Believing in the next generation of great minds is just one thing a teacher does. They make a positive impact every day, by inspiring students and adults alike. Whether it’s in an English classroom or out on the baseball field, these amazing individuals who have made a grand impact on our lives are the ones we have to thank for all the knowledge we cherish.

Teachers are much more than just educators. They inspire, create, and encourage greatness from the people around them. Whether it’s investing in their students to strive for success or simply by instructing complex ideas that help them grow intellectually. They shape the lives of our community in grand ways and are deserving of an immense amount of recognition, more than what they usually receive. We would like to recognize one of those teachers who has positively influenced the lives of many, and has changed the community for the better: RHS Calculus teacher Don Friesen.

Barbara Reed, substitute teacher at Captain Merriweather High School in Reckless River, Washington, is not having a good day, and that’s even before the school bell rings. Opening lines:
“You may not realize you’re carrying a backpack loaded with beliefs or a tote bag crammed with foregone conclusions, until your baggage collides with that of another … And mine was slamming into Dave Martin’s as he moved into the condo now known as “ours.”

When asked what inspired this Immanuel graduate to pursue a teaching career she responded with, “The teachers whom I worked with encouraged me to return to college and get my teaching credential.

Here at KRL we like to shine the spotlight on those in education who go above and beyond, and it seemed appropriate that our last profile of the school year be of long time English teacher Elizabeth Hardcastle. It also seemed fitting for our anniversary issue, since our first ever teacher profile was of another RHS English teacher, Janet Adams.

“A great man of God.”
“A wonderful and uplifting human being.”
“An awesome teacher.”
All these quotes are to describe one of my favorite people in the community. Jeff March has been at Immanuel for quite awhile serving as a chaplain, a Bible and U.S. History teacher and many other wonderful positions at the school.
