Melissa, I don't know why they sent you away. All they had to do was call me. From 8:20 to 11:05 I was in the classroom, packing up all the leftover notebooks, pencil boxes, and sketch pads. I'm sorry they wouldn't give you the simple courtesy of calling me to tell me you were there. I have to return on Friday, the official pick up your stuff day. Next time, please send me an email on my GMAIL, by clicking above, so I can respond.
Nataly: YES! Your writing is improving tremendously, especially your transitions. Stay with it. Great writing is great thinking. As you know from weightlifting, basketball, and drums, any high level skill requires dedicated, consistent, focused practice. The world famous coaches from ALTIS, whom I follow and whose courses I study, all say that practice with intent is the best way to improve. What does that mean? Practicing with intent means to know specifically which skill you're trying to improve, and focus your concentration and effort on that skill until you can perform it at the next level.
Abigail, you had lots and lots of stuff! You might need your backpack to carry it all. I placed all items in plastic bags, and yours barely fit. You look at all the work the class produced and it is substantial. That doesn't include the sketches, paintings, coding, keynotes, and typed work. Hopefully, you learned a lot and found the experience valuable.
That's it for now. if you know somebody in our class, please reach out to them. Remind them to stay strong and ready. Strong means finding some form of exercise, and still eating and sleeping in the right way. Ready means keeping your skills sharp. Get on Khan and keep your mind sharp!
Bye. Miss you guys!
