I love the design thinking projects we do. In third grade, we got to design something to help our visitors coming for Grandparents' Day. I designed a mist shooter that would be hooked to the ceiling and mist out water to help them stay cool. The water would smell like gummy worms, too! I also designed a teleporter for my mom so she could grocery shop from anywhere in the world. We presented our designs in front of the entire class and some school leaders to see if they would want to use any of our ideas.
What are your favorite subjects?
I like science because we get to do fun labs. We also get to use iPads to search topics in class, like the different phases of the moon. I also like math because you get better the more you practice. I’m pretty good with numbers.
Why is art class fun?
I liked making Chinese fans because we were studying Ancient China in class. I also like creating Egyptian art because we learned about iconography.
What's special about being a Saint?
Having compassion, being honest, and helping others out.
What do you like about learning Spanish?
Learning about the Spanish culture is fun - like when we make food (salsa from scratch) and learn how they dance in their countries. My parents know French, and so it will be neat to teach them Spanish.
What do you love most about SSSAS?
I like that you can make friends so easily. I love all the teachers, too. They are really nice.
Do you have some favorite hobbies?
Dog walking, horseback riding, playing polo, and I like to collect rocks by the pond.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A veterinarian because I love animals, and I would get to help them.
