Calise Gillespie, 10th grade

“Without my teacher, I wouldn’t have the courage or patience to get good grades in his class. Whenever I’m in a bad mood, he talks to me and makes me smile. I wouldn’t be as successful in his class if he wasn’t providing the support he has. He has inspired me to become a civil engineer and to go to college. Even though I struggle, I know he believes in me and that’s why I will push my hardest through all the tears and stressful days. I have never had a teacher as great as Mr. Vogeler and I appreciate his help and encouraging acts.”
