When I was in 4th grade I sprained my thumb playing kickball. I was getting ready to catch the ball when it curved, hit my thumb and yanked it back. I tried to keep playing, but I ended up having to sit on the bench. I really wanted to contribute to the game, but since I was hurt I did the only thing I could do. I cheered on the rest of my team. I learned that just because things don’t go the way I planned, I can still be an important part in my team winning.
Now I have been learning at Byrd Middle School for 3 years. I was awarded in 7th grade the sensational award for having great responsibility, integrity, and being respectful. I am a cartoon artist who loves drawing animation and I also don’t mind drawing realistic drawings as well. Even though l love to draw, I still focus on my school academics. I’m much influenced when it comes to math. In 5th grade I was a school safety and a teacher’s assistant. I helped teachers in the morning and in the afternoon when they needed help; I would watch kids and tell them what to do if the misbehaved. During my spare time in school I would tutor students in a lower grade and sometimes in the same grade as me, if they had trouble in math. I received a gift card for doing an amazing job as a safety, being a positive influence on children, and helping them when they need help. I have amazing skills in Windows software as well as Microsoft office. I know if I set my mind to something I know I can achieve that goal. During the summer while I was with my aunt I was volunteering at a local library near my aunt’s house. I decided to take an hour and a half out of my day to read too little kids. In I am so glad I spent my time getting to know so many wonderful children. I am a well-rounded individual. I do what I’m told by an adult that I know and respect, I’m respectful, responsible, and I have great integrity.
Thanks for hearing some of my life stories. Remember this famous quote “If you believe, you can achieve." -Tupac Shakur

1/11/12 I learned today that makes mistakes in life in if you do something wrong you have to pay for what did. Not everybody is perfect in no body should think they are. I have also learned life quotes are something that define you and many ways: how you live your life, and how you show your character. I learned that a lot of people live by especially my EFE teacher Mr. Timok his life quote is Honor Above All Things meaning Honesty is the key to not getting in trouble as i believe in my words

5/10/13 Had to go back to the library for the second time this week. But before that i got to eat some banana bread that one of the students brought. So when i was done Mrs. Goemat wanted me to make packets for her summer school class so i was in the library copy lounge longer than normal. It seemed like it would only take a few minutes but it took me the rest of the class period. Had to copy and make packets, but then i kinda had a little setback when the copy machine stapled the wrong part of the packet. So i had to Un-staple then re-staple the packets that i made.
5/15/13 The beginning of class was a little bit slow. But when Mrs. Goemat came back to the class room she wanted to read to the some of the kids.
