Picture yourself in a large class with no one you know and it’s your first day of sophomore year. You just moved here. Now picture yourself with a new teacher you don’t know who the minute she steps in that door, she completely baffles you with the pink and her fantastic fashion sense. What you don’t know is that she will make you go beyond your comfort zone and eventually you’ll be like a family in that class because of her.

That’s Mrs. Thedford’s job. As that very pink-happy teacher, it is her responsibility to oversee the publication of the school newspaper, yearbook and this news site. She is not afraid to push her students to do their very best on these publications. There is never a day where we are not busy because of her. She is not afraid to hang out on the students’ level and talk with them like a friend.

She has two beautiful little girls who will make you melt at the sight of them and a husband who has been known to jump right in and support the Raiders whether it is hanging a yearbook banner or building a larger than life mum for the homecoming parade. She has been the WEHS journalism teacher since the school began, so literally since the beginning of time, Raider time that is! At least, I’m hoping she does considering I’m just her student webmaster, Tiffany Ing, who wrote this for her because she knew the awesome person who changed her future career to journalism would portray her fairly and accurately!
