    Role Model: There are multiple people that I look up to as a role model. However, the person that inspires me to be the best version of myself would have to be my younger brother. He is a freshman at Biotech and plays soccer, basketball and baseball and is always multitasking school and sports which I admire. He is always showing me that as long as you think you can do it and work hard for it, anything is possible. I admire this about him because it causes me to know that I can do anything and also inspires me that be a better big sister every single day.

    Teacher with the most impact:  Throughout my past three years here at Shore I have been lucky enough to have many amazing teachers that have had an impact on me. Therefore, I can not name just one. A few that have changed my life for the better would be Mrs. Lavin (IB Art), Mrs. Bertolomi (Intro to 3D and Mrs. Simonson (Honors French) . I have had both Mrs. Lavin and Mrs. Simonson since my freshman year and have been able to reap the benefits of having them. Mrs. Lavin pushes me every day in IB art to make pieces that exceed what I think I am capable of and explore different media's and techniques. Being in IB Art with Mrs. Lavin is like you are in a college art class. Due to this I have been able to get a grip on the fact that I may want to pursue art in college. Mrs. Bertolomi has had an impact on me due to the fact that she is always looking deeper into things and making you use both sides of your brain. This has inspired my art because I always make sure there is something deeper in everything I make. Mrs. Simonson has allowed me to discover my love for French and all things international. In her class, she always makes you feel not like a student but more of a friend and she always tries to incorporate different techniques of teaching so that everyone can absorb the language. In the beginning of my sophomore year Mrs. Simonson brought in a representative from CIEE. From a young age I knew I always wanted to study abroad and travel but I did not think it was possible until I was older and in college. So when the representative came in it was like my dreams were coming true. In short, I ended up getting a scholarship and was able to study French in the South France for four weeks this past summer which certainly changed my life. I got to meet some new best friends on this program and find out that I want to pursue french in my career in whatever way possible.  For that I am eternally grateful.

    What do you like most about Shore Regional?  There are many factors that come into play when I think of what I like most about Shore Regional. I love the fact that there are so many ways to be involved . Whether in sports, clubs, volunteering through interact or even making murals. I like the fact that no matter who you are or what you do you are always a member of the Shore community. Shore is so small that almost everyone knows everyone which I feel gives a more rewarding experience and better high school experience.

    Activities:  Academically I am in the IB Diploma Program. I am also a part of the Softball and Swim Team. Some of my extra-curriculars are French club, Voices and the vice president of International Club. Outside of school I participate in a version of Santa Lucia in Philadelphia,PA during the fall and also participate in the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association Youth Dramatics Teen Show every summer.

    Future Plans:  To be completely honest, I have no idea whatsoever about where I will be in ten years. All I can hope is that I will go to a good college, be in a line of work in which I am happy and be able to start a family. However, my absolute dream is to be a musician and travel the world so hopefully I will be doing something, if not that exactly then something close to it.

    Michael Adams Name:  Michael Adams

    Grade:  12

    Role Model:  My role model would have to be Derek Jeter. Although I no longer play baseball, Jeter set such a great example to me as I was growing up, and for many others I’m sure. He was a team-first guy, and worked extremely hard through his long, decorated and legendary career to make those around him better, as well as to improve his own skill set. Derek Jeter taught me that there can always be more to accomplish, and that by working to the extent I know I can, I can better myself and those around me.

    Teacher with the most impact:  Mrs. Ensor has had an incredible impact on my career here at Shore Regional. I’ve had Mrs. Ensor twice now: once freshman year and now again senior year, and her class is one that sticks out to me. Although I am not the biggest fan of English, Mrs. Ensor’s style and flexibility within her curriculum have led me to love her class everyday. Another teacher that sticks out to me is Mr. Rankin. Mr. Rankin is always in a fun, energetic mood, which always betters the class. He is very easy to talk to, and makes PE class a great time.

    What do you like most about Shore Regional? What I like most about Shore Regional is the welcoming feeling. Everybody knows everybody, and it is very easy to settle in. All the students are open to new people and the teachers and staff are down to Earth and easy to talk to. Walking into school each morning, I get dozens of “Hello’s” and “Good Morning’s,” and to me that is why I like Shore Regional.

    Activities:  Shore Regional Boys Soccer team

    Future Plans:  In 10 years, I see myself having a job that can provide for me, and I see myself living near the beach with a family. I also see myself being a much better golfer than I am now. I would like to be very close to my immediate and extended family, and also be in touch with all of my friends I have today.
