When I first arrived at Claremont in the 8th grade I had no idea what I wanted to do for the future. I hated science and never thought I would want to be taking physics, but someone changed that. Ms. Cristancho changed all those thoughts. She made me love science; she made it something I wanted to look forward to everyday. She made the lessons fun and kept the warm-ups fresh out of her head. That’s what a good teacher does: makes the lesson fun and most of all, makes sure you learn. She changed my whole perspective on science. I never would have dreamed of liking science. Science is now my favorite subject and something that I not only do at school, but at home. Everything, from the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep, is science!!
Now, for my future, I want to work in some field of science. Maybe I’ll become a doctor or a biologist. I love science more than I love any other subject in the world. I don’t know what I would do if science didn’t exist. I think Ms. Cristancho positively influenced me in the right direction. I never got anything lower than an A in science and I hope my high school teachers will look at that and place me in an advanced science class. I think everything from cells to atoms is cool, and I want to study more about it. Science is what keeps me living (literally).
I think if I had gone to another middle school I would not have had the same experienced with science as I did at Claremont with ms. Cristancho. I think science is amazing, and if you are willing to let it, it can change you. Who doesn’t want to learn about sound, molecules, light, and fire? I think one of the reasons I like science is because it helps you figure out how stuff works. It makes your imagination expand. Science has really changed me because now when I look at something or explain something there is always a scientific reason behind it. Ms. Cristancho has really changed my life with her stories and because of her, I’m happy that I came to this school.
