» The Night of January Sixteenth Immanuel Students Bring Ayn Rand’s Legal Drama to Life

Another fantastic article by Camryn Orosco, an Immanuel Schools student. Please continue reading for the excerpt.

Excerpt:

Immanuel High School drama students are bringing the courtroom to the stage this spring, under the direction of Mr. Rick Robbins. They will be performing The Night of January Sixteenth, a legal drama written by Ayn Rand that takes place in 1930s New York City. It follows the three-day trial for the murder of Bjorn Faulkner, a wealthy businessman who may or may not have been honest and upstanding when he was alive.

In the defendant’s seat is Karen Andre, Faulkner’s former secretary and mistress. Does she have the motive and the means to commit murder? That is for a jury chosen from the audience to decide every night. To be considered for the jury, playgoers will be asked to write their name on a jury summons when they arrive in the Immanuel chapel lobby...

» Teacher Profile: Karin Deaver

Check out this fantastic article by Immanuel student, Camryn Orosco:

How She Does It: Karin Deaver, Immanuel Teacher and Mother

Excerpt:

Parent-teacher conferences are a symbol of dread for many teenagers, but for some, these meetings last beyond the classroom and all the way to the dinner table: when your teacher is also your parent.

The truth is that having your parent as your teacher can be ordinary and even beneficial. Many traits necessary for successful parenting, such as patience, compassion, and communication also aid in effective teaching. Because of Immanuel’s small, close-knit community, a considerable number of students who attend have their parents as teachers. Making this combination work is about balance, time management, and a lot of patience. ...

» Teacher Profile: Josh Justin

Check out another fantastic article by Immanuel student, Breanna Woods as she gives us insight into the character of our fellow teacher, Josh Justin.

Excerpt:

I have had the pleasure of having Mr. Josh Justin as a teacher for both Biology and Chemistry. I took Chemistry a year ago with a different teacher, and was not able to comprehend the material which led to me having to repeat the class. Mr. Justin was always willing to put in extra work with me on things I didn’t understand, and he helped me excel in every area of Chemistry. He puts students’ learning first and is a well-loved and respected teacher by students, parents, and co-workers. Aubree Venture, a junior at Immanuel who has taken Life Science, Biology, and Chemistry from Mr. Justin said, “Mr. Justin makes the hard things easy. He doesn’t over-complicate things, and really makes sure you understand the material. His classroom has a fun environment but is constructive as well.” ...
