What is your favorite class? My favorite class is Spanish 4, because my teacher, Señora Hubka, challenges us but also makes the environment fun. I also really love learning a new language.

What is your toughest class? My toughest class is Anatomy, because the information is sometimes very difficult to understand, and it involves a lot of memorizing.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? Time management. I get my schoolwork done whenever I have a free period, and I leave some time after school.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? Procrastination. Many

students save their work until the very last minute to complete it, and not everyone gets it done on time.

Who has inspired you educationally? My parents and Señora Hubka, because they all push me to do my very best, and have always supported me in everything I do.
