Star Polisher – Brian Cohen

Who would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mr. Cohen,” writes Farryn Hubbard, tenth-grader at R.A. Long.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Farryn says, “Mr. Cohen is my Biology teacher, and he’s made it very hands-on for the class. We do many labs in AP Bio, which has helped me a lot with the more difficult topics in the class. The notes we take are full of all the necessary information we need, and even use good analogies to further explain the concepts.”

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our middle school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.

Star Polisher – Tim Harris

Tim Harris and GraceWho would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Tim Harris,” writes R.A. Long 10th grader Grace Zacher.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Grace says, “Tim is just so kind and supportive! I see him a lot because I stay after school for theatre things and he always says hi to me and he comes to our shows! He is always so kind to all of us in the theatre department and reminds us that we have supporters and people who love and appreciate what we do, even when it doesn’t feel like it sometimes. Tim is just so awesome! We love Tim!”

Pre-apprenticeship students visit Big C Industries

Students in the district’s pre-apprenticeship program were welcomed on a site visit to Big C Industries in Longview.

Big C Industries General Manager, Matt Montgomery, helped develop the pre-apprenticeship program and continues to support students through experiential learning.

Work site visits benefit students by giving them the chance to see the same technology and equipment they are using in the pre-apprenticeship program in use in the workplace. District Director of Career & College Readiness Jill Diehl said, “It gives students validation that the things they are working on are applicable in the real world.”

Diehl went on to say, “We hope students discover relevance, relevance to what they are learning in the classroom, to the standards we are teaching them and the professional and technical skills. Students are going to see this is what I’m learning in school and this where it will take me in the future.”
