I would like to recognize: Brandon Mauro (Mr.B)
For (shout out/comment): Mr.B is always kind and understanding. If there’s something we need help with, he’s always willing to help; and is very flexible, as well. Also, all teachers have a bad day at some point, but he’s always so upbeat and cheerful that it’s impossible to not smile, too. Plus, being in the industry, he has a TON of experience with Drama, and a variety of things that stem off of it. So, with that knowledge, it makes things a lot easier to learn, and a lot more interesting, too. Overall, Mr.B is an AMAZING teacher, and I believe that he should be recognized for his hard work and effort.

For (shout out/comment): 02/15/18 ~ After all the sad news yesterday, it was just what I needed to see as I came into school at 6:45AM…Many students gather in the corners of the building by our entrance, doing homework or just chatting. As I walked in today, I see a coffee cup, a rolling cart and a bright flashlight… It was Tracy Erickson, sitting on the cement, with her iPhone flashlight helping a student with math. #WEAREROYAL! THANK YOU TRACY FOR BEING YOU!

I would like to recognize: Ms. Megargel
For (shout out/comment): I want to recognize Ms. Megargel for always being a kind and really amazing teacher. She teaches her lessons thoroughly and clearly. People learn math at different paces, so sometimes you will have to do some research on your own, or ask your teacher questions, go to tutoring, etc… But Ms. Megargel already gives a thorough lesson and demonstration for it. She gives students plenty of opportunities to learn the material and practice it in class, so we don’t get as much homework as I thought I would get this year. Plus, she is a really kind and sweet teacher! She is so easy to get along with and laugh with. All in all, she is just an AMAZING teacher, and she just deserves to be recognized for just that reason! Have A good day, to whomever this concerns.

For (shout out/comment): I shout out Mr. Inman for being a great teacher! He always makes sure everyone understands the topic thoroughly – he even goes as far as providing extra activities like videos so we have a better understanding of our goal. I personally have thought of history/ social studies/ civics to be bland, but with Mr. Inman teaching, I’ve enjoyed every ounce of it! Thank you Mr. Inman, for making civics more enjoyable for all of us.
