Mrs. Bennett is a vocal music teacher at MHS. She says that her year has been fantastic so far and she loves her new classroom. She is enjoying the new renovations to the fine arts department and is excited about the new auditorium. She is looking forward to putting on Oklahoma!, the fall musical, and the choir concerts in the new auditorium. This year 15 students were accepted into district choir and four will audition for all state choir on Saturday. Chamber choir will be recording Christmas songs which will air on KOMU-TV in December. She says Oklahoma! is going really well with 30 students on stage and almost the same amount of students on the crew.
Mr. McGuire has been at MHS for several years as a social studies teacher. He has taught World History, Government, American Studies, and has now begun teaching AP US History (APUSH). He says he is looking forward seeing more student achievement throughout the year and is excited about the new faces around the school, especially in the social studies department. He loves interacting with students as they learn about events in the past and connect them to today. His goals for the year include helping his government students get advanced or proficient on the EOC and to set the record for highest scores in APUSH. He says that the transition into teaching APUSH was difficult at first but he has quickly become used to it.
