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

“Mr. Forsman,” writes Caleb Selzler, ninth-grader at Mark Morris.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Caleb says, “Math has always been my biggest struggle and most of the time leaves me feeling badly about myself. However, Mr. Forsman has made learning math the perfect balance between challenging and achievable. Something about his teaching style works perfect for me and I have never been as successful at math as I have been this year in Mr. Forsman’s class.”

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.
