What is your favorite class? Spanish 4 because I have had the pleasure of learning the language all four years from Señora Hubka. Last April break, a group of Spanish students were able to travel to Spain and learn about the culture. Señora makes the class interesting and exciting.

What is your toughest class? My toughest class is AP English. I am being challenged as a writer and a thinker when it comes to interpreting literature. We just finished a unit on the epic poem Beowulf and the novel Grendel, and currently are working on poetry.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? I try not to procrastinate and do my work in a timely manner. Putting it off only stresses me out, and I do not produce work to the best of my ability.

What is the biggest challenge high school students’ face today? A lot of seniors stop caring about school early on in the year. It is important to stay motivated so your grades reflect your hard work when applying to colleges.

Who has inspired you educationally? My mom has inspired me educationally. She teaches English at the high school, and I was fortunate enough to have her my sophomore year. She pushes me to be the best person I can be in and outside of the classroom.
