Pronouns: she/her

I am a junior, and this is my third year on staff. I decided to join the Pathfinder my freshman to expand my writing knowledge and experience. Now, I look forward to working with my Pathfinder family and writing about others' experiences. I strive to do my best, so at the end of the day, even if I didn’t complete everything I wanted, I can still look back and say I tried my hardest. I love writing, photography, knitting and cooking. Along with working on the Pathfinder, I am also in the National Honor Society, Book Club and ASL Club. For me writing is a relaxer; I love being able to write and express myself, other peoples’ experiences and help inspire change.

Sitting in her at-home office, Spanish teacher Sonya McGowin prepares to converse with her students. After teaching middle school students for 13 years, McGowin adjusted to teaching at a higher level. “It doesnt feel that different, except for the difference of virtual learning,” McGowin said. “High school students are more focused, [and] the course is more challenging.”
