Teachers in the US are suffering from a condition known as teacher burnout. The workload and problems only add to the stress teachers already have, and the primary issue of this, according to Babich, is the way American Education is viewed. “This is a huge shift in American education,” Babich said. “You often hear students say ‘ugh, I have to go to school tomorrow,’ not ‘I get to go to school tomorrow.’ So, in other countries, education is a privilege, students want to go to school. And I get it, high school can be brutal, and school is not fun for everybody. If we want to come together to solve this problem, I think it’s how we view education, not as a burden, not as intrusive, not as indoctrination. From a societal perspective, if we started viewing education as a privilege, as something to want to do, we may be more inclined to see the problems that exist and then try to fix them.”

The winner of the Library March Madness is Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Due to its popularity, the book was able to stay strong throughout the multiple rounds of the competition, according to Assistant Librarian Jennifer Baskin, who applauded the book for its years of success and relevance. “I pretty much knew that was going to be the winner from the get,” Baskin said. “I was kind of hoping that I would be surprised that [‘Hunger Games’] wasn’t the winner, but I understand why. It’s pretty popular, and a lot of people read that book, and it was their introduction to reading. That’s something that got them excited about reading, so it makes sense that they would still be excited about it. I think that book has held up, just sort of like ‘Harry Potter’, or ‘The Lightening Thief’. It holds up even when I read it as an adult, but I was still surprised that it was still going so strong.”

As the college admission season comes to a close end, students rush to make their final college choices. Students, such as senior Madelyn Roberts, wanted a college that matched their lifestyles and passions, which was the deciding factor in choosing a college. “I really wanted somewhere that was picturesque, [some place] that fits with my vintage style,” Roberts said. “I wanted somewhere where I could walk down to mainstreet and have a bunch at a cafe. Or go shopping. I’ll be a fashion major, and I have my own fashion Instagram [account] and I could just see myself pursuing these interests in Fort Collins.”

Driving is something that all students have come to rely on, especially during their senior year. The question of how interested modern teenagers are in driving is now being brought up in multiple studies, however, high school students still recognize and value the importance of driving as a whole, such as senior Jasmin Gonzales. “I think driving is a super important skill because it allows the person to run personal errands or help out others if they need a ride somewhere,” Gonzales said. “I think that is one of the best parts of high school is being able to start driving yourself to school. There’s something so maturing about it.”

Netflix and Chill suddenly got disappointing with how the new heist movie played out. Red Notice had a lot of potential, which kind of went to waste. While the whole movie was not up to my expectations for it, there were some exciting parts to it, such as the cinematography and the action scenes.

In honor of Halloween, members of the 4-H Toastmasters club hold a virtual costume contest. The club was created over two years ago with the purpose of helping students improve their public speaking skills. “Our club is best known for its warm, friendly and accepting environment,” junior Ruchi Sankolli said. “We emphasize kindness towards our members and advocate for constructive criticism and improvement for our members. We strive for this kind of environment because a lot of people who join us are nervous and sometimes afraid to speak out, so maintaining this environment is important.”

Social media has become an essential tool for students to express their opinions and spread awareness about certain issues. As of today, it is the main source of current information for a majority of the students. While this is a benefit to the student population, it is also important to be kind on social media and respect the opinions of others, especially at this time.
