    Teachers: For the most part all my teachers are very approachable and are there if I need them. A few teachers have been there way too long that I feel they have lost the interest in teaching. Or I feel perhaps they should go back to school or so called workshops to motivate them to want to teach in a different manner or teach by using a more modern approach. Usually in my experience the younger teachers are more eager to make sure that you are learning and eager to go the extra mile to help you pass. But overall my experience at Kilgore High has been good. My coaches have always been real inspiring and have pushed me to succeed.
