JADE DELILAH PARKS
The People of My Success
Hello there! My name is Jade D. Parks. I am currently 13 and in the 7th grade. My project is about some of the people who have taught me things that will stay with me for as long as I am able to remember. These people are the reason I try my best. They have taught me lessons that will stay with me throughout my growth. This project is important for me because I feel like it’s good to honor or remember the people that have helped make you who you are today.
This is me!
I go to ICS and will be finishing my 8th grade year there as well. I probably look the same as I did when I was 5, but I have changed as a person. I learned many things about myself, both the easy way and the hard way. One thing I learned about myself was the type of people I should be friends with. That was something I learned the hard way. It’s good to find people that you feel comfortable with and you feel yourself around. It helps you feel closer to them. Finding similarities with your friends can make them feel more like family than friends. I learned that I feel best being myself. It’s great to have at least the tiniest bit of self confidence. I feel like myself and it truly makes me a happier person. It may be hard, but try it!
This is Ms. G.
She is my current science teacher. She, of course, has taught me science. Ms. G has taught me to go for it. Usually I end up having conversations with her about wanting to play basketball. She tells me to go for it and try it out. She has also taught me that I am very interested in learning about science. She has helped me discover that I would love to continue learning more about science. She has taught me how to always have a way to back myself up and have reasoning to defend myself.
This is Mr. B.
He is my current ELA and home room teacher. He has taught me to be confident about myself. He always walks in with great outfits and always has self confidence. Mr. B has also made me realize that I write a lot. Sometimes when I get the wrong answer, he gives me constructive criticism and ways to fix my answer correctly. He has always helped me when getting an answer slightly wrong so that I don’t feel awkward about it afterwards.
This is Ms. Frazier.
She is my current Social Studies teacher. Ms. Frazier has taught me, of course, social studies, and that history is very interesting. She has taught me that there are always various sides to a story. She shows us that there are always different people that have different opinions and that it's okay to disagree.
This is Ms. O.
She was my former science teacher in 5th grade. She has taught me that science may be very complex, but it is fun. Ms. O has also made me discover my obsession with making handwritten notes. She has also taught me Math before. She made me remember that Math isn’t as easy and succinct as it may be.
This is Ms. Nunez.
She used to be my former 5th grade teacher. She used to teach me social studies and ELA. She has taught me to reach for the stars. I had wanted to start a “Project” within the school and she supported the idea. She has always thought that I have what it takes to do what might seem impossible. She is a very supportive person and will help you with anything. I also think that Ms. Nunez made me realize that I enjoy making handwritten notes. Ms. Nunez has also taught me to have confidence. She tells me to start questions with “I know the answer is...” because it’s guaranteed to be right.
