What is school?

School is a vehicle to help find out who you are. Writing will show all your best qualities. History reveals our room to grow. And Math shows us our capacity to believe in truth. The well rounded student finds a way to grow every class every day.

I always said wellness, which including handball, basketball( I game at which I rule just ask keef and taylor) flag football, and floor hockey, is where a well rounded curriculum starts. I always said I was a coach first, I actually started coaching deck hockey when I was 18, because everything in sports is based on interacting with others. Sport allows us to be more than just some Norton guy or gal, we can be a teammate (I like the sound of that word, notice I didn't say captain). But your best quality shouldn't be a physical attribute. Your body can give out but your brain is less likely to pull a hammy. It would be great for you to be able to throw a ball 98 miles per hour, run the dash in sub 10 seconds, or fire a 100 mile per hour slap shot but if you can't interact by listening and communicating effectively with others no one will ever want to work with you. Your gift, your physical identity will never reach it's full potential, but your intellectual identity is limitless and writing anything will help it grow. I started writing my senior year in high school and it started with a play. I put it on with a little help from my friends and it was a great success. It was called "Bongo Baby". I even recieved offered from fellow classmates that wanted me to be in their play. I showed everyone that their offer was important and I did ever play I was asked to. I continue today to write and with every paper, essay, or memo I write I learn what my best attributes are. Do you know what your best qualities are? Try and write down 3.

3. My determination

Hello there. =]
Okay, three best qualities...I'm going to try and be original here...hmmm. This is harder than expected. I am loyal, quick (in that witty sort of way) and charming. Hahahaha, just kidding about that last one. Let's replace that with...open-minded.
