A lot of people have come and gone in my life. But there are a few people that remain. One, being my teacher from 7th grade. His name is Mr. McKiernan. He is the kind of person you can go back to for help. The only teacher I have had that’s always concerned with how I am doing in school. He is the only one that believes in me and says he expects more from me. Mr. McKiernan has suffered because of budget cuts and was moved to a new school. When I get the chance i go to visit. More teacher cuts might possibly mean that Mr. McKiernan will not get the chance to inspire his students in the future.
