I love Mrs. Sieck’s class the most, because Calculus is one of my favorite subjects. I could feel Mrs. Sieck’s passion and enthusiasm in teaching students. I whole-heartedly appreciated her helps when I first attended at Pius. Moreover, in this class, I had a chance to study and talk with many good and smart friends who are always willing to help me.

Although I am not Catholic, I am still grateful that I have opportunities to acknowledge a new religion with many well-educated lessons and meaningful cultures.
