Meet The Students
I originally set out to help the Marketing Committee finish some ideas we had thrown out a while back but quickly discovered how much fun this was going to be. I’m the IT Coordinator here at TST, or one of my favorite nicknames, given to me by a middle school student, “computer wizard”, so normally I’m always behind the scenes and I don’t really get the chance to know the students on a personal level or even their names really. First day in and I am falling in love and amazed by our TST students! For the younger students I just simply asked them the questions and tried to write down their answers as quickly as they were telling them. As I got into the older grades I would hand them the questions on a blank piece of paper and have them write the answers in themselves. I never once had to prompt for a better answer. Half the time I wouldn’t know what they wrote until I got back to my office. It’s week two and I have now interviewed thirteen students and there is simply no doubt about it, they LOVE TST! When they ask me what this is for, I tell them they are going to be “highlighted” on the website. They smile big and you can see how proud they are of themselves, and I feel proud for them. Meet The Students has been a hit so far, and I know each student is now patiently waiting for their turn to be “highlighted” on the website. I hope to eventually have the chance to interview all of our great students!
Here are some of my favorite answers:
WHY WOULD YOU TELL A FRIEND TO ATTEND TST?
I would tell my friend about TST because it's just the BEST SCHOOL EVER, and the food is great, and the teachers are so nice.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TST MEMORY?
My favorite memory was when I learned how to write cursive with shaving cream on my desk.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING A STUDENT AT TST?
Being happy to learn.
WHO IS ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE TEACHERS AND WHY?
Coach Carter, because he makes sure we all get our physical activity and nobody ever complains because we’re always having fun!
