Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life:  Dr. Buzen, my chemistry professor for the past two years, pushed me to become a student who 100% determines my grades myself. His arduous classes taught me how to study, work, ask for help and truly earn my A in all of my classes. The studying skills I learned from chemistry have been applied to all of my classes, and I would not be pushing myself as rigorously if I hadn’t been exposed to the true benefits of working hard for an A.
