On Academics: The teachers I had through out my high school years were people I cherished greatly. One of my favorite teachers would have to be my economics teacher. He has been considered "hard" and "strict" but my brother told me to just do the work and I would be fine. None of the classes at my high school were really that difficult, you just had to put the time and effort into it.
