Christian Life High School
Parents: Joseph and Linda Taylor of Pleasant Prairie
Most memorable high school moment: I went to Paris, France, on an educational trip with my French teacher, who happens to be my mother, and other students in the school. Not only did my French improve, but my understanding of the French culture and history improved as well. I plan to return this year on spring break to continue to explore Paris and learn the language and culture. Going on the trip has strengthened my passion for the French language, culture, and people.
Most influential teacher: Mr. Ramon Flores
Class taught: AP Computer Science
Please explain why: Mr. Flores has taught me fascinating aspects of computer science, but has also taught me life skills. His dedication and care for the students has inspired me to show that same dedication and care to all. He has been a model to me displaying what a man should look like.
