During the week of week May 7-11, 2018, Midlothian High School celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week, dedicated to showing appreciation for Midlo’s outstanding, hard-working teachers. Teaching is not an easy job to pursue, and it takes a certain sort of passion, charisma, and dedication to maintain this career. Every teacher at Midlothian High School is unique in his or her own way, and every teacher has a different impact on students. Teachers provide students with an idea of what they aspire to do with their lives and motivate them towards that goal. Every young adult needs a knowledgeable guide to help them through high school and set them on the right path, and teachers fill this role for many students. As Midlo’s 2017-2018 Teacher Appreciation Week comes to a close, the students reflect on some of the Midlo teachers who have made the greatest impact on their lives and why.
