Teachers at KO always challenge you to think more critically, especially in English class. My English teacher is always there to push me to think deeper into the text. She makes me think, ‘Okay, I understand the basics of this novel, but how do I take it to the next level? How do I connect this to the broader world and themes we see in our day-today lives?’ It makes me understand that novels don’t exist apart from our world but are reflections of it. You gain another level of appreciation for the work.
