Okay, I would like to start off by sharing some of my things that I wish my old teachers knew. I always wanted them to know that I didn't speak that much in 5th and 6th grade because I didn't want to make a mistake in English when I spoke. I wasn't really that good at communicating in English because I only had a few years in the country. I think my teachers thought I was shy, but I wasn't I just didn't feel to comfortable to speak yet. I also wished my old teachers knew that I liked to draw so that they would've done more activities with drawing. I wish my high school teacher, Mr. Cesario knew that I was falling asleep in his class not because his class was boring but because I was always exhausted from the previous day after many miles of running. It was my first class and I never ate breakfast so I would always be tired. I never got a chance to tell him that. I also wish that my old teachers knew that sharing things about their life with us would make us like school more. (At that time they really never got to know us or us got to know them). I wish my teachers knew that I appreciate their hard work and how they helped me become a better person.
What do you wish your teachers knew?
When I was a kid I was really fast at running. I was so fast I was able to keep up with bicycles. I used that ability to run from my childhood and joined running clubs in Elementary and High school. I now am encouraging other students to find their own journey with running. I want you to reflect on your strengths. What are you amazing at? What things can you do in the future with those abilities?
If I could be an animal I wish that I was a Eagle or an Elephant. I think Eagles are very cool because they can see from so far away. They can fly fast and are really liked by people for their majestic beauty. I like the Elephants because they live in a society that seems pretty loving. They take care of each other. Plus, how cool would it be to be that big. They are intelligent and they make me laugh when I see them in the zoo. I definitely would be a free elephant though running in the wild. I like all animals but these are a few that I wouldn't mind being in their shoes.
What cool animal would you like to be? Why?
