Student Spotlight

By Kendall Harris

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT


I want to interview you and feature your answers—anonymous or otherwise—in the January issue of the iGlobe school newspaper. AND…I challenge you to interview a student or more than one (even a particular group) and write an article about that individual or group using the same questions. In the meantime, I am asking you to answer my questions, and send it back to Mr. Mistretta via skype or school email.


For interviews you do with other people, use these same questions. Or, try to discover some atypical information from them that would make an intriguing article.


Don’t forget—send these back in answered by you!


HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS TO YOU:


Q. If you had a magic wand and could change anything about the school, what would be the number one change you would make and why?

A. There are no changes I would like to make. The school has numerous opportunities to join clubs, get help with school work, and have fun.


Q. If you were the principal and found yourself in charge of us, what would be the first thing you would do?

A. The first thing I would do is talk to some people and maybe even get to know them a little. I would ask if there are any improvements that need to be made or if there is anything they would like to see happen in the school.


Q. What makes a good teacher/principal?

A. A good teacher/principle would have qualities such as patience, understanding, and respect. Of course, students must respect the teachers/principle, but it should go both ways. It can be hard and tiring at times with these careers. Patience is key. Being able to understand is also important. Everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect. If a student was unable to complete something or complete said task correctly, understand that not everyone understands things right away. Even though most principles have these qualities, they are still important to the student body.


Q. What makes a good student?

A. A good student remains determined and tries their best to remain on task to secure a successful outcome/future. Sometimes it’s hard to find motivation to get up every morning and try your best with your assignments every day, but you have to keep in mind why you’re doing all of this. Some students may set goals to help them accomplish a successful school year. It is also good to remain in contact with teachers and remember they are there to help.

· If school were a movie, what movie would we all be in?


· I can’t think of a movie, but as far as a show I would say High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. The kids in the show are very creative and talented as well as the students who attend this school.

· What is fame and what is the route you intend to take to get there?

· Fame is when someone is very well known. Someone who has a lot of fame has made some big achievements or has done something that influences or inspires others. Usually they have done something that many people enjoy, or something that many people are against. In order to achieve fame, you have to do something that catches the attention of many people.

· How do you define peer-pressure and is it dangerous? Why?

· Peer pressure is when others are pressuring you/ influencing someone to do something they may not want to do. It’s dangerous because it could lead someone to do something bad or unhealthy like drinking or smoking. It can also lead you int the wrong group of people and get you involved into serious problems. Peer pressure is also not good for someone emotionally, it makes someone feel like everyone else has power over them.

· If you had the power to hire anyone in the world to be your teacher, who would you hire and why?

Leonardo da Vinci because he was one of the most skilled and greatest artists. I have a huge passion for art and especially painting. I also have a fascination and love for art from his time.
