From Edgar Ramirez, Senior, To Ms. Landress
I would like to send my appreciation to Ms. Landress, she is an absolute inspiration to me and a reason why I continue to better myself not only academically but as an individual as well.

I hope that Ms. Landress continues to stay true to herself and any student who is lucky enough to...

Ms. Welch is one of the most entertaining teachers and keeps the class engaged which is really good when we are learning.

From Mr. Fitz To Mr. Dugan
Dugan, thank you for your patient counseling regarding the tiers in the SGO, so we can avoid the other tears. I refuse to learn the readiness groups and you accept me for who I am. Also, you're a very dedicated, compassionate teacher and your students love you--keep doing what you're doing.

From Mr. Fitz To Ms. DeFressine
Erica, thanks for all you do, filling in the blanks, holding some of our hands (even when we don't deserve it), running PDs, going the extra mile, making good and bad jokes, laughing at our bad jokes, putting on drag bingo and domain 4 PD, putting on non-drag bingo and domain 4 PD, all on top of teaching kids. We greatly appreciate all you do!
From Mr. Fitz To Mr. Lenihan
Brian, I appreciate your dedication to teaching and to the kids. And most importantly, I appreciate your positive, generous spirit that you share with us your colleagues. Keep doing what you're doing please!
From Mr. Fitz To Ms. Weston
Dear Weston, I think a couple periods we teach siblings that overlap. And so, I hear you in the background of my student, and I hear you giving them (loving) heck, and it warms my heart. Holding them to a high standard and staying on them day after day, showing tough love. I aspire for the same. Thanks for never giving up!
From Mr. Fitz To Mr. Martinez
Sergio, I appreciate your warm and compassionate approach to the students while still holding them accountable. They know you care and they know you're going to challenge them. Your genuine love and kindness also rubs off on us staff. Can't wait to be in person, across the hall soon enough!
From Mr. Dugan To Ms. Cornwell
Cornwell, thank you for going above and beyond for our students every week. Through advisory, NoH8, and your classroom you give students a space to be their authentic selves when they may not have an opportunity to be that elsewhere. You change the lives of so many of our students, and we all see that everyday. Happy teacher appreciation!
From Mr. Dugan To Mr. Fitz
Fitz, you may send me one too many podcast recommendations but thank you for all you do for our kids. You push our students to levels they did not know they were capable of getting to and work to unlock their self-efficacy. It is one of the most empowering things our students can learn and believe and it is what I see in your classroom everyday. Great job, learn how to do some math maybe...
From Ms. DeFressine To Ms. Assis
Deb I made a really great video and it’s telling me it’s too large to add the file so I’m going to just text it to you. Lol
From Mr. Dugan To Mrs. Harries-Gonzalez
Harries! Thank you for being the best mentor teacher and for always going above and beyond for our students!! You push our kids to achieve and succeed and always find ways to contribute to our school culture! Thank you for all of your work for our kids but also being so kind to me! I appreciate it all!- Baby Bear
From Mr. Dugan To Mrs. DeKramer
Thank you for making me laugh every A100 and reminding me everything is going to be okay. I appreciate your leadership, humor, and showing me the ropes. You are the best and miss you!!
From Ms. Klarissa Garcia To All PASE Staff
I just want to take a moment and thank each and everyone of you who have made this transition seamless and effortless for me. I am so appreciative of how welcoming you all are, even in this virtual setting, and the amazing culture you've all built at PASE. Thanks for being YOU! Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
From Ms. Cornwell To Ms. Kush
You have gone from my work bestie to my life bestie, and I don't care how much you hate that word. I don't know what I'd do without you, and I am so thankful for you every single day. Thank you for always being there for me; you are truly the best of the best.
From Ms. Cornwell To Mr. Dugan
Doogz, You make me laugh every single day, you remind me to keep it together when I'm being crazy, and you've always got my back. I'm so grateful that the students have you as a role model and that I have you as a friend!
From Ms. Cornwell To Mr. Fitz
Fitzy, It's taken me a couple years to figure out when you're joking and when you're serious, but I think I've finally got it. Between all the crazy things you say, I feel like I'm always learning from you, and for that I am really thankful. Thanks for being such a great friend!
From Ms. Cornwell To Ms. L. Garcia
What would I do without you!? I love how we work so seamlessly as a team, whether it's in the classroom or creating advisory plans together. I'm sure you have some Zodiac sign reasoning behind us getting along so well, and I love you for it. Thank you for being so wonderful!
From Ms. Cornwell To Mrs. Welch
This school just wouldn't be the same without you. You are simultaneously tough and kind, and you make the combination of the two seem so easy. You push us all - the kids and the adults - and in doing so, you make all of us better. I truly appreciate you.
