The next round of  STAAR exams comes Tuesday. For freshmen, there’s only been one other STAAR exam and that went anything but smoothly as most ninth graders didn’t know what to expect and were stressed out. The morning of the English STAAR exam was extremely chaotic. All 576 freshman made a line fr...

Sports are primarily a big deal; especially in Texas. I am, in fact, a sports fan myself along with almost everybody else. However, as fun as it is to show spirit for the many sporting events in high school, I believe that we should show just as much support to the fine arts activities at school. Orga...

Group projects are great opportunities to collaborate and learn valuable skills. Students learn how to work with others and figure out what their strengths and weaknesses are. Although most of the members get their work done on time, there is always that one person who constantly comes up with ridiculou...

As a freshman, the biggest difference moving from middle school to high school was the bell schedule. Instead of eight 45 minute classes every day, students only go to four classes every day. The catch? Each one is 90 minutes long. At first thought, I was pretty excited (like any naive freshman)...

In high school, everyone thinks you have to know exactly where you want to take your life. You have to know what college you want to attend, what job you want, where you want to live and all those things. If you don’t, you are wasting all your classes that you’re taking. However, I believe that high sc...

Texas weather is unpredictable. One day it might be a bright sunny but the next it will be pouring rain. The bipolarity of the weather could drive someone crazy. It is so frustrating because you don’t know when you need a jacket or if it is a shorts day. There are times when students come to...

Weed. Cannabis. Pot. Ganja. Mary Jane. Whatever you call it, marijuana and its use is a topic that receives mixed opinions based on who you’re talking to. Some believe it's a dangerous gateway drug that can damage the user both physically and mentally and that its legalization in the states will do mor...

Students are humans. Teachers are humans. Many people tend to forgot that at times. Teachers overlook the fact that students have many things outside their life at school. With that being said, some students spend more than eight hours of their day at school which means one-third of the day is spent...

This past week, I was involved in a very uncomfortable situation in my English class. What seemed as something I couldn’t bounce back from, turned into a learning experience for me, and hopefully for other students as well. Students were given an assignment to create a story using only pictures. No wor...
