Who’s your star polisher? “Ms. Hanna Burleson.” Why? “She ALWAYS believes in me and tells me that I am good enough when I am falling down,” writes Tristian Lumsden, a student at R.A. Long High School. “She is just a happy person to be around. She accepts me 110%, and even though she currently does not have me as a student, she is an amazing influence, and she inspires me to give my best.”

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our high school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.
