Susan Edmonds is the newest teacher and member of Valley High school. She has had such big shoes to fill that Terry has left. Terry was a very beloved teacher throughout the years he taught at Valley High School.
Throughout meeting all her new coworkers and new students, she has learned a lot from everyone around her. She looks at each of her students with a blank slate and creates no prejudices. Her only objective with each student is to find their potential and learn about who they are to fully understand them as a person.
She teaches language arts and humanities. She has never taught a humanities class before, but she says she is always up for a new challenge and to experiment with different subjects. “I constantly hear so many good things about Terry, I have always wanted to meet this guy.”, she told me this after I asked her if she ever had the chance to meet Terry. She doesn’t let his ‘legacy’ deter her from trying her hardest to get the attention of her students and tries to teach them all kinds of different things.
“The students here are very interesting and I cannot imagine what some of them have been through after I read what they’ve written in their journals.”
So many people have reacted many different ways to her replacing their previous teacher, but she is still adamant about making a lasting impression on the students that she has had the pleasure of teaching for.
