Mrs. Bauer

Mrs. Bauer is an incredible teacher and what comes with that is an amazing person. She gives students insight into what the world will really be like, teaches us that there is a life after High School, and that if we pursue goals we can be anything we want to be.

 

There are 4 people in her family. Her husband Kyle is an electrician. She has two sons, Kace and Jack. Kace is six years old and is a jujitsu champion.

“Jack is four years old and is full of amazingness.” Mrs. Bauer tells reporters as she is talking about her son.

 

In her free time she enjoys kayaking, camping, writing books (which she thinks no one would read… I believe otherwise,) listening to podcasts and watching movies. One of her other passions is multimedia design.

She tells reporters, “I could get lost in the computer and not eat or talk to anyone in the day and be completely content with life.”

 

Mrs. Bauer graduated from Weber State University with a bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in multimedia design. She has a master’s degree in administration as well.

 

When pursuing her career, she decided to teach high school students because she likes teaching young adults. She enjoys being able to have real conversations with them. If she was given the opportunity to be a professor, she would take it.

“If I could have a class of students interested in one specific topic, I think that would be amazing.”

Reporters ask Mrs. Bauer what she enjoys most about teaching

“Students. You kids are so incredible and interesting. I truly enjoy getting to know my kids and learning what they are interested in, what they are capable of, and how they are going to impact the world. Every day that is what keeps me excited to be here, talking with you and hearing your perspectives and ideas. You all have so much going on but in the 90 minutes I get to have you in class, I am able to see greatness. And yeah, some days are better than others, but each bad day is just another opportunity to see you in a different light, and even that gives me an opportunity to learn.”

In the next ten years, Mrs. Bauer hopes to write a novel. To show her children how amazing the world is. She also hopes to take time to enjoy all the life she gets to live.

I know I am not the only student Mrs. Bauer has influenced. She creates a safe environment for all of us students, which she does amazingly with how different all of us are. If you have the opportunity to take one of her classes don’t take it for granted, she could change your life in the way she changed mine.

The audience is on their feet, as the players dribble the ball down the court. As the clock ticks down, the ball is thrown and arcs perfectly into the hoop. The crowd goes wild as the buzzer goes off and rushes onto the court. The excitement that courses through the air at a basketball game is contagious.

Davis High School projects massive sales at mattress fundraiser

Attention Davis County! The Davis High School marketing program is having a fundraiser! On November 16th, there will be a mattress sale being held at Davis High School.

Not only will the marketing team be selling mattresses, but they will also be selling pillows, bedsheets, and linens for all bed sizes! The bedsheets come at a great price and quality. Plush microfiber allows for breathability while still giving a good tactile feel.

The bedsheets come in white; ivory; blush; lilac; fern; driftwood; ash; and pacific colors. Pricing will range from $45 to $55. An added benefit to purchasing from this fundraiser will be a 100% money back guarantee if returned within 30 days.

It may be easy to think that the mattresses being sold will not be high quality due to the fact that it is a fundraiser. This is not quite the case though.

The mattresses that are sold are brand new and are not “second hand” mattresses. This fundraiser will sell brands including Intellibed, Simmons Beautyrest, Southerland, and many more name brand mattresses.

“The reason that we’re having the fundraiser in the first place is so that we can gather enough money to help support the DECA Nationals trip. This year, the national competition will be held in Nashville, Tennessee.”

Stated Mr. McCauley when asked about what the funds would go toward.

In terms of payment, credit cards; debit cards; checks; or cash are all acceptable methods. One special opportunity is a no fee or interest lay a way program. The marketing program is hoping to have one of the biggest turnouts of this year so please come support Davis High School! Tell the cashier that Wyatt Ko sent you to the sale for an extra $50 off of any mattress!

Mindfulness and Meditation to Save our Fevered Minds

Students at Davis High school have insanely busy schedules filled with as many activities that someone can fit into a 24 hour period. We often overwhelm ourselves with extra curricular activities and endless piles of homework. This kind of routine can become very unhealthy and greatly effect our physical, mental, and emotional health. It’s easy to forget about yourself and your needs when all you’re focusing on is being a successful student. This is where mindfulness and meditation becomes a key component in saving you from slowly destroying yourself.

Mrs. Tarbet offers a yoga class that has had an insane positive impact on my life. Yoga itself has been practiced for thousands of years and is still very popular today because of it’s positive health benefits. The curriculum is centered around exercise through intense stretching, relaxation through breathing, and improving mental health through meditation. I can’t express how amazing it feels to take a break during a stressful school day and just focus on controlling how I want my mind and body to feel.

I think teenagers especially take for granted how incredible our bodies are. Being fatally sleep deprived, depressed, and overwhelmed with anxiety is just second nature us. Yoga class teaches you to live completely in the moment. Just taking a minute to pay attention to all your senses is an experience you have to try out to fully understand. Even just acknowledging the fact that you’re alive and listening to the sound of your breathing is enough to change your perspective on life.

It would be a wise idea for teachers and administration to pay more attention to their students and their mental health. Too many times we feel like robots in a factory being programmed with information for 7 hours. Being able to take a little break to meditate and clear our minds of the endless information that’s constantly being crammed into our skulls will be extremely effective. Educators should care more about how students are feeling and thinking before they publicly shame them for not understanding 100 different concepts at the same time.

Yoga is a very underrated class and its ideas and concepts should be taught to every student in every classroom. Learning how to relax your body and control your thought processes is a skill that will bless you for the rest of your life. Stress is deadly, it is crucial that you learn how to control it and relax your mind in order to have a meaningful, happy, and healthy life. So scurry down to the counseling office and clear spot for Yoga next semester. You can thank me later.

National STEM Day

Last week was Friday, November 8, which also happens to be national STEM day. STEM or STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math. This is a day that has been around since 2015 and is designed to celebrate and inspire everyday activities, jobs, or learning experiences that involve STEM.

National STEM day was actually inspired by a Netflix series. The show is called Project MC2, and is meant to inspire young girls to explore STEM-related careers. In the show 4 girls work in a secret organization called NOV8 (pronounced innovate and explains why STEM day is on November 8), to protect the world.

Even though Project MC2 is only a 6/10 on IMDB, the point to inspire young minds to branch out into STEM is still there. The day is observed for this reason, and a great way to celebrate is by inspiring young people to branch out into.

“National STEM day is meant to inspire kids to explore and pursue their interests in science, technology, engineering, art, and math.” writes Checkiday.com

There are many jobs that revolve around STEM that go all the way from a nurse practitioner to a mathematician. Whenever we ask kids “what they want to be when they grow up” they usually respond with a career choice that includes science, technology, engineering, or math. Helping your little sister to get inspired to work toward becoming an astronaut, or inspiring your younger cousin to take up a career in medicine is a great way to get involved in STEM

“Don’t let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.” stated astronaut Mae Jemison

That is what National STEM day is all about.
