What will you miss most about AES? *takes long breath* I think the thing I will miss the most, is the culture of the school which is the way it is because of the people that are here.
How do you hope your students and colleagues will remember you? I hope they will remember a person that valued all the same personalities and goals of the school. A person who was happy with the attitude of the school and how it worked.
What message would you like to leave for the community at AES? To stay a school with the great values it has, stressing importance on openmindedness, equality and so much more that makes this place so special.
What the students had to say.

What’s something unique about her? “She comes and talks to us about how school is going. She talks to us and interacts with us a lot.”
What’s a funny story you have with Ms Coyle? “A funny story I have is that we were hanging out at lunch and we were talking about hair, and then out of nowhere she jokingly pulled on our hair.”

What’s something unique about Ms. Coyle. “She is really welcoming and she hardly ever stays in her office. Instead, she comes out and interacts with students.”

“I’ll remember her as a nice kind teacher who helped me transition from Indian school to this school.”
What’s something unique about her? “She is super friendly, in my old school whenever I used to see my principal then I would always be afraid. MS.coyle is very different”
Whats a story you have with Ms.Coyle? “In sixth grade there was a pool party and it was the first time that I saw a teacher wearing a swimsuit. That would be Ms. Coyle. I did not expect a teacher to be using a swimsuit, especially in front of students. I found it hilarious.”
