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

“Mrs. Alejandro,” writes Mark Morris 9th grader Jacob Lawhern.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Jacob says, “This teacher takes the time out of her day to care about the well-being of her students, and always brightens up everyone’s day. Her class is both serious, and yet at the same time enjoyable and full of games that are quite fun. I love learning Spanish with her, because she makes it understandable and I don’t feel lost in her class at all.”

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.
