With only three months of school left, Robinson has welcomed Nicole Sasser as the newest teacher in Camelot. She now teaches ninth grade Semantics and Logics, along with Mythology. However, before becoming a high school teacher, Sasser was a middle school teacher at Franklin, an all-boys school.

“There was never a dull moment,” Sasser said when asked about only teaching boys. Sasser taught eighth grade English, which is very different than her job here today, teaching both high school boys and girls.

“The boys here are much tamer because the girls help to balance out the situation,” Sasser said. “The maturity is higher than eighth graders.”

Her favorite part of teaching is during the discussion, when all of the students can share their thoughts on certain subjects.

“I like the different perspectives that kids have,” she said, “I think they can be sometimes more intelligent than what adults have to say.”

After all, the whole reason Sasser became a teacher was to “give back to society and make a difference for kids.”

One of her students, Jade Davis (’21), who is in Sasser’s fourth period Semantics and Logics class, feels she has already done that.

“Ms. Sasser is very different than the teachers I have had. I really enjoy having her,” Davis said. “The way she teaches is fun, yet we still learn.”

Another student, N’Dea Fitzgerald (’21) is enjoying her new teacher so far.

“She’s fun and understanding,” Fitzgerald said.

Despite only recently being hired, Sasser is already Fitzgerald’s favorite teacher.

“She’s one of the kindest teachers I’ve ever met,” she said, “I’m glad I have her as a teacher this year.”

Although she came very late into the school year, her students believe Sasser is fitting in just fine. While it’s unusual for a teacher to be hired this late, the position came open and Sasser conveniently lives right down the street from Robinson.

“It was an easy transition,” she said. “I do feel like I’m missing out on a little bit of the community or the culture of the school, but there’s always next year.”
