Grace Elizabeth Reilly

Colonie Central High School

Parents: Kristin and Michael Reilly

College or other plans: The College of Saint Rose to study Early Childhood and Childhood education
Plans after college: Working towards a master’s degree while pursuing my dream job of becoming an educator simultaneously.

What is the memory of high school you will never forget: Being in the Each One Teach One program, as both a teacher and an intern. This experience was enlightening and unique as it solidified my passion for teaching, allowed me to create memorable connections with students and teachers and provided a sense of nostalgia, since I taught (virtually) at the elementary school where my own education began.

Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and why: Ms. Deborah LaBrake (English), because she inspired me to embrace challenges and radiate diligence and independence, both personally and academically. I’m so fortunate to have been blessed with Mrs. LaBrake’s guidance and support.
