Senior Spill ’23

Welcome to the 2022-2023 “Senior Spill” in which teachers share their thoughts about the 2023 graduating class!


Oh, the Class of 2023! Thank you for always being willing to chat about the TV shows you’ve been watching, the books you’ve been reading, and the music you’ve been listening to. You have done a really good job of making me feel old. I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to teach you. Go do something fun with your freedom!  


It is hard to imagine BIM without this class. I have known a handful of you since you were in 7th grade. You haven’t changed a bit since then. 😉 You are a class of talented individuals with so much drive and passion. Oh, and smarts. Use all of that potential for good as you become self-actualized humans. Read widely and be kind. 


Yours is a group of focused, hardworking individuals composed of future scientists, doctors, entrepreneurs, politicians, engineers, programmers, and academics. I am truly excited to see your future contributions to the betterment of our society. As you continue on your path, follow your interests, grow your strengths, remember that crucibles often beget success, and seek to lift others up. I wish you all the best on this journey we call life.


Class of 2023 – this is such a fun, quirky, lively class and BIM will shine a little less once you all leave. I’m looking forward to hearing/seeing/reading all the amazing things you all will accomplish in the future. Wherever your future takes you, remember to think like a cation and stay positive! 


I will always think of the 2023 class as the first ninth graders I taught at BIM. There was so much personality in those Honors Lang classes! Thank you so much for introducing me to BIM by challenging me and making me a better teacher over the past four years! It’s been such a pleasure getting to know you and watching you grow! I will miss seeing you in the hallways! Don’t forget to come back and visit!


There was a math teacher named Loomis, 

Whose calculus lessons were the truest, 

He’d integrate with flair, 

And explain with great care,

To ensure that his students had a clue-est!


I first taught some of you in 6th grade. 6th grade! I watched you grow from sixth graders who I did not particularly enjoy teaching (this comes with provisos: a) it’s not you; I just don’t like teaching middle schoolers; and b) I did enjoy Robert giving debate speeches) into people I enjoy talking to. Others, I didn’t meet until high school. All of you have impressed me with your hard work and enthusiasm. You are talented, interesting people, and I’m excited to see what you do next. Stay in touch!


Ok, You have heard me tell you so many things over the years. I will keep this short. Trust yourself but take good advice when it is offered. Just because you can do something does not mean you should do it. Take the easy road sometimes and if you don’t bend you will break. Visit and share all the amazing and not so amazing things that happen in your life. Thank you for making BIM look good. 


Good luck, have fun (:
