Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: I was lucky enough to be in Mr. Speers’ English class my sophomore and junior year. They were the hardest classes at SAS for me, but some of my favorites. Mr. Speers led our classes to have some of the best discussions I’ve had at SAS. He is so passionate about teaching and literature, which makes him an excellent teacher. Writing papers was often a really big challenge for me, but the improvements I made were truly rewarding. 

What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: I miss being around everyone! I miss living with the sophomores on Moss, being with my friends, and saying hi to other St. Andreans in the hallway. Now, we have to reach out virtually to connect with people, so there are many familiar faces that I just don’t get to see anymore. 

Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: For me, the South Pond Trail just narrowly beats the Front Lawn as my favorite place on campus. Over the years, I’ve taken a bunch of solo runs and walks on that trail. It’s been a great place for reflecting and connecting to the natural world. It has been a bucket list goal of mine to go all the way around the pond. While I’m unable to do that before graduation, I will be sure to do it another time I’m back on campus!

Recall in a Decade: One thing that will stick with me after graduation will be the incredible group of faculty members that have gotten to know, supported, and inspired me. Señora, Mrs. Carroll, Mr. Speers, Mrs. Brownlee, Dr. Hyde, Mr. Roach, and many other faculty members have meant so much to my time at St. Andrew’s. It’s amazing how dedicated the faculty are to the students here.
