What is your dream job?
My dream job would include kayaking as much as possible, and opening up my own business revolved around kayaking, fitness, and sports.
Who was your favorite teacher or administrator during your time at TMHS? What subject did they teach? What made her or him special?
I’ve had a few favorite teachers in my time here at Tourtellotte, but one that stands out to me was Mr. Ten Eyck. He taught English and he never failed to make his students laugh at least once every class, and he always makes sure to say hello to everyone in the hall.
What is something about TMHS that people might not know, but should?
Something people might not know about Tourtellotte is all the options you have here. People hear “small school” and they assume we don’t offer much, but it is quite the opposite, from sports to music to tech, we offer many things.
What advice would you give to next year’s ninth grade students coming to TMHS?
Advice I would give to the incoming freshman is to not take everything so seriously. Treat everything with respect, but make sure you’re having fun with it too, because you have your whole life to stress about things.
What makes TMHS special? Why?
What makes TMHS special is the fact that 100% of the staff will make sure that everyone is okay and doing their best. This doesn’t just stop academically either, as the teachers will always make sure that you feel okay and are having a good day.
