What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?

Who has influenced you most while at Geneva? How?
Mrs. Greenlees has been super influential throughout my years here. I don’t quite know how she does it but she managed to keep equations and formulas fun, engaging and easy to learn. It was so encouraging to see her do what she loves and instill and instill that love into others. Walking into math class was never daunting and that was because of Mrs. Greenlees (haha! and also her stories).
