    "My experiences with the teachers I've had for the past three years were really helpful in one way or the other, such as explaining contents to me and answering confusing questions. I've had a few teachers who are very motivational and inspiring as well."

    "With an exception of two teachers I've had in all four years of my attendance at Central high school, the teachers are the best. They are well rounded, helpful, knowledgeable people who do genuinely care for their students. They do the most they can to help us, even if the problem is not school related. I have even seen a teacher pass out a $20 bill in the hallway to a hungry student. They are people, not robots, and they act as such. They are humorous people who enjoy jokes and leisure time just as much as the students do."

    "Many teachers are easy to access and talk to. They help students out when they need help. The teachers know how to deal with tough situations. Also, they are understandable."

    "There are a variety of teachers, some I like and dislike. An example of a teacher I like was my 10th grade geometry honors teacher. She always cared for us and made sure we were on top of our game. She gave us homework everyday, which I didn't mind because I actually understood what I was learning. Contrast from my algebra 2 honors teacher I had in 10th grade. He wasn't a horrible teacher, but his lessons were never interesting or easy to understand. His lessons tend to be textbook lessons, which I could have easily taught myself than hearing it from my teacher. So, in my opinion, there are some teachers I truly love, but some, I just don't understand."
