What is your favorite class? I think that my favorite class is psychology because it is something I’m very interested in studying in college. I find the course fun and challenging at the same time.

What is your toughest class? Math. It’s certainly not my thing, but I work as hard as I can to improve.

How do you balance your class work and your extracurricular activities? It’s tough, especially during the musical. It’s important to develop time management skills, especially before going to college.

Who has inspired you educationally? Mr. Long and Mr. Greenstone because music has always been a big part of my life. They have both been my teachers for four years. I respect them and know that they have taught me a lot about hard work and dedication that I have applied to both music and education.
