Mrs. Schmidt is a sophomore english teacher at West Clermont High School. She teaches English II and Act-Prep. I decided to interview her this week over last minute semester thoughts as well as going into the 2nd semester. Below are some of the questions I had asked.
Is this last week stressful?
No, this last week has been good. The previous week was bad.
How do you feel about teachers giving students tests the last week of the semester?
I am 100% all for it because I think it helps keep the students engaged the last week of the semester, it’s a good idea.
What kind of work do you usually give to students the last week of the semester?
I usually like to give something that allows students to gain credit, raise their grade, or allow students who are trying to raise their grade to passing.
Do students typically get lazy knowing it’s the last week?
Yes, or they become hyper and engaged where they start to look at any missing assignments they may find on Schoology. Usually, that’s the time where I get piles of missing work that students are frantically trying to turn in for full credit.

Ever since I was in middle school I have been in love with makeup! I remember always taking my mother’s makeup and playing around with it, and when I was done with one look I’d wipe it off and then start a new one.

I have always wanted to start my own makeup brand, I even put it on my bucket list!
