How It Feels to Be Senior of the Month
Alyssa is elated to be Senior of the Month because she feels her “hard work has finally paid off.” Since it is teachers who choose Senior of the Month, she respects the teachers and wants to thank them for recognizing her. Although all of her teachers have had a big impact on her, she greatly appreciates Mrs. J. Jones, Mr. Kaul and Ms. Ebner.
After high school, Alyssa plans to attend Kean University to earn her degree in elementary education. She really wants to be a teacher because she loves working with children. Alyssa choose Kean because she wants to be close to home. If Alyssa could go back to freshmen year, she would tell herself, “You don’t have to do everything; you can relax and have time for yourself! You don’t need to do every single activity.”
