I will remember how excited she always was to teach us about a new topic and how much I learned in her class. I will remember how she taught us to take a photo with all the composition elements. I will remember the classroom filled to the brim with work from past classes. Furthermore, I will remember when she taught us how to incorporate themes during the peace project that I spent way too much time on just trying to decide on my image. I remember taking too many photos during spring break because I enjoyed her class and was excited to learn new photography techniques. What makes this teacher unique? Ms. Strever is unique because she is so energetic. Every time I walked into her class she would always be filled with excitement as if teaching a class was her source of energy like it was never monotonous and always new. Like every class was is a completely new world just waiting to be seen. Like every class was a surprise to her even as she taught it. I felt she was seeking to learn and understand the students, every student in every class. Aiden, Grade 7 What is your favorite moment with this teacher?
