Saying Goodbye: journalism advisor Susan Massy

Forty-Two Years at Northwest


Veronica Meiss

What made Northwest stand out?

“The drive for excellence that I saw in every classroom as I walked through the halls. I have spent my career in disbelief that I am so lucky to work with so many incredibly talented and driven students and teachers.”

What do you want to tell the individual filling your position?

“1. This is the best place in the world to be – excellent teachers, great kids, caring administration and wonderful colleagues. Unfortunately, he won’t have a lot of time to get to know very many of them. 2. Don’t forget to go home.”

What legacy do you hope to leave behind in Room 151?

“I guess the same legacy that my high school teacher left with me; ‘There’s always room for the best. Go be the best.’”
