Behind the Scenes: Teachers

    Have you ever been curious about what goes on behind-the-scenes with your teachers? Ever have those constant
questions of what their lives are like, what silly habits they  have, and what advice they’d give you if they had the chance?
Their world is not merely teaching, sleeping, teaching, sleeping, and so on - but a entertaining cycle of fun, friends, and family.

 

    Douglas Ericson, Spanish teacher at KHS says, “I check Instagram too many times in one day and then get disappointed
if I don't get over 100 likes on a post.” These posts are often pictures of his family and himself. Now how’s that for keeping
with the modern trends? Speaking of staying up-to-date one what the millennial generation is up to, one of our Biology teachers,
Tasha Chadaz relates to students in a more common way: “I am phenomenal at taking naps! I can fall asleep just about
anywhere, at any time!” Chadaz says. Wouldn’t we all love to have that kind of talent? 

    One of the most un-thought of things teenagers could ask a teacher is what advice they’d like to give to their students if
they could. According to John Stachowicz, “You are under construction for the rest of your life; you will constantly change,
sometimes to the better, sometimes for the worst, no one has to stay the way they are, it is up to
you in the end just who you will be.”
Not only is this inspiring, but essential to the upcoming generations to learn and understand because as teenagers, we are lost in who
we feel like we must be. With this advice, it will become easier to realize that we won’t find who we are without trying. Teachers are
some of the wisest, most interesting people you will ever meet; never miss out on the opportunity to get to know some of
your teachers better.
