Dear Sophie, Quinn, Alayna, Melany and Kat:
Teaching you has been a true blessing. I am grateful to you all for your endless encouragement. We were new to the high school together and have, in many ways, shared the experience. You have cheered me on in life’s joyous moments and provided comfort in its tragedies.
As the end of the year quickly approaches for Wesleyan, the Artist Market is an event that cannot be skipped over. The Artist Market is a community wide event for both Wesleyan and the city of Peachtree Corners.
“The Artist Market is unique in that exhibiting artists are present during this event, showcasing their fine art for purchase and interacting and engaging with attendees. Proceeds from the show benefit the Wesleyan Arts Alliance which supports student programs, facilities and arts education at Wesleyan School” (Wesleyan Artist Market).
Ending the last softball season with a State Championship set the bar high for the 2018 season; however, the Wesleyan Softball season has gone above and beyond with their season so far.
The team kicked off the road to state with a Region Championship win for the sixth year in a row, and they are entering into the state tournament in the first seed. The Wolves defeated Landmark Christian School 7-2 and junior Madison Kerpics pitched the entire games, “while striking out 18 people to earn the win in the circle” (Gwinnett Prep Sports). “Our team really worked together to win the region game. Everyone played well and our ability to work together is what really helped us throughout that game and the season,” said senior Savannah Sommer. The win for the team was impressive, but what came with the win was even better. “After the game, we got new golden cleats as a deal with our coaches, which was almost as great as winning the game,” said senior Jennifer Nolan.
- Where did you go to college/what is your degree? Oglethorpe University in Brookhaven, Ga. And a B.S. in Biology.
- What made you want to work at Wesleyan? After I interviewed, I wanted to work at Wesleyan because. . . It is the best place to work, I met incredible people, we can worship and talk about God here, I like green and gold, I love biology and environmental science, and the teaching position available was for those courses, It is close to home and It was an answer to a prayer.
- What are three things you can’t live without? God, a planner, and coffee.
- If your life were a movie, what actor would you cast as yourself? My life would not be a movie. It would be a book because some things can’t be captured in movies. Words are more powerful and descriptive. If my life were a book, I would like F. Scott Fitzgerald or King Solomon to write that book.
- What is something you wish you had done in high school?
- If you weren’t a teacher, what would you do? Be a student. I love to learn.
- Where is the coolest place you have ever traveled? Charleston, SC. It was my honeymoon destination. Also, Charleston is beautiful and historic. It’s like traveling back in time with a lot of color.
