Hello, Benny here and since this school year has just ended I’ll talk about how I’ve grown this year with the help of others along the way. This year was really amazing and educational from the college trips to our group projects. Going into this year I thought it was going to be easy and I’ll just slide right through and move on to next year but that wasn’t the case.
There were many things I would not have done such a great job on if not for the help of my group and our tutors. The psat, for example, yes it is just a practice test but I really wanted to see where I stood academically so I studied and gave it my all. Tutor Lupe Corona helped me on good habits to practice while taking the psat. Such as; don’t spend too much time on one question, just move on, try to finish the sections rather think hard about each question. The exact grade I’m keeping to myself but it was higher than I thought it was going to be and truly gave me confidence that I can slide through this year but not without making friends, as I later learned.
My Dr. Acad. Group consisted of Claire, Mia, Naomi, Galilea, and Jose. In this group we talked, laughed, enjoyed ourselves, but also helped each other with any problems or difficulties we faced. I think I can speak for us all when I say,”We truly have something great”. Mr. Norman always peeped us busy with assignments some brief but many difficult and lead us to ask for help from each other, Norman,and tutors. It is because of this group,, my tutors, my teachers, and family that I have become the smarter and better enhanced student I now stand today.
However, who made me prepared for college and requirements needed was Mr. Heras. Mr. Heras showed us all very valuable information about college that I would have been blindsided by when applying came to day. He showed us what a resume should look like, what to look for in a college, and ,one I already knew, we needed scholarships and a whole lot to avoid paying a fortune to further my education, but also how to get these scholarships.
Also, Mr. Stroup came into our class and talked about how we can not procrastinate. He said it causes stress and depression, and this scared me because there are times when I procrastinate and feel the stress at the worst of levels. Depression had yet to hit me so I stopped while I was ahead, which lead to finding out getting my work done sooner rather than later was much more convenient. I did not have to worry about doing it the night before like some of my classmates had to. I also had much more time to do other things from chores to taking hour long naps when I got home. As the day ends with me asleep so does this article, thank you really for just being there and I hope to see you all in the years to come.
