Mr. (Terry) Richards is one of my favorite teachers from childhood. I greatly respect and appreciate his approach to teaching. My memories are that he was kind often, disciplined in love when necessary, instructed in faith and allowed his love for Jesus to permeate his actions.

I had a wonderful English teacher my senior year-Mr. Kasparian. He is the reason I decided to teach English, and I was really good at it. I love my job even when it is hard...and it can be. My weekends are not always mine-I have to share them with grading, lesson planning, responding to emails, putting in grades and re-reading novels...but it is worth it.

Scouted prospective colleges? Check. Submitted college applications? Check. Completed FAFSA? Check. Received acceptance letter? Check. Time to sit back and relax. I can cruise now. Wrong. While this may be true, it can be easy for the excitement of your acceptance to cloud your judgment on how to academically wrap up your senior year. These final weeks of your high school career are the most important when it comes to preventing rescinded applications.
When I realized Chaplain was a position and it was something I would be interested in, I immediately got worried because I had not grown up going to Sunday school, nor had I really gotten strong in my faith until the year before. I felt like I was not Christian enough or that people would see right through my inexperience.
At the end of your time in high school, students stress about applying to colleges and finding the right university. This decision is not an easy one to make, and many people make the wrong choice. But when you take responsibility and ownership in your college choice, the end result can end in long-term success.
Some days it feels like I just graduated from Fresno Christian and other days it feels like a lifetime ago. In reality, it has been three years since I graduated and left behind the school that I had come to love in my six years of attendance. Looking back on my time at Fresno Christian, some of my fondest memories are attending football and basketball games, knowing all of my classmates, but mostly my time spent on The Feather.
he reason I came to U.S. because of my curiosity. I used to watch the High School Musical movie from America that was a destiny movie. It was one of the reasons to bring me to U.S. After watching it, I suddenly wondered that I should go to U.S. to figure the education there as well as “escape” the educational prison in my country. In addition, I thought this was also an opportunity for me to reach to the educational system in America and improve my English skills. The idea came to my mind by a chance after watching the American high school movie. Then I started establishing my plan to come to U.S. after passing the interview from U.S Embassy and Consulate in Vietnam in November 2016.
