It’s really important that people don’t limit themselves

Teacher feature: Mr. Highsmith-Reyes

This year Bryce Highsmith-Reyes was interviewed in August 2023 and is the French teacher here at La Joya. Mr. Highsmith-Reyes has been teaching at La Joya for 5 years and has really enjoyed teaching French here and meeting his new students.  He is a firm believer that he has the ability to empower students to believe in themselves.

Mr. Highsmith-Reyes gets his inspiration from his interest and the fascination of talking to people.

“I just didn’t want to be the person who took Spanish,” stated Mr. Highsmith-Reyes.

Mr. Highsmith-Reyes wanted to be different and actually find a passion for something new and especially because he loved interacting with people and knew that there was going to many opportunities to take and learn those other languages.

“It is really important that people do not limit themselves,” said Mr. Highsmith-Reyes.

States that there are so many opportunities that people can take but they limit themselves so easily. In his class, he wants to be able to teach students that taking only the easy classes isn’t always the way to go. He wants kids to have an opportunity to try something new and be passionate for what they learn in his class.

“I love teaching to kids who can find passion and curiosity and just learn another language.”
