This month we had the opportunity to sit down with some of our sixth graders: They talked about their dreams, the people that inspire them, and their plans for the future. Most of them have been part of the NDG family since they were five years old. Anderson, Jorge, Astrid, Mariana, and Aaron, were excited to share their stories and memories as we toured around the school.
Question: What has been your favorite experience in all your years at school?
Astrid: The opportunity to learn more and now we have more time to practice and study at school.
Anderson: To have teachers who have the patience to teach and help us understand, all of that will help us in the future.
Question: What is your favorite class?
Everybody: Math class.
Anderson: Teacher Oscar is our assigned teacher and he helps us with all our different classes and subjects.
Mariana: He is always looking for fun activities so we can learn, he usually teaches us outside the classroom so we never get bored being indoors only.
Question: What would you like to be when you grow up?
Mariana: A doctor.
Astrid: A doctor.
Jorge: A doctor.
Anderson: An accountant.
