15 Original Staff Members Left In School's 15th Year

      Social studies teacher Bob Buck, J.D., started his first year of teaching during the school’s first year, after leaving his 10-year role as a lawyer. Buck said that while his former job was a decent profession, it didn’t compare to the classroom environment. 

     “I feel very fortunate to teach here,” Buck said. “I think I have the greatest job in the world, and I truly mean that.” 

     At the beginning of his teaching career, Buck taught World History to freshmen. As time went on, he taught AP U.S. History and AP World History. While Buck eventually started teaching Government, a class he said he felt most comfortable with, he valued his experience teaching other classes. 

     “That really broadened my horizons,” Buck said. “If I had gone directly to Government, I wouldn’t have been as well versed.” 

     Buck said that a constant each year was the challenge of saying goodbye to his students. 

     “Every year I think it’s never going to get any better than this,” Buck said. “I love these kids. I know they’re excited to go to college, but I miss them. It’s never going to be the same. Then the next year starts, and it starts all over again.”
