Tessa Koen is a junior at Graham High School. She is 16 and describes herself as being compassionate, kind, and emotional. So far in her high school experience, her favorite part of it has been Contest Play, "It was a really good experience because I got to test myself plus theater is really fun,"  Koen said. 

 If Tessa could make a hybrid between three teachers, she would choose Mrs. Metcalfe, Mrs. Tinsley, and Mr. Blevins. "They're all really good at explaining things and have a unique teaching style," Tessa said. Her hobbies include playing Animal Crossing and rewatching the same YouTube videos over and over again. 

Tessa's hopes for her future high school experience are that it'll continue to be fun and productive, and she hopes to pass all of her classes. Koen's favorite class is Mr. Blevins' Econ and Personal Finance because "its important information and a helpful class."
