ALVS Online High School Teachers, You Make a Difference
“The best teachers are those who show you where to look but don’t tell you what to see.”
– Alexandra K. Trenfor
Thank you ALVS teachers for all you do – from grading work, to providing feedback, and answering countless questions. The work you do with your students is important. You build meaningful relationships with your students without seeing them face-to-face. Your positive impact is evident in the following words of students and parents you have worked with.
“Thank you [Roxanne Nesis] so much for grading all my assignments and giving me tips on how to improve my Spanish! I really learned a lot this semester and now feel confident using Spanish in public scenarios. […] I am going to Mexico over spring break and am excited to try out my Spanish. Thanks again for the great feedback and tips!”
“I’d like to thank you [Danielle McHugh] for whatever miracle you performed that caused Colin to enjoy an English class … Colin talks to me about what he’s doing in the class and has been excited about learning”
“I would like to say thank you [Melissa Humphrey] for being my teacher in this case. It has a great experience especially because this is my first online class I have ever taken so it has taken a lot of getting used to compared to the traditional classroom. Thank you for being an understanding teacher and grading all my [AP Psychology] assignments! I greatly appreciate it!”
“He is actually enjoying history for the first time … It just goes to show that a teacher [like Kristine Wedington] can reach a student even if they don’t see each other every day in a typical classroom. He will now enjoy history the rest of high school”
“The teachers have been prompt and helpful and the flexibility it gives us to travel [to the Cayman Islands and Switzerland] … with our family is invaluable.”
“Mrs. Ojerio has been such a wonderful teacher and has helped Wylee to flourish in a subject that he was nervous to take. She has been super supportive, patient and confident that Wylee will succeed. […] I have no doubt that he is learning and will be successful in high school because of Apex’s teachers and curriculum.”
