Ethan’s experience at BPS spearheaded his career into journalism, owing his early success to Mrs. Bieber including a recent National Media Award.

Favorite teacher?
Mrs. Bieber was my favorite teacher because she helped my journalism career get going. When I felt like dropping the class, she reassured me it was going to pay off. A lot of what I do now is because of her belief in me and my skills.
