From derivatives to dystopian societies, Anney is soaking up her George School education.

Are there teachers or classes that made a big impact on you?

Learning AP Chemistry and biology from Pascal Lanciano has changed my perspective on biological sciences and led me to become interested in the field of biochemistry and molecular biology as a future career.

Last year my most interesting teacher was Joelle Sanphy ’08. In her English class, IB HL Literature 1, we got to explore and discuss a dystopian novel of our own choice in group. It was a lot of fun. We ended the section with making dystopian societies of our own. My logo design for my group’s dystopian society was chosen and printed on stickers for the class.

My math class was calculus BC taught by Travis Ortogero, who is a really interesting teacher. His method focuses on hands-on (more like brain-on) learning. In the beginning of the year, I struggled a bit understanding all the concepts, but I ended up getting to know the material really well.
