People who have been an inspiration to me include: Brice Henry
Because: He has been prevalent in my life since he started working at WL-S in my 8th grade year, and his energy and devotion to what activities he does has inspired me to be as passionate as him in something in my life.
Lately, I have been reading: Hamlet, thanks Mr. Lynxwiler.
My advice to parents: Treat your kids how you would of wanted your parents to treat you, but don’t raise a spoiled brat either.

Because: they work diligently to educate and care for others. It’s because of them that I decided I wanted to become a teacher and want to devote myself to serving others.
