How was High School like for Alejandro?
The high school I attend is Marquette University High School. I was blessed to be given the opportunity of choice, so I was able to attend the school. I want to take advantage of the opportunities that the school can give to me.
What subject do you enjoy the most and why?
The subject I enjoy the most is Spanish class. I enjoyed it because I was in class with people I had known since grammar school, so it went smoothly. It was also a stress-free class, although it was an AP it was not as difficult as your average AP class would be.
What is your favorite thing about your school? (The culture, the gym, the mascot, etc.)
My favorite thing about my school is the freedom they give to students. The culture is very appealing to the students because they have choices to choose the classes, they want plus the school offers a ton of resources for students to embody what they want to become in the future. An example of having freedom is students leaving school early if they have a free period during the school day or a student taking classes at colleges and universities.
What is your definition of a good teacher? And who is your favorite teacher and why?
My definition of a good teacher is a teacher that understands where each student is coming from and making class enjoyable. They can still teach the curriculum but make it in a way that does not follow the standard teaching in most schools. I do not have a favorite teacher.
What will you miss the most about high school?
The thing I will miss about high school is being around people I feel comfortable being around. Just enjoying the time, we get together in school. Other things I will miss are the football and basketball games.
What is your favorite memory so far? My favorite memory so far about high school was playing high school soccer in my freshman year. It was a fun experience to play soccer with people that I have never met. We built relationships and still talk to this day.
Share a funny story. A funny story was on the last day of the school year. The seniors played a prank, and it was just a fun time because all the teachers stood there helplessly. It was just a great time to laugh.
Would you work for the high school you will graduate from?
No, I would not work for the high school that I will graduate from because I feel like I would be working a job I do not enjoy. I was always taught that soon a job should be something I look forward to doing and not forcing myself to like it. I also do not like working for no one.
