Mr. Konrad really cares about the students. He connects with parents and students personally, takes time to email them individually about opportunities, and is always supportive and positive about the students, even if they are struggling and having trouble in class. He is a positive force in their lives. When we see him outside of school, he remembers us and talks with us on a person-to-person basis. He is personable and likable, the kind of teacher students want to work hard for because they feel appreciated and loved.
