Mrs. Taube rocks!
Each day we are getting closer and closer to Spring Break which is already next Friday. Most people I know will be going on vacation to different states or different parts of New York. I am simply going home because I miss my family and I haven’t seen them since the end of January. If there is one thing I can say I dislike about being away at college it's the separation and distance between my family and I. It’s challenging at times being so far away and not being able to see them when you want to. However, I do call and video chat my mom and brother quite frequently to stay in touch. I can’t wait to see them in person!
Ever since middle school I have struggled with math. It seems like I always will no matter how much I practice. Thankfully my math teacher, Mrs. Taube, is extremely helpful! She’s one of the best math teachers I’ve had in my school career and she really tries hard to help students that struggle. Shout out to Mrs. Taube!
Soon I will schedule myself to meet with a math tutor because I know it will benefit myself in the long run. Not only are there professional tutors but there are peer tutors, students just like you and I! It’s a great service that Herkimer College offers! (P.S the tutoring service on campus is free!)
If you didn’t know, not only am I the Student Blogger, an RA (Resident Assistant), but I’m also a Freshman Senator on Student Government. Earlier this week, nominations opened for officer positions on Student Government such as President, Vice President, and Treasurer. I am formally announcing that I am running for President of Student Government! It is a huge responsibility to be President of any club, but with Student Government it is very important. Not only do you hold the position of President but you are also on the Board of Trustees for Herkimer College! There are so many responsibilities: facilitating Student Government meetings, appointing a Secretary, planning events, and much more. I believe I can hold office and help make a difference within our Student Body!
Check back next week as I share my first-year experiences with you! – Christian Hurtado
