Thank You, Teachers!

Students submitted notes of appreciation for staff from all departments at the end of the 2020-2021 school year.

June 7, 2021

The Pow Wow Editorial Board sent a survey to the students in April requesting that they submit notes of appreciation for members of the teaching staff, particularly teachers whom students felt went “above and beyond.” The Editorial Board received over 100 responses from sophomores, juniors, and seniors, demonstrating the magnitude of the positive impact felt by students this school year. The notes are listed below in alphabetical order by department. We hope the teaching staff enjoys reading them and feels uplifted by the words of these very grateful students.

Thank you to Ms. Bryan, Mrs. Williams, Dr. Dulin and Mrs. Franco for constantly setting the standard for black women in education and doing it so gracefully. I can speak for my fellow classmates when we say that you’ve been our outlet for frustration about constant struggles we face and have shared your experiences to reassure us that we are not alone. Thank you for always looking out when no one else was paying attention.

Dear Ms. B, thank you for making this year way easier! You made every assignment very simple to access and do.

If you are reading this at the end of the year, I hope you have a great summer and have lots of time to relax because sometimes you seem stressed lol. 

Jose Medrano, 11th grade

To Mrs. Buonaspina, 

Honestly, I don’t know where I would be without your class last year. I’m so glad I had you as a teacher. You provided the best safe space for us! I don’t think I would have discovered a love for social justice and international relations (AND NEWSIES!) without that one newspaper assignment and honestly? I felt pretty radicalized taking your class overall. LOL! I enjoyed every moment of my 11th grade year thanks to you and our field trips and the pep rally…I don’t know if I would have had an 11th grade experience without everything we did, ugh I feel so emotional even writing this! Also, if you see any spelling errors in this, no you didn’t <3

Jason Campos, 11th grade 


To Mr. Jackson, 

Hi, I was a really big fan of your puns and thought they were punny…Thanks for being a great teacher and sorry for the awkward moments when no one answered. It’s not that I didn’t want to answer, it’s just that I was typing in the chat and by the time I was finished, you moved on and it wouldn’t have made sense if I sent it but I answered in my heart. 

Natalie Benitez, 10th grade

Tatiana Donayre, 12th grade 


To Mrs. Kennedy, 

Apart from teaching the necessities of English, Mrs. Kennedy has given students the opportunity to try and incorporate individualism within each student. This includes being open to discuss topics, creating our own pieces of writing, and expanding our horizon on topics based off interpretations. Most of all, she is encouraging, supportive, and has an easy-going personality that enables students to easily connect with her.

You took a lot of time from your free time to help me and help other students solve our internet or connection problems. Therefore, you are greatly appreciated. You make us feel like we are in the classroom even though we are clearly not, and I think that helps students realize that learning online is still possible, it will be difficult but not impossible.

Adriana Flores, 12th grade 


To Mr. Tims,  

I cannot thank Mr. Tims enough for his hard work this year. Facing a pandemic, Mr. Tims went beyond making sure we learned everything in school and at home, and also making sure we were okay. Every day, from the start of the period to the end, he has the energy to teach us and while he may sometimes say he feels tired, he always has the passion to teach us.

I think you’re an amazing teacher, you put a lot of work into your lessons.

To Mr. Schnakenberg, 

Mr. Schnakenberg is really helpful for many reasons. One, he kind of makes the classes a bit fun and two, he makes a video in every assignment so when school ends and we have no idea what to do the video helps us know how to do it. He makes us learn well.
