Hey Guys! I am back doing my first blog for the new school year! Before I get into the blog, I just wanted to let you guys know who my super awesome, fantabulous, and incredible partner is. It’s Taylor McCann!! She is a seventh grader at CKMS and she is new to the media class. I will post a link to her website below. Anyways this week’s blog topic is on my goals for the new school year! Since I am now a mentor I have a few new goals than I did from last year. My three new goals for the school year are, I want to become a good mentor, I want to turn in all my work on time, and I want to bond with all of the newbies.
One of my goals this year is to become a good mentor or partner. If you guys read my blogs last year you would know I was a the newbie and this is my first year being a mentor. I am really nervous about mentoring a new student because I am responsible for teaching her how to do things like the Inside Scoops, editing in Final Cut, making a script and so much more. I don’t want to be the reason why she gets a bad grade because I didn’t teach her how to do something. For me to be a good partner I need to bond with Taylor, so I am really looking forward to getting to know her because as partners we will be spending a lot of time together. Hopefully this partnership will go as well as last years and we will become great friends. So my goal is to be a great partner to Taylor and to help any other new students who need help.
My second goal is to get good grades and turn in all of my work on time including blogs, Inside Scoops, Scripts, and Projects. The first deadline I will be struggling to meet is my first Inside Scoops of the year because Taylor and I were the second pair of partners to sign up! Which means our radios are due next week. But besides that I really want to make sure all of our projects are turned in on time and we don’t procrastinate! Newbies if you are reading this don’t procrastinate because it will really hurt you and possibly your grade. You will hear that a lot and it is true! It is a huge deal for me to turn everything in on time because this will help me get a better grade and I want to get A’s in this class. Since my parents are both teachers they insist I get good grades. If I get a bad grade I will probably get grounded and that means no Netflix, which means no “Friends”, which leads to sad and bored Mia. I’m joking, but seriously no Netflix! Also, good grades are just something you want to have because it can help you in the future. I plan on achieving this goal by starting everything earlier or on time and not getting sidetracked by another task or TV.
My last goal for the year is to bond and get to know my classmates. New students you will constantly here Mr.M say this “We are the CKTV Ohana” and that is true. Last year I became friends with so many 8th graders and I am sad that they are no longer in this class. You will get the best possible friends in this class, so don’t be shy. I also want to be great friends with all the new students because I want them to feel comfortable asking people for help. This year I get to help new students, like all the 8th and 7th graders helped me last year. Hopefully I will be able to bond with them at the Kokee camp, which we will be doing this year.
These are my new goals for this school year, to be a good partner, meet all of the deadlines, and to bond with my classmates. I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog post don’t forget to look on my website for my free blog post later on this week. Also, look for the link to Taylor’s website below. Thanks for reading! Bye!
