My Sister The Super Hero!

My sister Amber has always been my hero, but it was not until lately that I learned she is also a super hero!  Amber is an AP Calculus teacher at Amador High in Pleasanton, California and in addition to molding young mathematical minds she runs the leadership program at the high school.  She oversees students who are responsible for literally ever activity that runs at the school which includes homecoming, prom, rallies, and every aspect involved in planning these events.  When I was in high school I always knew that my teachers were important, but it wasn’t until now that I realized that a teacher’s job does not stop when the bell rings.

 I am amazed by the commitment my sister has for her job and students.   She is determined to not only teach children math, but strives to have them understand the information.  She continually holds extra class hours so that her students fully understand the lessons and tutors students after school.  In addition to all of her math commitments she spends countless extra hours making sure ever school event runs without a hitch.  I do not know how she is able to do it all with so much ease and grace.  After watching the amount she does for her students I can guarantee she is not only my hero, but is the hero of hundreds of others.
