A Letter From the Editor

Dear Readers,

The Arlington Career Center strives to be a foundation of our community. Teachers and students alike come together and support one another in and outside of times of need. Whether it’s Mr. Darragh handing out high fives and salutations in the hallway or Freya Olsen hosting inclusive diversity and disability chats to open hidden perspectives to everyone, it’s the little things that we do to help each other through the day. Especially as the third quarter begins, snow begins to melt, and students run low on academic motivation (hit with a bad case of senioritis, in my case), it’s important to acknowledge these bright moments that keep us going.

Here are some of the little things I see:

  • Dr. Marcille’s commitment to understanding and teaching her students.
  • Sophia Lander’s unwavering support of my crazy ideas.
  • Ms. Maskeloney’s belly ache-inducing jokes.
  • Laila Hailey’s willingness to always help me with my homework.

I implore you readers to take the time to notice the little things that keep you going.

I hope you enjoy our winter edition of the ACC Chronicle!
