Super heroes usually have lots of different powers like x-ray vision, telepathy, super strength, and several other things. When you think of superheroes you think of Batman, Spiderman, Superman, Ironman, Flash, and Rogue. But not all people are like superheroes most are just normal. But when you put them together they make a Super Sophomore. Kristina Halvorson's intelligence, Mickell Maller's way with words, and Rachel Brown's eyes.
Now a days all you hear about are hybrid things, like: the new hybrid cars that run on electricity or a new type of hybrid breed of an animal. Now what if it was possible to make a hybrid freshman student? How would this person think, look, and act around others? Well we put the hair of Kim Allen, the intelligence of Natalie Wallace and the humor of Shylo Dooley.
I call this person Kim Wallooley.
When people think of superheroes their minds go to thoughts of Wolverine, Wonderwoman, and Batman among others. Of course Superman who is able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, crash through any obstacle and exhibit xray vision must be added to the list. But in this writeup we are talking about SuperJunior. What would SuperJunior at VHS look like? Well in this case SuperJunior would have the perseverance, work ethic and intelligence of Souvanny Miller, the humor of Zach Dillon and the physical prowess of Collin Moeller, put the three together and you get SuperJunior (pictured left).
Today I interviewed Mrs. Wilcoxen because she is my favorite teacher. I think her job is wonderful. She helps students every year to graduate and she also puts up with a lot of angry students, but what teacher doesn’t?
Now she is not just any regular teacher she is an alternative ed teacher. When students fail a class they retake it in her class, so they have the opportunity to graduate. Mrs. Wilcoxen says her job is like being a teacher with total freedom. Some decisions she has to make everyday are consequences for students, how her class is run and organization throughout the day.Her favorite part about her job is her students. Her least favorite job is correcting papers on time. Even though “Family Guy” can be important too sometimes.
Some of things that have changed while she has been working are job security. She has been teaching for 14 years now. And that is a long time and a lot of experience. Before that she went to college for 4 years and got her teaching degree. Well actually it took her 10 years to complete four years. She went to the
The advancement to being a teacher would be becoming a principal and getting more money. But she does not want to do that because she does not work for the money. And she is too sweet to punish students so harshly.
On May 29th the school had some fun in the sun with Spring Fling. It was a day filled with snow cones, clown cars, barbeques, and the teacher/student softball game. There were other activities, Mrs. Willard had a volleyball net out and some kids put a football game together.
There were things to do inside if you weren't a fan of the sun. Mrs. Riley had movies playing in her room all day, she had Iron Man, Wall-E And others. The mods were filled with video games. The two history rooms (Baker and Brown) had the Wii and Xbox 360. Wilcoxen had pancakes in her room all day, with chocolate chips in them. Right across from that there was a Kareokie room in Mr. Izett's Room.
The big event ended with the teacher/student softball game. The teachers did pretty well during the duration of the game, but the students had talent that couldn't be reached. So I would say it was a very good day for Vernonia.
My second choice was Tricia levenseller. Her project is on how to write a book. She made up her own characters and went step by step on how to do it. It was very easy to understand and the characters sounded realistic by the way she described them.
2) Amber Eastlick was working on photography. She put two well taken photos of her and Cody Smith in a frame. She also included an impressing photo album.

Informational Interview for "Career Exploration 2" by Tricia Levenseller
Practice makes perfect, and this is true for everything that we do. Anybody that is committed to being good at anything must continually work at it. It may be repetitive and annoying, but greatness can only be achieved as we endeavor to master ourselves in the art of our choice.
Writers especially, are faced with this concept. Nobody is born literate. It is something that takes time and effort.
