My 2014-2015 School Year

" The Year I learned things I never knew I needed to know!"

Devin Jansen, Faist period 2

A Successful Year

This year, I learned a lot not only about myself, but the way I look at life, and how I live it. Being a 7th grade girl going through life hoping for best is not the easiest job ( trust me :) ). I learned a lot about myself and the people I want to surround myself with. I learned that it is ok to stand out and be a different color, and to be yourself around everyone. I also found out who was really there for me as a friend, and who I could trust. Now, I not only feel that I can change the world, but re-shape it into a place that our future generations are proud to call home.

Why Change the World? This video is a great example of how a small idea can make a large imapct.

Making a world of difference

Genius Hour!

What do I really mean??

During this school year, I learned about myself, how to make a change, and A LOT about friendship. First, myself. During this first year a middle school-er, I found things about myself that I never knew before. I learned that being a different color and an individual doesn't make me weird, it makes me who I am today. I also learned that making a change in the world is VERY beneficial. Whether it's a large change like a beach cleanup, or a small one like a school club, a change is a change. I learned this through Genius Hour, and it really changed my outlook on life and the world. Last but but not least, friendship. This year, I learned who was really there for me and who really cared. Now that I have found the people who I belong with and who I can trust, I am as happy as a clown.

In Conclusion

This year was a blast and went by quickly! Without these valuable lessons, and teachings, I would not be the young woman I am today. I regret nothing, with the exception of a few friend choices. In the incoming years, I am looking forward to reflecting back onto my 7th grade year at CVMS, and saying what a success it was.
