Ayzia’s favorite classes span varied subjects, but they have one thing in common: inspiring teachers.

Is there a class or classes that made a big impact on you?

Over my last three years, I have taken some phenomenal classes, one of which was AP US History with Brendan Mahon. He often made the class interactive, which caught my attention, and when he taught American history he did not sugarcoat the troubling past.

I have never been good at math, but my math class was one of my favorites last year. Using any means necessary, my teacher would not let me fall behind, and this dedication made the class quite engaging.

Describe an exciting moment at George School.

At the end of my sophomore year, I submitted a video for the Quaker leadership project. I worked very hard on the video, but I did not think it would win. Then in one of the most exciting moments of my life, I found out I had won!
