How do you think you earned student of the month?
I really don't know?!? But if I had to guess it would be the fact that I was really behind and then got caught up in a matter of a couple of weeks. I would also like to think that I have a good attitude about school work.

My mom was excited but nothing super extravagant.

Well, I'd like to think I'm good at art and I have Cystic Fibrosis. (which like only less than 1% of the world has so that's pretty unique) I am also a Jehovahs Witness!
What do you like best about the virtual school?
I like the fact that you can do the work almost anywhere. (as long as there is an internet connection)
What advice would you give other students trying to earn student of the month honors?
Probably just to do their best! School can be stressful so give yourself a break if you need to. (Just not too many breaks)
