Arcadia High School
Mrs. Paloma has been such an inspiration to all who have had her. She's not the usual "she doesn't give homework" kind of nice teacher, at all. She is the kind of teacher that I want to get a good grade in her class because of HER. She teaches Economics and Government at Arcadia High School. I, personally, am by no means a straight A student. Not even close. But the way Mrs. Paloma teaches makes every student in our class shut up and listen. I have some of the rowdiest kids in my school in that class and they all respect her enough to stop talking and listen (they don't do that for just anyone). I know that no teacher wants their students to fail but she is the first teacher I have had that genuinely cares about ALL of our futures and wants EVERYONE to succeed. Her husband is an American soldier. She is always proud to share what he has done for our country, and this just adds to the respect value she carries. She clearly deserves to be "teacher of the week" all of the time!
