What is your favorite class? BP. My favorite class this year is Anatomy and Physiology. I love science and this science class has more of a focus on the medical field, which is where I am most interested in working.

What is your toughest class? BP. My toughest class this year is AP Calculus. There is a lot of challenging problems to solve and the lessons go into depth, which can be misleading and confusing sometimes!

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? BP. I balance my class work and my extracurricular activities through making good use of my time and planning ahead. When I know that I have numerous assignments due, I take advantage of every opportunity to get them done or simply get started. My assignments and schoolwork are my top priority, so I make sure to set aside time for schoolwork, while still participating in and sometimes planning around extracurricular activities.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? BP. The biggest challenge that high school students face today is finding a way to get their schoolwork done as well as participate in extracurricular activities. Sometimes, it can be hard to try and find time for both, and it can even seem stressful at times. There are so many wonderful extracurricular opportunities and finding the right balance between school and those activities can be hard.

Who has inspired you educationally? BP. Eleanor Botka has inspired me educationally. I had her as a teacher in middle school, and I have learned so much from her. I strive to learn more and become better as a writer, reader, speaker, and improve skills in all areas of education because of what she has taught me and what I learned from her both inside and outside of the classroom.
