OCTOBER

Student Name:  Nolyn Feather

1. Go to college to study international studies.
2.  Repetition without improvement is a waste of time. 3. Going to Europe with the AP classes trip.
4. I can walk with my feet at more than a 90 degree angle turned to the side.

Teacher Name: Ms. Ellery

1.  To teach non-fiction and grammar. J/K. I had many great teachers in my public schools and I always admired how they managed to create (and maintain!) a sense of wonder for topics that normally may not interest their students. There's a kind of magic in helping people see things in our world, in our community, and in ourselves that we may not have otherwise noticed. It's really an honor to be able to do this kind of work year after year.
2.  My students and my colleagues
3.  No matter how much you think you know, there is always more to learn. No matter how good you think you are, you can always be better.
4.  My favorite Hale memories are those that happen outside our school walls: traveling to Europe with students, making donuts and candles with students for various fundraisers, NHS students planning an ice skating outing and then not showing up so the two advisers (my now-husband and me) would be forced on a first date.
