My best teacher was Elaine Hoter from Healthcare college. Her lessons were extremely interesting, efficient and absolutely fascinating. She always practiced what she preached: her methods of teaching us demonstrated the desirable teaching methods for our use. Her lovely personality also contributed to the success of her teaching and lessons. She made every student feel like one of her own. Having her as a teacher was a blessing! I wish her all the best

Grand Canyon School is the only kindergarten through twelfth grade school in a national park. It is extremely small the high school only has about 80 students. So there is not a lot of athletic or clubs opportunities however the community created is strong. There is a lot of diversity about one third of the students are Native American, one third Hispanics and one third Caucasian. Located in the national park gives students opportunities and appreciation for conservation and growth.
My overall experience of GCU has overall be great! I have had a hard time theses last few semesters but my teachers have been more than understanding and willing to help out, and my advisor is awesome too! I will be going back if I can from my graduate.
