Some of my kids



- Sweet, hates getting in
trouble, when confident it's easy to tell she's quick and intelligent.
- Watches out for and
cares for her friends, always kind, sometimes distracted.
Gabriela- Fun, happy, positive, participates,
very smart and quick, creative, confident but so kind
to everyone and loves so much. I want to be like her when I grow up!
Bianca- so bubbly, very funny,
hard-working (she goes straight to "her" restaurant after school and
works until 11 pm every day including Sat. and Sun., too much work for a 7th grader in my opinion, no wonder why she's tired and can't concentrate sometimes!)
- Just moved (3 months ago)
from Peru, extremely talkative, overwhelmed by English but learning a lot, sassy and funny.
- one of my favorites,
makes me laugh every day, he's like a boyband member from South Korea- always dancing/talking/singing/complaining...hilarious.



Mrs. Nicea Gedicks- Prepared, cares about each student, strict when needed, fun and spontaneous, positive and recognizes progress in students, expects a lot from her students.
Takumi- Very sweet, likes to sleep. Juan-Very smart, doesn't like to be told what to do. Sebastian A.-Likes to talk and has very mellow personality. Anthony- Smiles all the time and excited to participate when he understands. Sebastian G.- Smart, but mostly he stays on task and works hard. William- Can be a great contributor but usually would rather socialize.
Adrian- Inquisitive and has a sweet shy smile.
Josue- Quick and eager to participate, sometimes mischievous.
Sandra- Smart but doesn't like attention.
Mrs. Keller- helpful and always trying to be patient and help the bring out the best in the students!

Here's a fun project I did.. covering books with descriptions of what good readers do.

Grace- from Hong Kong- once shared
her most special experiences was going to the temple.
Brayan- His family's from Argentina, I think.

What a blessing when we can and choose to enjoy this life.

But when we can't...

"...that I suffer the will of the Lord in the flesh, it mattereth not,
if it so be that I am saved in the kingdom of God."

Ether 15:34, The Book of Mormon

While we're in this "flesh" on this earth we'll all suffer something; physical/mental/emotional weakness and trials. But if we can remember our goal to be "saved in the kingdom of God" then maybe this life won't bear us down so much sometimes.

But, how wonderful when we can and choose to enjoy this life!
