“I was never a fan of the science part of [his physics class]. But the way he taught it and the way he allowed you a lot of freedom with projects was what I really liked about it. As a teacher, he is so chill about everything. We were supposed to make posters of Galileo, but the poster I made of Galileo was so ridiculous that he let me make it and put it up on his wall.”

Chad Brown

“I think the main thing [I do is] provide a safe space for her, encourage the abilities she has and not discourage her because science is not her thing. I wanted to encourage her to be involved and she ended up joining the Science Olympiad team.”

“In my Advanced Ceramics class junior year, it was [Matyak] and five other seniors. It was just the best class, where she would talk to you and tell stories. I think that entire time I was just invested in her.”

Erica Matyak

“My favorite memory is the collective memory of the banter that we’ve had because she’s a student that I can say anything to and she’s not going to be offended, and we can tease each other and joke around.”

“She’s taught me how to prioritize my time and [how] to figure out what I should be focusing on most.”

“Once he finally joined choir, his junior year, he’s been super active. He has the type of personality that is very outgoing, so it’s really easy to get to know him. [Because of this he] immediately became a leader in chorale last year.”

“I think he found something that he really loved that he didn’t realize he loved until he was a part of it.”
