What ECS teacher has made the biggest impact and why: Kendra Muckey, my 5th grade teacher because she just always seemed happy and made our school lessons fun.

What did you like best about ECS: How determined the teachers were to give us a good education. I also really liked how close everyone got with each other. Our school really is a community, like a family.

Greatest Accomplishment so far: Having the courage to use my many talents every day and being able to accept who I am as a person and being able to see how I can become better. I am also really proud of now I’ve helped people emotionally and physically. I think it’s amazing how I can be there for people.
