Mr. Singer, Mrs. Webb, and Mrs. Greco, Mrs. Silbiger, and Mrs. Galterio we're the most influential during my High School years. They believed in me, helped me through academic and personal times, and were/are some of the greatest teachers I have ever had! I remember when Mr. Singer handed back our first test. He went to each person. He got to me, handed me my B test - for which I was proud - and said, "You can get an A in this class." At the beginning he had high hopes for me. Mrs. Galterio showed me that you can be absolutely terrifying to some, but the most lovable person in the world, all at the same time! Mrs. Webb made my voice do things I never through it could do and allowed me to experience some of the most amazing performances outside the "school bubble. Mrs. Greco, she is the sweetest, most caring and amazing teacher. Every time I go back and visit, I see her and I can't help but cry. She always saw the best in me and knew what I was capable of - and never accepted less. Mrs. Silbiger loved her marine animals. I remember when the Coca-Cola commercial was out with the polar bears and penguins dancing together. She got so mad! We all commented on how cute it was. She said, "It drives me nuts! It's not a curate! Polar bears and penguins have never met! How do you think we still HAVE penguins! No.. No." She did like Finding Nemo. It was accurate. I loved going to charter. I know I commended specific teachers, but they were all great and had a hand in helping make me the person I am today. I'm glad to have been able to learn from them.
