Happy Valentine’s Day! In honor of this holiday of romance, we’ve asked some teachers to share their words of wisdom on navigating high school love and relationships with you.
Economics Teacher Bryan Wallace
“There’s a 95 percent chance that you’ll be marrying the person you’re dating in high school, so just do anything you possibly can to not let that person go, even if it takes desperate measures. I think that’ll definitely help," said Wallace sarcastically.
Spanish Teacher Catherine Rowland
“I would say to girls, ‘Never change who you are for anyone. You are all perfect the way you are, and you don’t have to conform to anyone. Someone has to conform to you," said Rowland.
English Teacher Jon Karschnik
"I can tell boys this: no matter what she says, she does want something. No matter how much she protests or says ‘You’re broke.’, she does want something for Valentine’s Day. Don’t fumble that," said Karschnik.
Math Teacher Emily O’Dowd
“You’re young. Have fun- maybe not too much fun though," said O'Dowd.
Science Teacher Gretchen Martin
“I married my high school sweetheart, so I don’t know. I’d say, ‘Be friends first, and then let love develop from it,’” said Martin.
Spanish Teacher Jose Franco
“Do your homework before going all in,” said Franco.
