Wells spoke of how hard it was for him to choose who got to be a part of speech, “The biggest dilemma of large group speech team is that so many kids want to be a part of it, which don’t get me wrong is a wonderful thing, but sadly we can’t send 100 kids to Contest.”
Because of the team had so many students signed up, Wells fought the administration for a third coach. Having over seventy kids involved, he and Anderson knew they couldn’t coach all the kids as well as they’d like to. This year, they finally granted his wish, and Ms. Thieben agreed to be the new coach. She is now going between the two classrooms helping where she is needed at practices. She’s also been helping those participating in Mime while Wells is busy coaching those in Improv.
There are speech practices every day either in Wells’s room or in Anderson’s from 3:30 p.m. to 5. Anyone is welcome to come in and watch.
