Mr. Myers because I feel like I can trust him. Over the time that I have known him, he makes me feel like he cares about me as a person and not just a student. I feel like I can learn a lot from him.

The Best Things About My School:

The thing I like the best about my school is building connections with staff members and teachers, along with my friends. I like that at Heath you're able to build a community and have a group you can always go ot. The staff and teachers connect with you on a personal level and make you feel like they care about you and all of your peers at Heath.
