Favorite aspect of your school: The teachers are very supportive and they want everyone to succeed. I also like how our students support us at all of our games no matter how far the drive is.  

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? Every year we went on field trips with Coach Johnson's special ed class and it has been very rewarding because it is nice to see how happy the students get when we help them and we are having a good time with them.
