Schools that you have been accepted to: Johnson and Wales University and Michigan State University.

What is your favorite class and why? French because Madame Freese is so much fun to be around and she is a great teacher.

What is your toughest class and why? Physics, it’s harder than any other science or math class I have had to take.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? Study halls really help, that’s where I get most of my work done, also after school before practices, or even any spare time we get in class.

What is the biggest challenge high school students face today? Balancing grades and sports is tough. Time management is really important. Keeping your grades up and going to practices and games is tough, but using any school time you can to get your work done really helps.

Who has inspired you educationally, and why? Mr. Carlson. He’s always so invested with his students and really helps them if they need help. He’s always looking to help people and he is one of the funniest and nicest people I have ever met. He is also my class advisor, as well as my advisory teacher so I have been with him for all four years of my high school experience. I truly believe he has made it a much better experience.
