After 25 years in education, with 21 of those years being devoted to MHS, pre-calculus teacher Mrs. Debra Price is retiring this June.  

Becoming a teacher was a natural choice for Mrs. Price because it combined two of her passions into one career.  

“I always loved math and I enjoyed being around young people,” Mrs. Price said.

Over the past 25 years, Mrs. Price has gained a love for MHS, saying that her favorite part of the job is “being in the classroom” with kids every day.  

But Mrs. Price’s retirement is bittersweet.  She will miss being with students on a daily basis and will miss the friends she has made here.

“I’m leaving with mixed emotions. I am anxious to start a new part of my life, but this has been such a big part of it that it’s a little scary,” she said.

Mrs. Price advises students to “always give it a chance” in life and in education and recommends that students “keep an open mind” in all that they do.  

She also wants to remind students to “always do the best [they] can!”

With her free time, Mrs. Price plans to travel and take classes at nearby colleges.  She also plans to pursue another hobby not many people may know she’s interested in: art and design.

“I love to make jewelry,” she said.  

Additionally, Mrs. Price plans to make some more time for family.

“I have two grandchildren with one on the way.  They keep me busy and make me very happy.”

Though we don’t look forward to her leaving, we wish her good luck in the future.
