Most days, one can find the McSparins and Grahams together in the Advanced Placement Biology room after school, discussing weekend plans, course objectives, shared students and stories about the Graham twins. Both couples’ relationships have flourished at RBHS, the Grahams’ for a decade and the McSparins’ for just a few months. For Valentine’s Day, the four teachers shared the stories of their proposals and progression of their relationships.
