Ms. Gillian she was my kindergarden teacher.
I am a girl.
I like to draw.
I am very funny.
I like this class.

I think that the charicteristics that makes a student popular are smartness, kindness, niceness, leadership, funnieness, forgiveness, honesty, integrity, goodsportsmanship, and a good reputation.

My name is Chase Jones and I am twelve years old. My favorite teacher of all time is Miss Merry. She was my pre-school teacher at two different schools and she loved me. Three interesting things about me are that I am a Christian, I play baseball, and I like to hunt. So far, this class has been fun and not fun at the same time. We can make this class better by doing more out of the class activities. There are some good things that make someone popular and some bad things that make someone popular at a Middle School. Some people have been at a school for a while or are very communicative. Kids that "look good", can get popular quick. Or if someone is very athletic and doesn't gossip or spread drama. Some of the characteristics of a popular Middle Schooler are being kind, honest, sweet, and helpful.

~ About Greyson ~
My name is Greyson Benning and I am 12 years old. I would have to say my favorite teacher of all time is Mrs. Martin which was my sixth grade year. She was my favorite teacher because she understood her students and was just plain out fun and a great teacher. I love my family and friends and they mean alot to me. I am a christian and I love going to church with my family. My last one is that I am a competitive cheerleader for Xpolsion All-Stars. So far this class has been one of my favorites ! A way to make it better is not doing so much AR things for other classes.

My name is Olivia Devecchis. I just turned 13 years old. My favorite teacher so far has probably been my sixth grade science and math teacher, Ms. Hatten. She was very funny and gave us very fun activities. We always expected something funny each day. Three interesting facts about myself are: Number one- I am a dancer. Number two- I am a gold belt in Martial Arts. Number 3- I love being with family and friends. I always enjoy company and spending a day as a family. So far I have really enjoyed this class. One thing that might make it better is doing a little more School Service.

My name is Cassidy Hartwig I am 12 years old. My favorite teacher is Mrs.Hearttung. She is my favorite teacher because she always pushed me to do better and taught me to be myself. Three interesting things about me are that I love music, I am very shy though I don't show it a lot, and that I am a big goofball. What I have thought about this class is that it is very intriguing and interesting. We could make this class better by helping out teachers and students not just with books but with many other things that they might need. Also we could make this class better by expressing our feelings and showing our traits as leaders.

My name is Mara I am 12 years old. My favorite teacher of all time was Mrs. Harris.She had a fun way of teaching us math and science
I dance, love to swim, and love music. So far this class is really fun and creative but to make it better i think we should do a little bit more hands on stuff with teachers. For example helping younger kids with projects.

I'm Lauren, and I'm 12 years old. My favorite teacher that I have ever had was Mrs. Corbeil. She was incredibly nice, and never got too mad at us, even when we were really bad. I love to swim, and go to the beach. Fishing and tubing are some of my favorite things to do. I love my friends, and I don't know what I would do without them. I think that helping others, being different, being responsible, and being kind are all good qualities of a leader.

Courtney Maxwell, age 12.
My favorite teacher probably has to be Mrs.Rodriquez, I choose her because she treated us like adults and let us make our own decisions she acted like she was a kid and helped us learn in the most fun ways!
Three interesting things about me, one- I have danced since I was two,I'm committed to it and I love it! Two- I'm very interested in community stuff for charity and helping my community. Three- I live spending most of my time at the lake with friends and family.
My opinion of this. Lass is great I love expressing how I feel and explaining things with a group of people I feel comfortable around, to make it better we need to get out that and make ourselves noticed for the great things we do!
