What feedback or suggestions do you have for the teachers working with our graduating seniors?
Well, I was the first student with Special Needs at our school and Wilma Hamstra basically took me “from crayons to perfume” along with some wonderful EA’s Jo Heersink, Melanie Tamminga, Corine Postma and Alison Wassink. Melanie taught me to play basic piano and I still enjoy that today!
