- Do you like RVA?
I couldn’t be prouder to call this my school. I believe that the RVA fully embodies its motto: “Relationships. Virtues. Academics.” I have grown close with many of my classmates over the last year, and I can even pick their face out of a crowd. The teachers from RVA instill valuable lessons into their everyday classroom lectures. As Mr. Duwe says, “I don’t teach you guys math; I use math to teach you.” I have had the opportunity through RVA to enrich my learning at my own pace. There are certainly days that I do not feel like doing stuff in school, as any teenager would say, so this flexibility is really beneficial for me. I never thought I’d be able to take any dual credit classes during my high school career, but I have the privilege to say that I will be graduating with 15 college credits under my belt!
- What is your favorite class?
My favorite class is Foundations of Leadership with Mr. Duwe because of the inspiration he brings to his students. He shares quotes with us and always leaves us thinking.
- What are some hobbies you have?
I enjoy singing and writing and entering competitions for both. I also love working with children, especially those with special needs.
- What do you see yourself doing in the future?
I see myself going into elementary special education because of my love for these kids.
- What class do you think is most important? Why?
I have a split opinion on what classes are important. I think that math classes are very important, even though I don’t enjoy the subject myself. Math teaches us how to think critically and outside the box.
- What is your advice to be successful in RVA?
To be successful in RVA, staying organized is the most important thing you can do for yourself. You don’t need to be as organized as I am (titling assignments in a class folder such as “01.07 Lab Questions,” and keeping a to-do list for the day,) however keeping assignments in folders, according to what kind of assignment they are. This would be very beneficial to your education. “If you aren’t organizing, you’re agonizing!” -Mr. Duwe.
