“He knows a lot about historical events,” junior Caroline Carlisle said.

Coach Larry Siegel has had some interesting events happen in his classroom, such as a student passing out from intoxication. The student had all A’s but one day came in and just fell asleep, or so everyone thought.

Siegel only has one junior US history class; the rest are sophomore World history classes. He said the two grades, even though they are so close in age, are very different in the classroom setting.
