Faculty are our parents away from home

Teachers and administrators are like our parents. They try to do what’s best for us even though it might not always be what we want.
Take these past few weeks, for example. Administrators pushed to implement SMART Block as soon as possible, but unfortunately had to suspend it after just a few days. They did not “take it away” because they didn’t want to deal with a few trouble-making students; they temporarily stopped it in order to work out a few more kinks so that it can be more successful in the future.
All the attention Rose has gotten from the media hasn’t helped much either. School officials have a job to make Rose the best it can be and keep all of its students as safe as possible. That includes keeping the image of Rose as pristine as always.
If we have to stop SMART Block every now and then to solve a few problems, so be it. A few days off only gives us more of a chance to keep it for the majority of the year.
Before you start complaining about not having SMART Block again, think twice. Think about all of the responsibility resting on the shoulders of our staff. They have done everything in their power to make Rose the best school in the county and we have to give them some credit. Without our wonderful administration and staff, we would not BE the best high school in Pitt County.
SMART Block is a privilege for all of us. If you look around at other high schools in Pitt County, they don’t have SMART Block. We are fortunate enough to have administrators who are willing to give us a chance and see how it goes.
In the end, we’ll get the glorious SMART Block back, so there’s no use complaining about it now. Just be thankful we have some of the best administrators and teachers around, and that they would do anything to make sure we become the well-rounded students we are all meant to be.
So chill out, SMART Block is cool and so are our administrators. Stop hating on our teachers because they rock and our faculty and staff are the real MVP’s. Also, shoutout to Ms. Jacobson for everything she does for us Rampants.
