If I was an animal I would like to be a dolphin, elephant or panda. I would be a dolphin because they are one of the smartest animals in the world. They are very graceful in how they swim. They show signs of deep feelings within the family. I would be an elephant because they too are very smart. I would like to be an Elephant because they are tall. The elephants are widely known for having a great memory. Lastly, because I like their ears. A baby elephant is adorable. Lastly, I would like to be a panda because they seem to live a life of peace. They don't seem to be worried about anything. Mostly, they eat and sleep all day long. I would also be a panda because well almost everybody likes a panda.
What would you be?
When I grow up, even more, I want to be a carpenter or a farmer. I would like to have a farm with cows, chickens, pigs, goats, dogs, etc... I would like to get away from the city noise and just live a life closer to nature. If I had a farm I would like to build furniture, like chairs and tables, cabinets, things of that sort.
What do you want to be or do as an adult?
When I was a child I liked learning about things like dinosaurs. Later I liked learning about famous people. (Sports Athletes) I remember wanting to know how did they become successful. What did they know that other people didn't know? How come they became champions and other do not? In high school, I liked to learning about famous authors. Especially Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and A midnight summer's dream. Today, I like to learn about different cultures and perspectives around the world.
If you had to choose what to learn in school, what would you like to learn?
My first wish would be that my family and friends live healthy lives. My second wish would be that my family and friends lives are full of joy and love. My third wish is that I overcome life's challenges in a positive way and that I learn to be a better person.
What would you wish if you had 3 wishes? You can't ask for more wishes.
In my opinion, a good student is someone who tries their best. A good student is someone who does their work, not to do the work, but to learn things. A good student is creative and can use their imagination to solve problems. A good student is someone who is active in their learning, they don't wait to be told what to do because they find ways to continue to learn without the teacher. A good student is someone who is kind and volunteers to help run the class smoothly. A good student understands that they are fortunate to have an opportunity to learn because not everyone in the world has the chance to get an education. A good student is friendly and respects all classmates.
What is a good teacher? Provide details and examples..
My favorite memory so far has been when I told Samantha that she could have a lunch in the room with friends. But later I told her the only day I had available was all the way until the end of the year. It was hilarious. Ha haha. Just kidding. My favorite memory this year so far is when we exploded pumpkins because it had to do with math and it was fun to see the pumpkins scare you guys.
What's your favorite memory?
As a kid, I liked Math the most because I was really good at my multiplication facts. But later on when I went to high school and I realized that my teachers had not prepared me for the challenging concepts of algebra, geometry or calculus. So, for a while I didn't like math. It was until I went to college that I really felt good about Math again. My other favorite subject is reading. I enjoy reading a good novel. I get so into the book that it's like watching a movie in my mind. When I find a good book I don't want to put it down. I like social studies because I get to find out about some crazy things that have happened in our world that most people wouldn't even believed they happened. For instance, landing on the moon, dinosaurs, mummies, ancient civilizations, wars, civil rights struggles, etc... And Science definitely awakes my imagination. It's unbelievable to think that there are small microorganisms that we can't see but that someone thought of it. Like germs, or cells.
What is your favorite subject? Why? And has it always been or has it changed?
I think I learn best when I do things, like experiments or activities that are with partners or in groups. Sometimes when I go to my math class I don't understand everything my teachers are saying so when I have a partner I feel more comfortable sharing what I did or didn't understand. I don't like to learn by only reading but also by doing things. I like to use materials ( small cubes, longs, flats, number lines, drawings) for math. I like to learn by looking at videos.
How do you like to learn? Or how do you think you learn best?
So, I had a crazy day when everything seemed to go wrong. So, one time a couple of years ago. I woke up late to go to work, before I was a teacher. I was working at UIC Hospital, and I was rushing so I didn't completely clean as good as I could've the windshield from the frost. A couple minutes later I had ran right into a pothole. I heard a huge plop sound. Right away, I heard the tires making a dragging sound. I stopped and sure enough I had a flat tire. I got out of the car and began to change my tire. I was surely going to be late but at least it wouldn't be too late. I fixed the tire, I was racing to get to work on time but because I was speeding I got pulled over by a police officer. I got a ticket. Continued on my path to work. I got to work. But realized it was Saturday. I didn't work on Saturday.
Do you have a crazy day?
I am looking forward to the winter break. I am hoping to spend quality time with family and friends. I am spending time with Dosie's family and my own. I really like when we make Christmas cookies or ginger bread man. I also look forward to going Ice Skating. Another thing, I plan to do over the break is watch a couple of movies. I am a big movie fan. Dosie and I are going to Mexico to visit my grandmother whose is sick. So, going to Mexico is definitely exciting because I get to see my dad's mom. I really like the winter and I am hoping we get some snow. Lastly, I am looking forward to waking up a little later than usual and spending time with Charlie. He is a bad boy!
What are you looking forward to during your winter break?
