What is your favorite class? MC. My favorite class is Spanish. I’ve enjoyed the challenge of learning a foreign language for four years. Also, Mrs. Hubka is an amazing teacher that brought so much fun into the classroom. I hope someday to travel to Spain.

What is your toughest class? MC. My toughest class is without a doubt math. I have to really focus because the concepts take time for me to fully understand.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? MC. Having a busy schedule forces me to manage my time and prompts me to get my work done before or after practice or a game. I try to stay very organized.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? MC. Finding the balance between academics, athletics, social time and family time.

Who has inspired you educationally?  MC. My parents have always supported me in my studies and in all aspects of my life.  They have encouraged me to challenge myself and have taught me that knowledge is the key to success, and with effort and commitment, anything is possible.
