No teacher, from my experience at RHS, lived up to the ideal educator that we students create from our own capricious expectations. That’s fair.

At this point, during ROAR, I walked up to my teacher to ask him if I could use the restroom as I had done at this same...

A couple months into the summer of my senior year, I received an email reminding me to schedule an appointment for my senior pictures from Bill Smith Photography.
