Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life: My art teacher, Ms. Stansell, and my AP Chemistry teacher, Ms. Kang, have both had an equally big impact on my time in high school because not only have they taught me a lot, they also made me excited to come to class every day. I will always be grateful for their encouragement and support, and I know I will use what they taught me for years to come.
