Im in 8th grade this year and even though the classes are fun, they are also hard. Sometimes the class may be hard but the teachers are nice. Sometimes the class is easy but I might have a problem with the teacher. But I can tell you that I have no problems with any of my teachers whatsoever. I have Algebra 1 which is very challenging. But even though the class is hard, Mrs.Chiba is understanding and is a fun teacher. I also have Mrs. Trovato for science and she inspires us to do our best! I also have other teachers that are very amazing and it would have been a rough start for me if I didn't get the help from all of my teachers.
Even though the quarter is only 2 weeks in, we are already working on our first quarter projects. My parter for the rest of the year is Jonathan. He is a 7th grader and this is his first year in the media productions class. Luckily our first quarter project is on track. We decided to do our story on the Plantation Coffee Company in Lihue. Some of the students who dropped out of high school early were hire by the coffee company and guided to a better future. Some of the students dropped out of high school because they have either been doing drugs or alcohol. So we scheduled interviews and we seem to be on track.
last but not least, would be that I get to finally see my friends. Even though I saw my media friends over the summer, I finally get to see my other friends from other classes. I also got to meet some new people. Mostly the new students in the media class. But the thing is that I need to become friends with everyone in the class because we are going to be spending a week together as a class in the mainland competing in the STN Convention. We will also be sharing a hotel room with 2 of your peers. So it's a good idea to be friends with each other.
So overall I can't wait for the quarter to be in full swing so I can show Jonathan how fast the media class moves and what the stress is really like. Since I have great teachers, my project is on track, and I have friends by my side, I can tell that quarter one will be a great beginning. Until next time, bye!
