As a learner in middle school I was a very quiet person. I was very shy and wouldn't like talking to anyone, I loved math & Spanish. But in 8th grade I was a little different, I started making new friends, I started going out more. And I also loved school.
Math and Spanish were the areas where I was the strongest. Math was my absolute favorite subject. I felt like I understood everything, I was a fast learner when it came to math, everyone would always ask me for help. Spanish was my second favorite because it was something that I didn't really have to learn since it was my first language. But in 8th grade that changed, math was still my favorite subject but not Spanish. We got a new teacher and she was from Spain. She took Spanish to a whole other level. I actually had something new to learn and I guess I didn't like that because I was so used to the old Spanish way. But at the end of the year I really appreciated that and the new skills I learned. In the other hand, English and History were my weakest subjects. That was because I obviously was an English Learner and I felt like I couldn't read like others and I wasn't good at it. History was one of my weakest subjects because I didn't like learning about the past, I was too focused on the present, and I just couldn't learn anything.
Representing myself, and the school, was something I mastered in Freshman year. I became part of ASB (Associated Student Body). I got to represent my class, I was the voice for my class. Also, I was able to be part of a huge project which was Adopt-A-Family, it was amazing, we got to give a family the Christmas that they wished for. Another SLO that I had to master was being a self directed learner who communicates effectively. I had to learn some things about this but once I had it set I was able to self direct myself, look for help, solve my own problems but I also wouldn't be afraid to ask for something when it was needed. I also was very organized.
Becoming a detective has always caught my attention but being a surgeon did too. My perspectives changed while doing my 10 year plan. This plan was very eye-opening because I was able to plan out what I wanted in my future and how I wanted my future to look. This plan also taught me that I won't be able to accomplish anything if I don't work for it. Nothing kind of changed on my 10 year plan throughout the years because I usually stick with one goal & my interest stay the same. Now I'm still working on better communication skills.
My first year of high school helped me a lot and also taught me a lot, but it mostly taught me how to communicate better. We did a lot of presentations and that really made an impact on me. In 9th grade I also procrastinated a lot, I didn't turn in my work on time and struggled a lot with focusing on one thing.
