I was a student during the year 1973 thru 1975 and during that time I was the first student chosen to be part in a pilot program that it was for Billingual students and also thanks to one of my favorite teacher Mr. Sepulveda he was my 9th grade English teacher that thanks to him I started writing novels and plays. and also thanks to Mr. Texidor my Social Studies teacher, and Mr. Robles my 8th grade Spanish teacher my principas Ms. Irrizary and all the teachers during those years and the guidance counselor that thanks to her and to my principal they took good care of us the students during that time if you could so kindly to send me photos from those years and also the Janitor ladies and the lunch ladies that they did took good care of us thank you for those years that I have spend in that school it was memorable in those years we had that bond between student and teachers and guidance counselor and the rest of the staff with respect I did finished my High School and also went to College and did my Bachelor in Health Administration thanks to those teachers from my middle school Manuel Cuevas Bacener in the time that I was there the Uniform for the girls was color wine and the shirt pink and the guys was brown pants and white shirts. to all my friends during those years thank you for being there and to the rest of the teachers that right now there names i can not remember but i remember everything else there was a 9th grade teacher that he used to teach History and he used to write the whole entire wall and then in the begining of the year he used to say to us get a composition notebook for the words of the day and then by the almost end of the school year he used to tell us to write down in another notebook in alphabetical order and neat hand writing and clean notebook for a 2 grades and he was giving us a week to finished. and thanks to him I learned a lot of our history and culture. I will recommend this school if they have almost the teachers that they could teach and take time with the student one on one and don't let no student behind and you will see that PR will have a better future because we have to started from our young ones and teach them how to respect God bless everyone that taught me and all my friends that are alive and deceased R.I.P. like we use to say keep you head up and dont' look back and no matter the circumstances always be proud of yourself 100 percent and always have faith in youselve
