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.”

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our middle 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.

Star Polisher – Jerry Forsman

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

“Mr. Forsman,” writes Caleb Selzler, ninth-grader at Mark Morris.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Caleb says, “Math has always been my biggest struggle and most of the time leaves me feeling badly about myself. However, Mr. Forsman has made learning math the perfect balance between challenging and achievable. Something about his teaching style works perfect for me and I have never been as successful at math as I have been this year in Mr. Forsman’s class.”

Pre-apprenticeship students visit Big C Industries

Students in the district’s pre-apprenticeship program were welcomed on a site visit to Big C Industries in Longview.

Big C Industries General Manager, Matt Montgomery, helped develop the pre-apprenticeship program and continues to support students through experiential learning.

Work site visits benefit students by giving them the chance to see the same technology and equipment they are using in the pre-apprenticeship program in use in the workplace. District Director of Career & College Readiness Jill Diehl said, “It gives students validation that the things they are working on are applicable in the real world.”

Diehl went on to say, “We hope students discover relevance, relevance to what they are learning in the classroom, to the standards we are teaching them and the professional and technical skills. Students are going to see this is what I’m learning in school and this where it will take me in the future.”

Keep it up!
