program to what it is today nearly all by herself and has taught me so much about the film industry in such a short time. Her teaching style is one of a kind and it makes for an exciting and surprising class each day.

    Future Plans:  I plan on attending Brookdale for the next two years and then transferring out to another school or university to finish college.
