Antrim offers many sports to participate in but wrestling takes the cake for me. From my seventh to my eighth-grade year, I have improved a lot and have acquired a lot of friendships along the way. Additionally, my coaches, teachers, and classmates have supported me throughout the wrestling season by encouraging and helping me to improve. It has truly been an honor to be a part of the wrestling team with my peers.

Antrim gives me the opportunity to showcase my talents such as playing the saxophone, acting, singing, and running. I am so happy Antrim offers these activities. I met most of my friends here, and I am grateful for my helpful teachers. If it was not for them, I do not know where I would be right now. I would like to thank them for supporting me every day. So, that is why I always intend to have a smile on my face.

Being part of the band program at Antrim means always having a place to go. When students are having a rough day or feeling lonely, their band family is here. Everyone is welcome and free to be unequivocally themselves!

My journey with music has been difficult, but with time, patience, and perseverance I was able to achieve my goals. Although something seems hard at first, you always want to keep trying and be determined because you never know where it can take you.

I love ELA because we read books and connect them to fun activities that help us learn about cultures and diversity. This is important because reading helps my brain understand things that I did not know before. The more I read, the more I love it and the more I learn.

The person doing the speaking is the one doing the thinking. The one doing the thinking is the one doing the learning." Students who believe they have a voice in school are seven times more likely to be academically motivated. Let’s welcome student input and bolster their success.

Being a part of National Junior Honor Society has been an amazing opportunity and one of the best experiences Antrim has offered me. As a member, you are able to take part in community service and volunteer for your school and the local community. It has been an honor to be to be inducted into NJHS.

There is an old Chinese proverb that says, “If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.” As a teacher, I am planning for a better tomorrow with the work I am doing today.

“One of my greatest joys as a teacher is shaping our little gulls’ minds and watching them take flight with the knowledge and tools to be able to succeed outside of the classroom.”
