The NCVPS Super Student Award is for students who have gone above and beyond the course requirements and as a result have enriched the content, class dynamic, their own learning, their classmates’ learning, and even their teacher’s learning.
“My future plans are to have a few jobs. I want to be a fine-art photographer, a lawyer, a professional violinist, and an author/poet. Playing the violin, writing, and taking photos are my aspirations, and I want to continue them into adulthood. Being a lawyer or a judge is a career I see myself fitting into nicely. I am very stubborn, determined, and if I have a point to prove, you will hear all about it. In the next year though, I just want to focus on excelling and cultivating my photography style and my knowledge of the violin.” –Peyton
“Peyton is an exemplary student. She is a natural artist. She looks at things creatively, so that her results bring a surprise to the viewer. She is also a very self-aware and competent writer who is able to express the process of art.” –Lisa Prefontaine, NCVPS Middle School Art of Discovering Photography Teacher
Taking an NCVPS course let me do things at my own pace and advanced my learning by showing me different examples, and by making my classes easily accessible.
Advice to Online Students
My advice to other students is to write your notes down and to keep an agenda with due dates of your online projects and assignments.
One of my favorite online sites to go on is YouTube. On YouTube, I watch gaming, commentary videos, and makeup videos.
Gadgets and Things
My favorite devices are cell phones, laptops, and the PlayStation.
A goal I had for myself this semester, which was school-orientated, and that was to make 100’s in all of my classes. Unfortunately, I didn’t reach this goal, and I will try for it in next year’s semester.
Something random about myself is I love cats!
I don’t have a favorite book. It’s too hard to pick a favorite! I would have to say I like Paint the Wind, the Percy Jackson series, and all the other adjoining series. I prefer printed books over Ebooks.
I have such a wide variety of music that I like, from pop to rock. I would have to say I like the bands Fall Out Boy, and Set it Off, and artists such as Adore Delano, and such.
Again, I just can’t pick a favorite, I would have to say it would be Supernatural, and The Walking Dead.
I play the violin and have for 2 years. With the violin, I have made All-County Orchestra. I like doing my makeup, just for fun though, as I look at makeup as an art because with art there is no wrong way or right way to do it.
