Mrs. Lane and Maya

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

“Mrs. Lane,” writes Mark Morris 11th grader Maya dela Rosa-Carter and 10th grader Jennifer Rodriguez.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Jennifer says, “Mrs. Lane makes time to ask every student if they understand the content.”

Maya says, “Mrs. Lane is an excellent teacher. She teaches me to challenge myself to improve my math skills. She has made a difference in my life because she makes math fun for me and helps me to feel more confident in the subject. I am also thankful that she is easy to talk to. She will always answer any questions and go out of her way to help a student. I never feel like she isn’t able to help me. Lastly, Mrs. Lane is very kind. I think this is super important when it comes to being a teacher because you don’t want to scare off your students. Mrs. Lane is extremely kind and I am so honored she got to be my teacher this year. She is a truly a ‘star polisher’.”

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.
