Mrs. Galoci,

She is the best and most important person that our school has. Mrs. Galoci has high standers for herself and her students as well. She will get to work early in the morning to help out students or stay after school to make sure that what she is teaching here students they understand. Here over all quality is just to many words to describe she loves to bring in new thing to share with the class, no matter if it's what we are currently studying in class. Mrs. Galoci also grading and test taking polices are the best she wants every student to do well and be understand the lesson before jumping into something new. It's beond words how affective she is with communication between students, if you need her shes got your back anytime and anywhere. Teaching style is great she doesn't give out homework she things that homework should be done inside the classroom, if there is any homework if any she gives you time in class to get it started or finish it so you don't have to spend time doing it at home.

I have gone to Grand Traverse Acadamy since I was in first grade. They has been many changes over the corce of 12 years, some postive and some negative. I have always enjoyed the idea of wearing a uniform and looking nice. The other thing that I have really enjoyed is having half days on Fridays. Something that I do not like about Grand Traverse Academy mangement staff since 2014. There has been new rules that are kinda pointless, an example is that we can't wear skinny jeans or pants, what does it matter as long as everything is coverd?
I have been at this school since 1 grade and now I am currently a senior there has been many good and bad changes in the school. I have had some wonderfull relationships with my teachers then others again I haven't. One of my favorite experiences is that I have got to be involved with the schools choices since I have been in the 6th grade. Something that makes Grand Traverse Academy everyone K-12 grade wear uniforms and we are all in the same buliding together, which makes for a good thing and bad thing. One thing that I would change about this school is the fact that we are all togther in one big buliding, and the fact that some of are teachers haven't been the greatest.
