TOP LEARNING EXPERIENCE: CHEMISTRY

 

In my sophomore year, chemistry ended up being my favorite class because of the engaging learning experience. We had a routine schedule with various activities that caught our attention, which was a good learning style for me. Science has always piqued my interest, while chemistry stands out as one of my favorite science classes at ESD.

TOP LEARNING EXPERIENCE: PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS

 

I chose photography because it has always interested me. In the photography classroom, Mr. Fiala always had patience. He taught us every important aspect of our camera, and how to use many of the features, while I asked many questions and was confused at times. He judged my pictures in a kind way, even though I knew sometimes they weren’t very good. He allowed me to show my creative and unique side, and supported every crazy idea I could come up with to make a story show in an image.

TOP LEARNING EXPERIENCE: SCULPTURE CLASS 
 

When I’m in my sculpture class, I am allowed to let my creativity flow out into my work and create whatever I want. When I’m in the class I feel free of stress, outside distractions, and even school; allowing me to focus and feel every crack, edge, or pattern and just have fun with whatever I’m creating.

TOP LEARNING EXPERIENCE: AP ECONOMICS (MICRO and MACRO)
 

AP Economics brought light to aspects of business and the global economy that I had not previously known much about. The class taught me how a business determines how many employees to hire and what a country's GDP is composed of. I chose this class because it truly changed my outlook on the world’s countries and businesses, and it’s something that I wish to pursue in the future.

TOP LEARNING EXPERIENCE: LOWER SCHOOL ART
 

In Lower School, art class was a period of the day which every kid could look forward to, especially me. Finding something that you're passionate about can sometimes be challenging at such a young age, but because there were so many aspects of Lower School Art, anyone could find an area of it that they sincerely enjoyed. Whether it was sculpting and painting a clay chalice or creating an animal out of numerous cut up pieces of construction paper, everyone left art with a huge smile.

TOP LEARNING EXPERIENCE: NINTH GRADE WORLD CULTURES CLASS
 

My favorite class during my time here at ESD was my World Cultures class. I’ll never forget the time when we learned about Buddhism. My father, who lives overseas, would call me everyday to educate me on Buddhist teachings and I would find them so fascinating. In class one day, I wrote in Vietnamese "if there is pleasure then there is suffer"in order to demonstrate to the class that Buddha said that there are two sides to everything and that to live is to suffer. It was so cool to be able to connect what he had been teaching me with what we were talking about in class.

Place: Wolf Run Outdoor Education Center

 

Wolf Run acts as a place that I can get outside and escape the day-to-day routine of school, and just enjoy myself without the stresses of school looming over. There are so many things to do at Wolf Run, whether it’s hiking, rope climbing, or fishing that every student is destined to have a good time. It's a place that's so unique to ESD and it truly provides the best escape from the everyday stresses of high school.

Place: Stoffel Commons

 

With graduation coming up in about a month, every time I walk by the Stoffel Commons I can't help but imagine being up there in our graduation robes and caps. It's cool that a place we pass through almost every day on campus is where our ESD journey is going to end. It really comes full circle, graduating on campus. I know that I'll always be able to call ESD home and I like that graduation is representative of that.

Place: Harrison Tennis Center

 

The tennis courts in the Harrison Tennis Center have been a constant place for me on campus throughout my ESD career since I started playing on them in the seventh grade. I have played many opponents on the courts and seen many different schools across the net. I've enjoyed every match I've played at ESD, and feel as though I've grown as both an athlete and a person on those courts.

Place: Spanish Classroom

 

My favorite place at ESD is most definitely Señora Milian’s Spanish room at the back of Senior Hall. Not only do I spend the most time there, but I also feel the safest there, both literally and figuratively. Señora Milian has taught us to feel comfortable speaking Spanish aloud, which has been one of my biggest struggles in Spanish, and there are even blankets in there for when the room gets cold. Señora Milian has played a huge role in my time at ESD. This is my second year having her as a Spanish teacher and second year of her being my advisor. My experience with both Spanish and her have been so impactful.
