Weiss with studentsWho would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mr. Weiss,” writes Preston, Emma, and Aalyssa  who are seventh graders at Monticello Middle School.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Aalyssa says, “He is a good teacher; he is also really funny.”

Preston says, “He is really understanding with how I can get hyper at the end of the day, and he keeps me going. ”

“He has helped me figure out what college I want to go to and has helped me in many other ways. He is also a very nice teacher and accepts my goals,” adds Emma.

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our middle 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.
