Teacher: Layne Arakaki
School: Conrad Ball Middle School
Layne Arakaki is my favorite teacher for many reasons. One of these reasons includes that he tries to have a personal relationship with every kid he teaches. On the same token though, he knows the boundary of teacher and friend inside of school. Another reason he is my favorite is because he takes time out of his own life to help out with other school and personal events. He runs Student Council and helps at all the events. He also went to some of my football games and that meant a lot to me. Lastly, he always wants to make sure that everyone is getting the lesson he is teaching, even the kids that don’t seem to care. This is why Layne Arakaki is my favorite teacher.
