Who would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mr. Cohen,” writes Farryn Hubbard, tenth-grader at R.A. Long.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Farryn says, “Mr. Cohen is my Biology teacher, and he’s made it very hands-on for the class. We do many labs in AP Bio, which has helped me a lot with the more difficult topics in the class. The notes we take are full of all the necessary information we need, and even use good analogies to further explain the concepts.”

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.
