February 2018 - Jordyn Banks

Jordyn Banks


What is your favorite class?  Why?

My favorite class is science because I likes learning about life outside of the human body.  Cell life, chemistry and plant life are interesting.

When will you graduate?

I will graduate after first quarter next fall.

What do you plan to do after graduation?  How will you accomplish this goal?  

I will get a job and start working but am not 100% sure what field I want to work in yet. I like to work with cars and I like mechanical work so I want to be an automotive repair technician. I will probably go to a trade school for this.  

Later I plan on going to Schoolcraft and Eastern Michigan University to become a teacher.  I want to become a special needs teacher.  My little sister has Down’s Syndrome and she has inspired me to want to help children just like her.
I will accomplish my goals by staying in school and doing all of my work.

What are your hobbies?

I like to draw,  watch movies and hang with friends.
