I had Mrs. Sarsfield as an English teacher my junior year of high school. She is an amazing teacher and an amazing person! I also know Jess Bousa. He has changed Havre De Grace so much in such a small amount of time. I'm proud to say that these people have impacted my life! Along with many others! Rachel Thompson

Mrs Sarsfield was one of my favorite teachers in high school that I never actually had! Always kind, forgiving, creative and fun! Thank you for being you :)
