What year did you graduate from WEHS?

I graduated in 2014.

What were you like as a student?

I was stressed, goofy, and laughed at really dumb jokes. (I still do though honestly)

What is the biggest difference you have noticed at the school since you were a student here?

I’ve noticed that there’s a lot more clubs and organizations than I remember.

Why did you decide to become a teacher at WEHS?

I became a teacher because it seemed like fun after subbing. I liked it and wanted to do more. I enjoy seeing students learn and what they can create.

If you had to go through high school all over again what would you do differently?

I would probably not want to go through it again, but also I would probably try not to date anyone and actually use all the free time I had at that point in my life to teach myself new things.
