What are your plans after high school? I plan to attend the University of Indianapolis and major in visual arts education so in the future I can become a high school art educator and I will minor in marketing.
What is your favorite memory from LHS? My favorite memory from LHS is by far the senior art show. Getting prepared for it and taking the field trip to hang everything up at the gallery was an amazing experience. The opening night for the show was better than I could have ever imagined. Everyone there was there to appreciate art and learn more about the people behind the beautiful works of art. It felt like an artist graduation and it was incredible!
Who was your favorite teacher & why? My favorite teacher has to be Mrs. Patmore. I’ve had her classes for the past four years and she’s more than just a teacher to me at this point she’s become a role model. Mrs. Patmore along with other teachers have heavily influenced my decision to become a teacher. Patmore is an amazing educator that understands her students and constantly pushes them to do their best. When I feel like there is no one else to talk to I know I can go to her and she will listen without feeling burdened. I will miss leaving the high school and not seeing her everyday but I know that we’ll stay in touch and I hope to become as great of a woman, an educator, and a caring individual as she is.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? In ten years I see myself graduated from college, working as a teacher, having a few cats, and being married. I also really want to go to Disney Land within that time period because I’ve never been and that’s been a dream of mine for a very long time.
What is your advice for the Class of 2019? You should not push yourself to constant exhaustion; instead you should push yourself to reach your best and harvest that greatest potential. You can’t do anymore than your absolute best. Don’t let the dreaded “senioritis” get to you that much; you will definitely experience it and that’s okay, you just can’t let it affect your worth ethic. Don’t slip senior year; finish all these years of school strong.
