“I will miss all my teachers. I appreciate my toughest teachers because they pushed me to become a better student and role model for my class. My sophomore geoscience class with Ms. Ferraro was probably my toughest class at New Trier. She was a tough grader, but I believe I needed somebody like Ms. Ferraro to challenge me in class everyday. She’s friendly, kind, and funny. I am beyond appreciative of all the teachers who challenged me during my four years because it has helped me grow as a student and person.”
