His favorite teacher: I can easily say my Junior Year AP Language and Composition teacher, Laura Hancq, has been the best teacher and mentor I’ve ever had.  Although I only had Ms. Hancq for a year, she taught me more about literature and creative expression than I could’ve ever asked for.  Ms. Hancq is the kind of teacher who is in it for more than a paycheck; she is genuinely invested in the lives of her students and wants nothing more than to see them succeed beyond their wildest dreams.  For everything she has taught me, I thank her with all my heart.

One piece of advice for incoming freshmen:  Participate in any and all activities available to you, whether or not you think you will like them- you may surprise yourself, and will undoubtedly meet friends to last a lifetime.

What she appreciates most about going to a Catholic high school:  I appreciate that we are able to learn about religion and participate in mass.  I grew up going to public school and it was a welcome change when I got to a Catholic high school.
