This week, I was able to meet with my senior project advisor and a parent from the OGSD community during a SBPA meeting. During this meeting, I learned that following the news of the two school closures, there isn’t more of a fight to keep either schools open. A lot of the teachers and parents, despite fighting for months, have accepted the fact that two of the schools are to be closed this coming fall. To many, it is already an accomplishment considering the fact that there was originally going to be four or five schools chosen for closure.
I was able to complete my first practice presentation! I have a lot of work to do to say the least. A lot of reorganization of the structure of my slides and a lot of practice with public speaking. I will work further with my BASIS advisor to better my next presentation and eventually my final.
