Carter White graduated from Sea Crest School in 2008. He started out in Kindergarten, back in 1999, at our old building and moved to the new building when he was in third grade. He still remembers the excitement about the move and the brand new classroom he got to enjoy.
Today, after nine productive years, he is back in the same classroom! A lot has changed, the furniture was recently updated and the classroom fully transformed in a flexible learning space. He is still enjoying that classroom, but now from a different perspective: assisting one of his favorite teachers, Ms. Bybee.
After Sea Crest, Carter attended Half Moon Bay High School and studied Physiological Sciences at UCLA. He graduated last year, worked as an EMT in LA, and is waiting to go to graduate school in August at Tufts University School of Medicine. In the meantime, he wanted to do something productive and decided to volunteer on a regular basis at our school.
“I’ve always loved working with kids and want to go into pediatrics”, said Carter. “I’m really excited about coming back and helping Ms. Bybee. I know the kids also get a lot out of it. They get even more attention, more one-on-one time […] I love Sea Crest. I loved my time here. A lot of the teachers are still here. It’s a great school and a lot bigger now.”
Carter will be assisting the third grade classrooms until the end of this school year when he goes to medical school in Boston. We are very proud of the successful young man he has become. We would also like to thank him for thinking of us to volunteer. He is having a good time and the children, too. They are lucky to have such a wonderful role model in the classroom. Thank you, Carter! Good luck in your new endeavors!
