  • "How have your four years of high school been?" "It's been so good. Just the combination of working so hard and having that final year where you're about to leave but it's like the best year." "Has it really been the best year of high school?" "Um, I think it's one of the best years because you're at a point where you're comfortable and ready to move on and you have all these cool memories." "What are you looking forward to?" "I cannot wait to go to college and just explore and have new experiences. I'm excited to see where life takes me." "What was your favorite memory from high school?" "One of them was doing zumba with the Best Buddies club. Another was beating DV at the football game. Oh, and also homecoming. It was indescribable. I wasn't expecting it at all and I felt more connected to the school and realized how much I cared for it."

  • "Did you get acceptance letters yet?" "Yes I got accepted." "What was it like getting them?" "It felt good. College is a place holder for me until I go into the military. In college I'm going to a criminal justice major, then army for 6 years and then try to be a federal agent like FBI or something."

  • "Do you have a job?" "Yes, at the Habit." "What is it like having a job as well as school?" "Having a job is cool and who doesn't like money? It's nice having independence and freedom to support yourself. School doesn't really interfere with my work, since I make sure I have time to do hw either before or after work. P.S. I give discounts!"

I had a student my first year who was a difficult student, he had problems with suspension and all sorts of behavior problems but we somehow really connected.
