My Clear Sky Journey

Transcript: Camila Rodriguez Edition 3rd grade 2nd grade I came to Clear Sky in 2nd grade after moving from Saudi Arabia. I made new friends and learned better English. My teacher was Mrs.Brown, who moved away and another teacher, Ms.Garcia, took her place. 5th Grade History waiting to be written... In third grade, my teacher was Mrs. Schneider. At this point, I was speaking English pretty well and I was doing really well in core subjects like math, reading, and writing. I made new friends and grew a love for science. In 4th grade, I had Mrs.Schneider again. At that point, I was speaking English fluently understanding it well. I got a chance to be in the spelling bee, but misspelled the word "swagger". I made so many new friends and learned a lot of new things. Middle School!!! 4th grade Even though I'm not completely done with 6th grade, I still want to talk about my favorite experiences. In the beginning of the year, I was so psyched to finally be in 6th grade and have Mrs.Zukowski as my teacher. I made so many new friends and started mixing them up in different classes. I moved to the highest math class, and got to go to Outdoor Ed where some of the best memories and times in my entire LIFE happened. I feel like I've improved so much and I feel very accomplished. Last year, I had Mrs.Klein as a teacher. Mrs .Klein gave me one of the best elementary experiences that I had ever had. She always believed in me and always supported me to be myself and spark the creativity inside me. One of my favorite parts of 5th grade was AmeriTown. I got to learn how it feels to be like an adult and be responsible. 6th Grade The Elementary School Tree 7th Grade My Clear Sky Journey
