Reflection on Seventh Grade

When I first arrived in August, the month school started, I expected just another easy school year. But I soon realized seventh grade was going to be the hardest year yet. It first hit me by surprise when when I wasn’t getting the grades I expected, but eventually I figured out that if you study a little everyday and work hard at your goals it will get easier.
In seventh grade I learned to study all subjects so you don’t just focus on one. There was also going to be a lot of homework to be finished. Also I had very little free time so the earlier I got things done the more I had.
As the year comes to an end, seventh grade is still hard, but I reached my goals with a lot of effort. If I had to do it over I would study more for tests. My advice to next years seventh graders is to hope for good fair teachers, study a lot, and prepare for everything.


When you think of leadership, you think of a king or one person guiding everyone; however don’t think leadership falls in one person leading others. I think leadership is in someone when they lead them selves or a group leading each other. If there is one leader and that leader makes a mistake then everyone is affected, but if you lead yourself and make a mistake it only affects you. Don’t make bad things happen to other people by your mistake.

Don’t rely on others for everything. Be independent. Be brave. Take others advice but don’t always fallow it. Trust yourself. Use what you know. Learn from your mistakes but don’t make others.
