A Reflection of a Year of AP Bio!
AP Bio this year has been one of the most engaging, yet challenging classes that I have ever been apart of. I will admit, creating websites at first sounded like my worst nightmare because I really do not get along well with technology. But, the website allowed me to express what I was learning in a really fun and personal way. I would have never imagined making a website because to me, creating a website always sounded really boring. Yet, from this experience I have improved my tech skills tremendously and I was able to reflect on things I learned in class, and it was really cool knowing that other people could be learning from the things I posted on my site. I have to say my favorite post on my website has to be my LiMPETs Citizen science vlog. I have always found the ocean fascinating so being able to get hands on with creatures in tide pools was a dream come true for me! I also learned SO MUCH information about the ocean, invertebrates, and coastal habitats that I loved being able to share in my vlog. Another reason why I am particularly found of this post is because it was first video blog (vlog) I had ever made and found the experience really enjoyable. Besides just learning from Mrs. Girard, I learned a lot from my classmates. I was blessed to be apart of a class of girls who were as fascinated with biology as I was. I was able to relay on them when I needed help, ask questions when I didn’t get a problem, and text them when I forgot my homework in my locker. I could not have asked for a better group of young women to work with. They taught me that it is okay to ask for help from others and to communicate how you are feeling. There was times when I felt so confused by cellular respiration or water potential, and there was a smiling face ready to help me right when I asked. I will continue to use the skills that I have learned this year in AP Bio for the next chapter of my journey through high school science, with AP Chem, and beyond. Thank you ladies and Mrs. Girard for a wonderful year!
