|A quick selfie before I left my house|
Today I attended the WCCUSD's School Board meeting, held in the cafeteria of Lavonya Dejean Middle School in Richmond California. When the meeting first started I was surprised at the amount of people that showed up and was glad to see so many supportive parents in the audience.
I was accompanied by my mother, Magdalena, seen in the photo above. After we got home she talked about how proud she was of my accomplishments. I was really happy that she felt that way about me.
|I think Jenny was a little nervous|
Our chaperon Jenny had to give a speech to the School Board, I think she was nervous but if that was me I would feel the same way. I loved the example she gave about one of her Spanish 3 students, and talked about how this program allowed her to grow, have a voice and be heard. Cynthia Ramirez gave a beautiful speech on behalf of Brown-II which was great and really talked about what she wanted from this experience.
|Don going crazy trying to run down his flags|
Sometimes I think Don's job, never stops. There he is running around trying to collect all the flags back from the students.
I got the opportunity to take a picture with Magaly Rodriguez, we were both a little disorientated from all the flash coming from the camera after taking about 30 pictures.
The Brown ladies got to show off their certificates to their parents: there I am with the blue blazer smiling and showing off my accomplishment with my cohort that is Brown-II.
I saved the best for last: a preview to next year's Ivy League Connection picture, can’t wait to see it in my school's office and in the college and carrier center in my school's library.
