Star Polisher – Steve Kloke

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

“Mr. Kloke,” writes two Mark Morris tenth-graders, Mikayla Taylor and Simon St. Martin-Shook.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Mikayla says, “Mr. Kloke has been so helpful in A.P. United States History this year. He is one of the most dedicated teachers I’ve ever encountered. Every day, he approaches his job by asking himself if he is committed to doing his best and helping his students. Constantly, he is offering his assistance to us before and after school, and providing whatever resources he can to make a very difficult class more manageable. Mr. Kloke has been an essential figure in my education this year, and I am so grateful to have him as a teacher!”

Simon says he’s grateful to Mr. Kloke for “pushing me beyond what I thought I could do.”

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.

Star Polisher – Shawn Perkins

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

“Mr. Perkins,” writes Julisa Moses, 9th grader at Mark Morris.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Julisa says, “I remember the first day of freshman year (because I’m still a freshman) coming in scared of being the only girl surrounded by so many guys with arms as big as me. The first workout wasn’t that hard but as we progressed and moved into more of the lifting, I was frightened. Mr. Perkins didn’t push me as much as he pushed the others but he pushed me to my limit. Perkins taught me without even knowing that you can push someone to their limit, even when you think there isn’t one. I never was pushed enough to the point I couldn’t stop but when I was in his class I pushed and was thankful with my result instead of feeling I should’ve tried harder. He taught me what people say – live life to your fullest or live with no regret.”
