Meet our Star Student - Anna

Name: Anna Marie

Grade: 12

Meet our STAR student of the month Anna.  She is 18 years old and loves cats. She’s passionate about reading and writing and likes to write short stories. Her favorite color is black and she enjoys doing yoga. Anna has been attending Cal-Pac since 9th grade.  She has two older brothers who also attended Calpac and they both had such a positive experience that she decided to join Calpac.

In her spare time, she likes playing video games and baking which is something she does at least 3 times a week. She likes baking muffins and sugar cookies.  Her favorite movies and books are How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Insidious, Iron Man, The Mortal Instrument series and The Black Company series.

Anna loves to dance specifically Kpop dancing.  Her special interests are learning about other cultures and languages.   Her college plans are not yet set in stone, however her end goal is to get a teaching degree so that she can become an elementary school English teacher.

Here are some study tips/advice from Anna:

1. My first tip would be to eliminate all distractions while you’re working in school.

2. My second tip is to set goals for yourself. Its important to maintain motivation while working. Setting goals will help you keep motivated and focused.

3. The last tip I have is to take breaks when needed to avoid becoming stressed.

Ten years from now, Anna see’s herself working in a school as a teacher. The ideal job is to start off teaching elementary or kindergarten level.  20 years from now, she see’s herself as a high school teacher or a college professor. She wants to try private tutoring at some point in her life.  Outside of her career, she would love to see herself with a house and children.
