I think the way I’ve grown or changed the most is that I’ve been able to listen better. In previous years I would have trouble listening to teachers and other people because of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) so sometimes I would get in trouble. Now I pay attention in class all the time and control my ADHD.
The thing I’m most proud of is that I handled the workload of middle school without many missing assignments. When I moved from 3rd to 4th grade I had so many missing assignments. This year I only had a couple.
The most challenging thing for me is to get multiple projects done. I don’t have a problem when it is just 1 project. Although when you have 2 or 3 or 4 projects due by February 30th then I have a problem finishing them.
I hope that in second semester we will have more Socratic discussions and debates. The Lincoln/Douglas debates were very fun and educational.
