What would be one piece of advice to a student entering TMS for the first time?
Listen to the teachers and show them that you appreciate what they do. Offer them a helping hand when possible and you will earn their respect in return. By showing interest and respect to them, they will return the favor and your years in high school will be enjoyable.
What student activities were you involved in?
I was very active in helping Bill Lescohier with technology problem solving and research in the new, cool things that were coming about. I was also active in student council my senior year.
Is there one experience at TMS that had an impact on your future life after TMS?
Talking with the teachers outside of class work gave me the ability to learn more than what was taught in the classroom. I became aware that by listening to others, you can learn a lot and become a more well rounded person.
Did you make friends at TMS who you are still friends with today?
Some of my best friends today were ones I met at The Marin School. Not one of us went to the same college, but the friendship TMS created was great enough that when we are back in the same area, we make a point to hang out together.
What have you been doing in the interim?
I went to Linfield College and graduated in May 2007. Now I am working as a software engineer for Digital Foundry in Tiburon, CA.
