Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life:

Over the past two years Monsieur Bryan Adams, my French teacher, has helped me excel in foreign languages, providing me with supplemental materials, motivation to progress and experience in the foreign language that I am learning.

By providing me with such experiences, I have been able to more effectively communicate with others, open my mind to more easily understand challenging subjects and better prepare myself with time management skills.
