Giving thanks is a concept that is not practiced enough during the month of November. This month is the perfect time to appreciate those who support you and push you to be a better you.
With that being said, this November, PrideTime decided to showcase McMahon students giving thanks to any adult in the building that they are thankful for, the variety of people chosen by students ranges from cafeteria attendants to paraprofessionals but they all have one thing in common. Not only do they help make our school climate better, but they have an individualized relationship with the students that chose them.
Let's take a look into who some of the McMahon students are thankful for this November.
I’m thankful for Mrs. Stockfish because she is always there for me. She lets me stay with her in her office whenever I need too.”
“I’m thankful for Mr. Wagenberg because he is better than any other math teacher I’ve had and he teaches his lessons in ways that are personalized for the individual to understand.”
“I'm thankful for Diamond because she’s always there whenever I need her.”
“Ms. Q is my favorite teacher because she makes her classes fun and enjoyable. I know I can depend on her and she cares about everyone personally, not just grade-wise.”
“Mr. Ingalls lets me rock when I have off days. He’s approachable and always there when I need him.”
“I am thankful for Mr. Mullens because he is free-spirited and I love going into his classroom to talk to him. Even though he isn’t my teacher, he’s so funny and a lot of teachers aren’t interactive but he is, he’s just so fun to be around.”
“Epstein provides interesting topic and viewpoints to his students. He improvises within the classroom and allows us to further our thoughts on his given topics instead of making us follow specific guidelines within the classroom. All in all, Epstein is not only a humorous friendly face but he is also one of the most interesting teachers in the building.”
“Mrs. Peckham relates to everyone my age because she has a daughter within the same age and she makes her classroom fun.”
“I’m thankful for Fleming because he’s always been there for me and he’s funny.”
“I’m thankful for Ms. M because she cares about me and she’s super friendly. She takes her time to teach me important life skills.”
“Eddy is always happy and he always puts a smile on my face by showing his kindness.
I appreciate his enthusiasm, and I think we need more people like him.”
“She’s there to help me through everything, she’s really like a second mom to me. I look up to her.”
All in all, November is known for the ideal time to show how thankful you are to those who support you, however, you should take the time out of your life each day to appreciate those around you. McMahon’s school climate is largely affected by the relationships the students maintain not only with each other but also with the staff. This November spread kindness and gratitude, we here at PrideTime are thankful for all of our readers.
