Katie-I really had no idea how difficult your past has been, I think you have done a lot of cool stuff at AHS and you have clearly overcome a lot in your life. You could tell you were sad about your past, but you maintained your composure extremely well so good job!

I'm impressed that you didn't use note cards. The lecture flowed very well. It's great that you decided to not follow your sister.
You didn't let anything stop you. You've been given reasons to just give up but you haven't very impressive.
You'll be a great teacher. You were very natural up there. Good luck Katie!

Home life can be tougher than people think.

Having to grow up earlier then most people sucks because there is always a lot of pressure.

You did a great job!

PBS is the BEST! I miss all those shows terribly... I had no idea that you had these difficulties. They certainly would be rough, and I'm glad you were able to grow from them, even though it might not have been the best way to do so. I liked your strength quotes! It's so great that you have been able to turn your seemingly terrible situations into great learning experiences! That takes a lot of maturity. Good luck with your future as well! I too am pursuing a career with special needs. It is an incredibly rewarding field. Great job!!

I really like your dress!! I like your pictures. Its really cool that when you could not cheer you still became involved. Teaching is going to be awesome!! That is what I want to be too. Keep working hard and you can get everything you want in life.

You were very open with your past, it made your presentation much more real to the audience, good job.
I didn't know you did cheers, cool. :)
It was very smart of you to focus during junior year.
I love that house. It's picture perfect.
Great job!

It's so amazing what you have made out of your life even if you didnt get the childhood you asked for. It takes a strong person to become the person they want to be and not be influenced by others. Great job making it to state in DECA! Overall your presentation was great, best of luck next year at Metro and in the rest of your life.

TomB said...

quite a changeover from the lightheartedness of earlier presentations, but in a good way, not all experience that define us is positive at the time. impressive move going from sports to academic extracurriculars, thats a big change. great job!

RickM2009 said...

Very strong catch at the beginning, I was instantly attentive. You have a great future ahead of you, metro state is a very wise choice for a school. You were easy to hear, and you looked good presenting it. Great job!

BrittneyW said...

I loved how you talked about the negative and turned it into the positive. I loved your ideas for the future and how your going to work to reach those goals.

MackenzieL2009 said...

You've had some tough stuff in your life it sounds like, but I think it's good that you have done a lot of different things at Arapahoe and you've worked hard! You also did a pretty good job presenting you talked loud enough and had pretty good eye contact with the audience, plus you did a great job being clear and consise! Good luck!

IreneL2010 said...

Katie, you truly are a very strong person! You had to go through so much through your life, in such a short amount of time, and you have still come out on top! Obviously you care so much about being the best you possibly can be! You did such an amazing job in DECA this year! I was so happy to be able to share such an amazing experience with you! As for your future, you are going to make such a great teacher because of all of the life lessons you have learned! I can't wait to see what your future brings for you! You are so passionate about life, and I know that your life is going to be awesome because you are so hardworking!

SarahE2010 said...

I think you have come a long way in your life. I think it is also really cool that you have done so many different things in schoool. good luck at Metro! My suggestiuon would to be to make more eye contact.

JakeF said...

I deffiantly watched Arhtur every morning before I go to school. It takes a lot of courage to share us what you did and im glad that you did share with us. I gotta say it was fun having you as a wrestling manager. You did a erally good job presenting and it was really easy to connect to you.

kaytlinr said...

I thought it was interesting how no matter what life threw at you, you were able to make the best out of life. I also thought that you kept your cool and kept the ball rolling.

AdrienneB2009 said...

I'm sorry you had to go through adulthood before you were supposed to.
Junior year kicks your butt!
Congratulations on working to get to state!
College!
Great presentation, Kaity! You will go far!

Steven W said...

I like how you connected your growth with your sisters faults. It would have been really easy to follow the same path. It shows how responsible and hard working you are. Great presentation!

KatieO2010 said...

Excellent job. I could definetly relate to your experiences in the past. You did a great job of telling your story with feeling as well as making it flow really nicely. It was good that you diddnt use note cards, it made the presentation much better.

Knicastro said...

You started off really heavy but you totally used that to build up the speech and keep our attention. You explained where you are coming from and where you are going really well.

DrewB2009 said...

I like how you talked about turned a past negative into an opportunity to grow. It's cool how you didn't use any note cards and just talked to the audience. Your future looks like it will be a lot of fun. Good luck.
Eric Law says-Looks like you turned everything into a positive and thats awesome.

SaraB2009 said...

I thought your presentation was very good! I thought you really opened up well to the class! Thanks for sharing with us! Good Luck next year in college!

mollyp2010 said...

It is unfortunate that you had to grow up so fast, but it is good that it has taught you so much about how you want to live your life. I thought it was interesting how you had something different that you focused on every year of high school, but i think that its cool that you got to experience so many different things. You seemed a little nervous at first, but that wore off and your speech was great. good luck with everything!

Pat said...

I thought you had a very strong presentation. I thought it was very affective how you didn’t have any notes in front of you because it gave a more personal and engaging speech. I thought it was great how you showed your struggles and how you have grown from them to be the person you are today. Great job

HaileyM2009 said...

I love how each time an obstacle or difficulty came up in your life you dealt with it and looked for new opportunities.
Your presentation makes it obvious that you have worked hard and I hope you are able to achieve everything you want in life!

Kim C. 2010 said...

The pictures were very good and so was the information. The only suggestion I have is to wrap your ideas towards one goal.

Tricia said...

well done for being able to talk to your background presentation without using notes. You kept a good pace, keeping me engaged and admiring the way in which you have risen to the challenges of your personal life and beyond. This confidence in speaking note-free will stand you in good stead for the future.
