Faculty Tribute

Dear Ella, As educators, we are consistently in a position to motivate and teach younger generations, but what isn’t readily discussed is that our students leave a mark on us that we too embrace and keep close to our hearts. The last day of class that I shared with you, Lauren, and Mia is a day I will never forget. The three of you filled every corner of the class boards with so much love. This is my opportunity to thank you for being a part of my life. I am so proud of you Ella. You are an unforgettable student full of heart. Congratulations on this huge milestone! Love, 
— Nalei Guzmán, Spanish teacher (Profe.)

Little Sister Shout-Outs
 
HEYY ELLA! CONGRATS ON YOUR DECISION ON TO GO TO USC!! I remember the first time I met you, I was super nervous because I was just a lowly freshman and you were an intimidating junior, haha. But then once I got to know you, I realized that you were the sweetest junior and you made me feel so welcomed into Mayfield. With such a happy disposition, great attitude, and best upperclassmen advice. I truly admire your positive attitude and awesome dance skills, and poise during the toughest of times. I am so proud of you and can't wait to see all the amazing things you will accomplish. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and I can't wait to see all the amazing things you're going to accomplish. I'm going to miss you so much <33

Dear Ella, Congratulations on graduating and starting a new part of your life! I really enjoyed meeting you and spending time with you. From what I was able to learn from the little time I was able to spend with you, I know you are a very smart, kind, funny, and gorgeous person and I look at you as a role model and someone I aspire to be like. You are going to do great things! Love,
— Kyra M. '22
